Justice Undergoes Successful Surgery

The Eagles announced that offensive lineman Winston Justice underwent successful debridement (clean out) surgery on his left knee today.

The surgery was performed by noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews. Justice is expected to make a full recovery for the 2011 season. Justice, who told PhiladelphiaEagles.com that he was hampered by the knee at the end of the season, has started 29 games for the Eagles over the past two seasons.

Justice initially injured the knee in the fourth quarter of the win over Houston. After the game, it was determined that Justice hyperextended the knee. Justice missed the following two contests against Dallas and New York. He returned for the Week 16 game against Minnesota, but his practice time was limited the remainder of the season.

A second-round pick in 2006, Justice was the Eagles' Man of the Year for his community work in 2010.
