Shawn Andrews surgery today

Big Kid back under the knife.

Shawn Andrews surgery today


For all of the people who doubted whether or not Shawn Andrews really has a back injury, well, unless the surgeons are just going in for the hell of it, it can be said for sure that Andrews really has a back injury. He has been on Twitter for days, pointing to a second surgery, and Thursday apparently is the day.

Through all of his digital ramblings, one point has remained clear throughout Andrews' ordeal: that he is firm in the belief that Eagles head coach Andy Reid remains very much in his corner.

Now comes another reiteration, as they prepared to wheel him into the operating room:

BIG RED I'm dedicating a successful surgery to you coach.. Love u man! Thanks again for not giving up on me.. U da u da best coach u da best

Andrews does not sound like someone who believes his Eagles career is over.

About this blog
Rich Hofmann arrived at the Daily News in 1980 for a job whose status was officially designated as "full-time, temporary." A senior at Penn at the time, he was hired to fill in on the copy desk during a staff illness. The notion of him covering the Eagles or being a columnist did not exist in anyone's imagination. It was supposed to be six weeks and out, but he never left. It is only one of the reasons why so many people have concerns about him as a potential house guest. Rich has blogged the postseasons of the Flyers and Eagles. E-mail Rich at Reach Rich at
