Eagles | No Surgery for Tapeh

Citing the Philadelphia Inquirer, reports Philadelphia Eagles FB Thomas Tapeh (hip) will not need surgery to repair a dislocated and fractured hip. The team dispelled concern that Tapeh's career was in jeopardy due to the devastating injury. "We had a trauma surgeon look at him here ... and she agreed that he is really not in that group that is in danger of having a Bo Jackson injury," team trainer Rick Burkholder said. Tapeh will use crutches for 12 weeks and will have to avoid putting pressure on his right leg during his rehabilitation.
