Report: Winston Justice Has Successful Knee Surgery

Written By Bob Cunningham On Tuesday, February 22, 2011
According to Geoff Mosher of the Wilmington News Journal, Philadelphia Eagles right tackle Winston Justice had successful knee surgery Tuesday under the care of Dr. James Andrews in Alabama.


The surgery is being labeled a success because, according to reports, Andrews found nothing else wrong with Justice's knee and was not forced to perform microfracture surgery.

Microfracture surgery, as mentioned Monday, would have been career-threatening.

Instead, Justice is looking at just under a month of rehab time and should be back to full strength in short order with no ill effects on his 2011 season. The news also means the team can, and should, target much more pressing areas of need in April's draft.

I've gone on record numerous times saying I believe Justice is a Pro Bowl caliber right tackle, and I'm sticking by that. Since his knee should be 100 percent for next season, I fully expect Justice to get an invite to Hawaii the week before the Super Bowl.

I will, however, continue to hope that it's an invitation he has to turn down.

Ellis Hobbs told PhiladelphiaEagles.com that, contrary to the reports, he has not made a final decision on his career moving forward. That's to be expected in mid-February, but everyone expects Hobbs to come to the realization sooner or later that risking his health is not worth continuing his career.
