Rick Sapp has his knee cleaned out

Some teams were cautious when it came to Clemson defensive end Ricky Sapp going into the draft because of a knee issue.

The hope is now that the knee will be better for him moving forward after the rookie had arthroscopic surgery on Tuesday. The Philadelphia Eagles converted Sapp, a fifth-round pick, to linebacker but then moved him back to end. He is on injured reserve. The surgery cleaned up his right knee and hopefully put him back on the right path.

Sapp suffered a torn ACL in 2008 and said that he was playing at 60 percent last season, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Per the report, the team labeled the surgery a success.
