Andy Reid on Steve Smith's immediate future with the Eagles

+

"He had a small micro fracture, but all of his ligaments and cartilage was intact... the knee is very stable, and he’s had no swelling in his knee throughout the whole process. He’s been running, and he started running routes this past week. We’re just going to bring him back slowly and see what he can do. We’ll get him in a formal rehab with [head trainer] Rick [Burkholder] and we’ll just see exactly where he’s at. It could be three weeks….I don’t know. I have to see how he does here. We know he’s a fine football player, and we just need to get his leg where it needs to be." Here's proof positive of the philosophical difference in the way that New York's and Philadelphia's front offices operate. Philly is willing to invest/bet a few million dollars and a couple weeks of rehab on a proven, top tier NFL talent. The Giants tried to strong arm'em into a crappy deal.
