Tight end Brent Celek underwent surgery to correct a sports hernia, the Eagles announced today.
Celek also had surgery to correct a torn labrum in his left hip. The team termed both procedures, which were performed Tuesday, as being successful. The sports hernia procedure was performed by William Meyers at Thomas Jefferson; the hip operation by John Salvo of the Rothman Institute.
Celek's playing status was never in serious jeopardy due to injury during the season, at least publicy it wasn't.
Celek said, via text message, that the injuries were bothering him for awhile, but that he "was never going to miss a game." He said he received treatment for the injuries and was initially on the injury report, but didn't have it completely checked out until after the season.
