Eagles lose DT Dixon for season

Defensive tackle Antonio Dixon is likely out for the rest of the season with a torn triceps suffered in Sunday's loss to San Francisco. Dixon is expected have surgery later this week.

Meanwhile. Andy Reid confirmed that defensive end Trent Cole has a calf strain and left tackle Jason Peters has a "fairly significant" hamstring injury. Neither is expected to play next Sunday at Buffalo.

Reid said King Dunlap likely will replace Peters in the lineup while defensive ends Juqua Parker (high-ankle sprain) and Darryl Tapp (pec) are continuing to improve and could help in replacing Cole.
