There’s a growing concern that the left foot of starting left guard Todd Herremans could develop into a real problem for the Eagles.¬† He had surgery on the foot last August and missed five games of the season because of it.
Herremans wasn’t at practice today because of soreness in the foot.¬† Instead he was in Charlotte, North Carolina having his football examined by foot specialist Dr. Bob Andrews.
Veteran Max Jean-Gilles took his place and will continue to play there until Herremans is able to get back in action.¬† Unfortunately Jean-Gilles isn’t the player that Herremans is, and it could mean problems along the offensive line.
The good thing about Herremans’ injury is that the Birds have plenty of time until the training camp.
In another injury situation, middle linebacker Stewart Bradley didn’t practice today because he had tweaked his calf muscle yesterday at practice.¬† He says it’s not serious and expects to be back on the field very soon.
