Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Malik Jackson is expected to miss the rest of the season after suffering a Lisfranc injury in Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins, sources told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport.

Jackson's reportedly scheduled to undergo surgery next week.

The interior defender played just 34 snaps before succumbing to the injury. He was carted off the field and seen in a walking boot after the game.

Jackson signed a three-year, $30-million contract with the Eagles in March, three days after he was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He was signed to work alongside, and free up, All-Pro defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

The eight-year vet was placed on injured reserve Tuesday. Veteran defensive tackle Akeem Spence, who previously played for the Miami Dolphins, was signed in a corresponding move.
