Veteran defensive tackle Montae Reagor underwent surgery on his left knee Monday morning. The arthroscopic clean-out was performed by Dr. Michael Ciccotti of the Rothman Institute in Philadelphia. No timetable has been set for Reagor's return to the practice field.
"It seemed to go well, so we'll see how he does here over the next few days," head coach Andy Reid said.
Almost two years removed from his near-fatal auto accident when he was a member of the Colts, Reagor has hopes of contributing to the team's fortunes in 2008 as an inside pass rusher.
Signed as an unrestricted free agent in 2007, Reagor recorded a sack last season. But he never got into the flow all season - he missed time in both the spring camps and training camp. He dressed for seven games and recorded just two tackles along with the sack.
Still, his lack of production didn't stop his teammates from voting him the recipient of the Ed Block Courage Award for 2007. Each year, the Ed Block Courage Award honors those National Football League players who exemplify commitment to the principles of sportsmanship and courage. They are selected in a vote by their teammates for team effort as well as individual performance.
