That dreaded sports hernia has struck again... this time it hit Kevin Curtis. Andy Reid announced today that Curtis will have surgery tomorrow and will be back this year, but there is no timetable. Andy Reid would only say he'd be out "for a while." In all likelihood, we're probably looking at least 5-6 weeks before Curtis could maybe be back.
Looking at the schedule and projecting where he might come back, week 8 at home against Atlanta jumps out at me as a possible return date. It's after a bye and allows him an extra week or week two to heal. Either way, it's certain that we'll face tough games with Dallas, Pittsburgh, at Chicago, and Washington without the guy who was our best WR last year.
When you combine Curtis' injury with the nagging hamstring strain Reggie Brown has been sidelined with... the WR corps is looking very thin. At the moment, your starting WRs this Friday will likely be rookie Desean Jackson and Greg Lewis. Andy said at his press conference he plans on going into the season with the WR corps he has now, although you have to think that behind the scenes they are assessing their options.
