Spring Practice is just around the corner, and two Eagles will not be practicing. According to EagleAction's Eric Hoffses it's two players that probably are not all that surprising:
Incase you missed my report yesterday, WR Bobby Swigert and RB Tahj Kimble will miss spring practice recovering from surgery #bceagles— ERIC HOFFSES (@EAHoffses) February 19, 2013
Swigert battled injuries for large chunks of last season after injuring his knee in summer practices. He missed the first three games of the season and returned to action against Clemson. He battled through a knee injury for seven games before missing the final two games finishing the season with 23 catches for 268 yards and one touchdown . He had off season knee surgery, and will hopefully be ready for summer practices.
Tahj Kimble started the 2012 season off as a reliable weapon rushing 17 times in the first three games for 70 yards, and was an effective weapon through the air highlighted by 130 receiving yards against Miami. But a leg injury suffered in Week 3 knocked him out for the remainder of the season. David Dudeck eventually played the role Kimble was meant to play. Kimble had surgery on his leg this offseason, and should be ready for the 2013 campaign.
It may be snowing out, but spring football is almost here.
