Linebacker Jamar Chaney had surgery Tuesday to repair a herniated disc in his neck, the Eagles said.

Chaney suffered the injury in the final game of the season, according to the team. The Eagles initially said he had a concussion, while Chaney said he had a stinger.

Former Eagle Ellis Hobbs returned from a similar injury to play for the team in 2010, but his season and career were ended by another neck injury that year.

The surgery was done by Dr. Craig Brigham in Charlotte.
