USA have been dealt a major blow ahead of the Rugby World Cup with the loss of Scott LaValla.
The experienced second row is out with a fractured elbow and will be sorely missed in the Eagles' pack.
LaValla recently won the Top 14 title with his club Stade Français.
"Scott has been a fantastic Eagle and has done so much to raise the level of play of the Eagles program," head coach Mike Tolkin told USARugby.org.
"He has represented the national team with pride and distinction from age-grade through to the senior level.
"All of the players and staff feel for Scott, and our hearts go out to him during this unfortunate turn of events."
