Sports Hernia Attacks Another Eagle

An already thin receiving corps was dealt a major blow yesterday when it was revealed Kevin Curtis -- the Eagles No. 1 receiver in 2007 -- will undergo surgery to repair a sports hernia.

This is a similar injury to the one suffered in the past few years by teammates Donovan McNabb, L.J. Smith, and former teammate Dirk Johnson.

Curtis will most likely be sidelined for at least 4-6 weeks.

With No. 2 receiver Reggie Brown nursing a hamstring injury, the Eagles are left with rookie Desean Jackson, and the likes of Greg Lewis and Hank Baskett as their top wide receivers.

Further doom and gloom has spread over Iggleland after the proclamation by head coach Andy Reid concerning the wide receiver position, saying, "We'll be fine there."

Reid was asked if they would be looking to bring in a receiver now that Curtis will miss some significant time.

"No," he said.

So, when does hockey season start?
