Injury Update: Dawkins Has Ankle Strain

FOXBOROUGH, MA --Free safety Brian Dawkins left Friday night's game with what head coach Andy Reid described as an "ankle strain," an injury that will be updated once Dawkins has an MRI on Saturday.

Reid will provide an update on Sunday when the team returns to practice at the NovaCare Complex.

When asked after the 27-17 win over New England if he had an idea of the severity of the injury, Reid said, "I don't. We X-rayed it and there wasn't a break there, so we'll see what the MRI says."

Dawkins left the game in the first quarter after he was involved in a tangle down the field. He left the field, was examined by head athletic trainer Rick Burkholder and then was taken to the locker room on a cart.

His injury was the most notable of the night. Center Jamaal Jackson suffered a concussion and left the game in the first half.

Wide receiver Kevin Curtis underwent surgery to repair a sports hernia on Thursday, and Reid provided an update after Friday's game.

"I can't give you a time on that (Curtis' return) . I don't know that. When I do, I'll tell you," said Reid. "It wasn't the worst one we've seen and it wasn't the simplest one we've seen. They felt like they went in and did a pretty good job with it, so we'll see how he does here. These next couple of weeks will be pretty important and we might have a better idea after a few weeks here."
