Herremans surgery is worst break

Todd Herremans underwent surgery Friday for a stress fracture on his left foot according to the Eagles.

The repairs were made by Dr. Steven Raikan of the Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson Hospital.

Herremans is expected to miss at least two regular season games. One of just three established veterans on the offensive line, Herremans is the last guy the Eagles need hurt right now on a unit already a couple of quarts short. Lingering injuries to tackles Shawn Andrews and Jason Peters, and the slow rehab of guard Stacy Andrews have kept the guys from developing any chemistry and it's showed in the preseason.

Though Reid is hopeful Shawn Andrews (back) will get back to work, he doesn't seem to have big expectations.
