Weaver: 'Felt Horrible' As It Looked

Leonard Weaver swung past the NovaCare auditorium on crutches this afternoon, his left leg heavily braced. "It felt horrible, man, it felt awful," Weaver said the day after suffering what Eagles coach Andy Reid termed a "very severe" ACL tear on his only rushing attempt, against the Green Bay Packers. "I don't think I've ever felt anything like that."

Leonard Weaver swung past the NovaCare auditorium on crutches this afternoon, his left leg heavily braced. "It felt horrible, man, it felt awful," Weaver said the day after suffering what Eagles coach Andy Reid termed a "very severe" ACL tear on his only rushing attempt, against the Green Bay Packers. "I don't think I've ever felt anything like that."

"We'll see how things go from here," said Weaver, a Pro Bowl fullback last season. This season undoubtedly is over for him. From the tone of Reid's remarks, you have to wonder if there isn't a lot more in question. "We really don't know what's going on right now," Weaver said.

As Weaver spoke with reporters, Jason Davis and Owen Schmitt walked past him, on their way to the locker room. As Reid confirmed, the two free agent fullbacks will work out for the Eagles today. Davis has been with the Bears, Raiders and Jets since signing with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2006. Schmitt was a 2008 fifth-round pick of Seattle.

Weaver said he saw the replay of his injury this morning -- his leg bending backward as Packers linebacker Nick Barnett drove into him -- and "it looked pretty nasty, especially at the end part, where it kind of looked like it bent all the way back. All I remember thinking about is the pain, how awful it felt going down to the ground."
