McDougle Out Indefinitely

McDougle Out Indefinitely

Has anything gone right for the Eagles lately?  Not much chatter around the world of the Birds after a whooping last week in Big D.  The first real noteworthy story since T.O. saying he doesn't care about what the fans think is news of Jerome McDougle hitting a bigtime road block:

Just as the Eagles were anticipating the return of defensive end Jerome McDougle to the practice field came news of a serious setback to the young man: McDougle underwent surgery on Monday and will remain out of action indefinitely.

The Eagles Monday announced that McDougle underwent emergency surgery on Monday afternoon to correct an internal hernia due to adhesions and scar tissue from his previous surgery following his gunshot wound in July.

Does it scare anyone else that McDougle is getting surgery due to some sort of hernia, be it a "sports hernia" or a gunshot hernia.  Isn't this the same type of injury we are expecting Donovan to lead us to the promise land with?

To make matters even worse for the Eagles, they have the NFL's most dominant player coming to town next weekend.
