Philadelphia Eagles rookie CB/KR Jorrick Calvin underwent microdisectomy surgery on his lower back on Jan. 3 by Dr. Alex Vaccaro of the Rothman Institute at Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia. Calvin was placed on injured reserve on Dec. 23.
Rookie DT Jeff Owens underwent surgery to repair his left knee patella tendon as well as microfracture surgery on January 5 by Dr. James Andrews in Birmingham, AL. Owens will also have surgery to repair his ACL at a later date. Because of the seriousness and the timing of both surgeries, it’s unlikely Owens will be able to play next season. Owens was placed on IR on Dec. 29.
