PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Hollis Thomas will miss the remainder of the season with a torn left biceps.

Thomas suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's 24-17 victory over the New York Jets. He will undergo season-ending surgery Tuesday.

A key run stopper, Thomas is the fourth member of the Eagles' defensive line to suffer a season-ending injury. Ends Derrick Burgess (Achilles) and Jamaal Green (leg) were hurt during the preseason and tackle Paul Grasmanis (Achilles') was hurt in Week Two of the regular season. Thomas, 29, missed all of last season with a foot injury. But the 6-foot, 306-pounder returned this season and had 16 tackles while playing in all seven games,

Defensive end Jerome McDougle, the team's first-round pick, has yet to play this season due to a severely sprained ankle.

The Eagles on Monday also signed guard-center Kevin Dogins to a one-year contract.

Dogins, 30, has played in 48 games in his career with Tampa Bay and Chicago. He was released by Atlanta during training camp this season.

Dogins replaces Pro Bowl guard Jermane Mayberry, who was placed on injured reserve with a torn tendon on in his left elbow.
