PHILADELPHIA -- Defensive end Jerome McDougle will miss the at least two regular-season games with a high-ankle sprain, a mild knee sprain and a bruised hip bone in his left leg.

McDougle, who was hurt in Thursday's preseason game against the New York Jets, underwent an MRI exam on Friday.

McDougle, the 15th overall pick in the draft was expected to help fill the void left by the departure of three-time Pro Bowl defensive end Hugh Douglas.

Last week, the Eagles lost rookie defensive end Jamaal Green, McDougle's teammate at Miami, for the season with a knee injury.

The Eagles also announced they have traded second-year wide receiver Freddie Milons to Pittsburgh for a future undisclosed draft choice. Milons, who played at Alabama, was inactive for all 16 games in his rookie season.
