Ricky Sapp has knee surgery


Eagles rookie defensive end Ricky Sapp had arthroscopic knee surgery to debride his right knee, the team said Tuesday.

The procedure, essentially to clean out any loose debris and fragments, was described as a success.

Sapp, a fifth round draft pick, was placed on the injured reserve Aug. 31. He came to the Eagles with a history of recent knee problems and did not make much of an impression in training camp. Sapp tore his right anterior cruciate knee ligament as a junior in college and has said he only felt at "60 percent" during his senior year at Clemson.

The team tried him at both linebacker and defensive end, but he had to sit out some of camp with knee pain.

The knee procedure was performed by team physician Peter DeLuca of the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia.
