    Eagles' Curtis out 'a while'; to have sports hernia surgery

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    ESPN.com news services

    The Philadelphia Eagles will have to start the season without one of quarterback Donovan McNabb's top targets.


    Coach Andy Reid announced Wednesday that receiver Kevin Curtis will undergo sports hernia surgery that will definitely keep him out of the Eagles' season opener against the St. Louis Rams.

    Reid said Curtis is expected to return this season but will be out "for a while."

    Curtis was injured in last Thursday's preseason game against the Carolina Panthers.

    "He tried to work through it but wasn't able to function very well with it during practice, so we decided to go this direction," Reid told reporters.

    With Curtis out, Reid said the team would not pursue a trade for another receiver. Greg Lewis and Hank Baskett will split time in Curtis' absence opposite the team's other starting receiver -- Reggie Brown.

    Curtis, who signed with the Eagles last year as a free agent from the Rams, led the team in receiving in 2007 with 77 catches for 1,110 yards and six touchdowns.

    Indeed, Reggie Brfown isn't all that good and if Baskett or Lewis were anything special they wouldn't have had to go after Curtis.

    Double up on Westbrook and just contain McNabb. Let's see if any of their healthy receivers can play.

    Not to put a damper on anything, but McNabb has made a career out of throwing to "no name" receivers. They also have DeSean Jackson to throw to.


    We really need to show up that day, but I think we can take them.

    I would imagine the Eagles are looking at the Rams and saying pretty much the same thing....

    "Double up on Jackson (assuming he's ready) and contain Bulger. Let's see if any of their receivers not named Holt can play."
