Leonard Weaver out for season with 'very severe' ACL tear

Leonard Weaver has a "very severe" tear of his anterior cruciate ligament and will be out the rest of the season, Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid said this morning.

Weaver suffered damage to at least three ligaments as well as nerve damage. [Warning: the injury is gruesome.]


Center Jamaal Jackson also was lost for the season, tearing his triceps in the loss to the Green Bay Packers. Both he and Weaver will have surgery this week.

Quarterback Kevin Kolb and linebacker Stewart Bradley, who suffered concussions in the game, will be given daily and will see a doctor later in the week. They will not be allowed to practice until they are medically cleared, according to NFL rules.

Just awful. Saw the replay once and was nauseous. Immediately reminded me of Napolean McCallum's career ending injury. Best wishes to Leonard Weaver.
