Brent Celek has shoulder surgery

Celek had a torn labrum repaired.
Eagles tight end Brent Celek underwent successful surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder.

No timetable has been set for Celek's recovery. Whether he will be able to participate in the team's first minicamp, which is in May, is uncertain.

The procedure was performed at Methodist Hospital in Philadelphia by team physicians Dr. Peter Deluca and Dr. Paul Marchetto.

If we do let LJ Smith walk, I certainly hope it's not because we think Brent Celek is ready to be a top TE next year... I like Celek, but putting your faith in him so early isn't the move of a team in "win now" mode. Especially after TE was such a weakness in 2007.
