If you had to put money on which two Eagles would be the first to have surgery only after about a week of camp, surely you have put all your cash on these two. The Eagles announced today that Victor Abiamiri and Marlin Jackson both underwent surgery yesterday.
Abiamiri had his right achilles tendon repaired and was put on IR. Marlin Jackson underwent a procedure to have a sports hernia fixed.
Both players have been injured for almost their entire careers in Philadelphia and were longshots to be contributors this year anyhow. So their loss isn't a big deal, but it still is always a bummer to see guys' careers derailed or ended by injuries. To make it all the way to the NFL, only to have your body fail you has to be a tough pill to swallow.
