Pro Bowl fullback Leonard Weaver suffered a severe ACL tear on his first carry of the season back in September.
The injury is so severe that Weaver’s chances of playing professional football again are “remote”, says a source.
Weaver didn’t just tear his ACL. He tore his PCL and suffered serious nerve damage as well.
He recently underwent his third major operation in the last week, in an attempt to help regain movement to his left foot.
Weaver has not been able to lift his foot since the inury over four months ago.
He has posted on his Twitter several times that he expects to play next season but I don’t see that happening.
On a positive note, he is working with James Andrews, the famous surgeon who helped Brett Favre, Drew Brees, Albert Pujols, and many more recover from their severe injuries.
It’s a long offseason for the Eagles, and let’s hope that Weaver recovers in time to play again.
I like Owen Schmitt, but I love Leonard Weaver.
