Mailata is competing with Andre Dillard for the starting left tackle spot after the Birds moved on from Jason Peters after more than a decade. But, a knee injury will have Dillard sideline for the team’s preseason opener on Thursday night.
A 2019 first-round pick, Dillard sprained his knee during Tuesday’s practice and is listed as week-to-week.
