Eagles tight end James Casey underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on his right knee earlier this week and will miss the remainder of organized team activities. The recovery is usually only a few weeks, so Casey should be back in time for training camp this summer. 

On his Twitter account, Casey wrote, "I had a minor scope done on my right knee. I'll be back to full speed in two weeks. Better to get it taken care of now"

Casey signed a three-year, $14.6-million contract in March. He's expected to bring versatility to the Eagles offense, able to play tight end, fullback, and slot receiver. 

The Eagles are also missing tight end Zach Ertz, who cannot practice because of Stanford's academic calendar. The active tight ends on the roster are Brent Celek, Clay Harbor, Emil Igwenagu, Derek Carrier, and Wlll Shaw. Shaw was signed this week when the Eagles waived running back Miguel Maysonet.
