Long-Term Outlook for Kearse Promising After Surgery
Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Jevon Kearse underwent knee surgery Thursday to have the injuries that ended his season repaired.
Surgeon John Uribe repaired cartilage damage and placed Kearse's left leg in a cast because of a broken tibia. Uribe determined that the ligament damage in Kearse's knee did not have to be repaired surgically and would heal on its own. Kearse faces 12 to 16 weeks of rehabilitation but has been told that his injuries were not career-threatening and he should be healed in time to participate in offseason practices.
Kearse was injured in the Eagles' second game of the season when he accidentally collided with defensive tackle Mike Patterson while they combined on a sack of New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning.
