Kevin Curtis Out At Least Two Months

Michael McGowanSenior Analyst IAugust 20, 2008

Kevin Curtis will undergo surgery Thursday to fix a sports hernia that he suffered in a preseason game last week. Curtis was the No. 1 option for the Eagles last year. The news was announced around noon today by Coach Andy Reid. Reid later stated that they would not be bringing in a replacement. 

The Birds will, however, be looking into a replacement for Curtis, because he will be out at least two months. Joe Horn and Anquan Boldin will both be options for the Eagles, depending on how serious they are about replacing him.

Javon Walker may also be close to getting cut and could be an option for the Eagles. The sports hernia could mean as little as two months of recovery time, or up to as many as three to four months.

The Eagles are very thin at the wide receiver position and must move quickly to replace Curtis, while division rival Dallas is also out there looking at the same three names.
