Report: Reddick To Undergo Surgery

Thumb Procedure Sidelines Pro Bowl EDGE For Preseason


A thumb injury Haason Reddick sustained Monday during the Eagles’ joint practice with the Cleveland Browns will force the Pro Bowl edge defender to undergo surgery and miss the rest of the preseason, per an NFL Media report.

Reddick, who last year recorded 16 sacks and five forced fumbles, should be ready for the Eagles’ season opener against the New England Patriots in Foxboro, Mass.

Reddick, who had missed the start of training camp because of a groin injury, hasn’t practiced much at camp and probably won’t be on the field again until the week of practice leading up to the opener.

GETTY IMAGES: Thumb surgery will sideline Haason Reddick, who reportedly will be ready for Week 1.

Reddick enters the second year of a three-year, $45 million contract he signed last offseason – a contract that became below market after Reddick made All Pro second team and was a candidate for Defensive Player of the Year, which Reddick acknowledged at the start of camp.

The strong-side linebacker/edge rusher is the most pivotal piece of an Eagles pass rush that last year logged 70 sacks, third-most in NFL history, and is expected to again be among the league’s best.
