Knee Injury Sidelines Jevon Kearse
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. 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. (Continue)
Ouch!! I know he must be frustrated, mad, all of the above. The season just started and now he has to sit out.
