Not even the head coach was spared from a 2018 Philadelphia Eagles season filled with injuries. NFL insider Ian Rapoport reports Doug Pederson recently underwent foot surgery:

More context from Mike Garafolo:

I’m sure Pederson will jokingly refer to this as a “lower body injury” when he meets with reporters at the NFL Coaches Breakfast on Tuesday morning.

Based on Rapoport’s tweet, Pederson should be recovered by the time the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship begins in mid-July. Then again, maybe there’s reason to worry if that’ll truly be the case!

Pederson still has about two months before the Eagles begin their OTA practices in late May. We’ll see if he’s still limited in any capacity at that time but it sounds like he should be full go by the time training camp begins in late July.

In addition to Pederson addressing reporters at the NFL owners meetings this week, it’s also expected we’ll hear from Eagles CEO and Chairman Jeffrey Lurie along with executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman. Stay tuned to Bleeding Green Nation for complete coverage.

UPDATE: Photographic evidence.
