Justice to have knee surgery

Eagles right tackle Winston Justice will have knee surgery Tuesday, the Eagles confirmed. A team spokesman called the surgery a "clean out." Renowned sports surgeon Dr. James Andrews will perform the procedure in Alabama.

The Wilmington News Journal, citing an unidentified team source, said there is a fear that Justice could need microfracture surgery, which would put his 2011 season in doubt, but the paper also reported that he might need nothing more than arthroscopic surgery. The Eagles spokesman said reports on any further procedures are "speculatory," which downplays the idea that Justice could be facing a more serious problem, but doesn't exactly deny it.

Justice hurt his left knee against the Texans Dec. 2 and struggled down the stretch of the season. He was benched toward the end of the Eagles' wild card loss to the Packers.

At the time he was hurt, Justice wrote in the Daily News that an MRI showed no structural damage.

Urban Out

Eagles assistant offensive coordinator James Urban is moving to Cincinnati, where he will coach the Bengals' wide receivers. Urban was the Eagles quarterbacks coach for the past two years before his recent move to a new job that the team pitched as a way to allow him to work with more positions. Doug Pederson had previously been named the Eagles new quarterbacks coach.

Apologies for the lateness of this blog post. I was in a company meeting on how to use new technology to help us adapt to the digital age. Irony like that plays in any era.
