man.. i hate the Eagles.. but don't want anyone's career being over.... saw Kearse face while he was being carry out.. he did seem to be in a LOT of pain.. he's the soul of that Defense.. i really hope he'll be back.. he's an awsome player...

I'm not sure that I'd give Kearse that kind of credit, if anything I'd consider him overpaid since he's getting $66 million over 8 years to only get 20.5 sacks in 2 seasons + playoff time seems like he's underperforming. Besides even ignorant asswipe Shegals fans know that Trotter & Cheap-Shot Dawkins are the leaders of that defense.

 

BTW, Kearse out indefinatley with "Severe" knee injury. From what I saw I'm guessing a severe MCL/ACL sprain or tear of both ligaments.

He's out for the year.

 

 

Got this from the Eagles board.

 

 

Defensive end Jevon Kearse suffered a season-ending left knee injury in Sunday's loss to the Giants. The injury included sprains of multiple ligaments, including the medial collateral ligament, the lateral collateral ligament and the posterior cruciate ligament.

Treatment options for his knee will be determined in the near future.

 

The aftermath of Sunday's stunning overtime loss came Monday when head coach Andy Reid released an injury report which included Kearse, starting guard Shawn Andrews,

 

The news is a severe blow to a defensive line that has enjoyed great success with its pass rush. Kearse was credited with 2 1/2 sacks Sunday.

Ditto, he's done for the year:

PHILADELPHIA -- Jevon Kearse will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury the star defensive end sustained in Philadelphia's overtime loss to the Giants on Sunday.

Jevon Kearse gets helped off the field after hurting his knee in overtime.

Kearse's injury included sprains of multiple ligaments, including the medial collateral ligament, the lateral collateral ligament, and the posterior cruciate ligament.

 

The Eagles said that treatment options for his knee will be determined in the near future.

 

Kearse, who had 2½ sacks in the game, was injured when his leg knocked against Mike Patterson while the two brought down Eli Manning on New York's first possession of the extra period. Kearse reached for his left knee immediately after the play, was helped off the field and carted to the locker room.

 

 

 

Guard Shawn Andrews strained his shoulder, cornerback Rod Hood left with a heel injury, tight end L.J. Smith sprained his shoulder and running back Brian Westbrook has swelling in his knee.

 

Kearse is in his third season with the Eagles after signing a $66 million, eight-year contract in 2004. He had 7½ sacks in each of his first two seasons in Philadelphia after getting at least 9½ in four of his five years in Tennessee. He already had 3½ sacks in two games and seemed poised to have an outstanding season.

 

Kearse's injury should give former first-round pick Jerome McDougle an opportunity to play after he was inactive the first two games. Backup ends Trent Cole (four) and Juqua Thomas (two) have combined for six sacks while getting plenty of playing time in defensive coordinator Jim Johnson's eight-man line rotation.

 

The Eagles already have 13 sacks this season, including 12 from a revamped defensive line that had just 21½ of the team's 29 sacks last year.

 

A first-round pick by Tennessee in 1999, Kearse quickly established himself as one of the NFL's premier sack artists and earned the nickname: "The Freak."

 

Kearse had 36 sacks and went to the Pro Bowl in his first three seasons, twice earning All-Pro honors. But he had just 11½ sacks in his last two injury-plagued seasons with the Titans. He missed 12 games with a broken bone in his left foot in 2002, sprained the same foot the following year and missed nearly three games.

 

Kearse has missed three games with the Eagles, but two of those came in 2004 after Philadelphia had clinched first place in the conference and rested its regulars.
