Todd Herremans undergoing "checkup" on foot

Philadelphia Eagles left guard Todd Herremans tweeted that he just flew to Charlotte, N.C., for a “checkup” on his foot that required surgery to repair a hairline fracture last August.

But the fact of the matter is Herremans has missed three OTA practices now and it’s at least concerning that he is experiencing issues that would require him to travel to see noted North Carolina foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson.

Herremans missed the first five games of last season, according to the Philadelphia Daily News, and the game of musical chairs the Eagles played on the line certainly affected the team in 2009. Max Jean-Gilles has been working in Herremans place. Hopefully, it is just a “checkup” and Herremans is back on the field soon. Otherwise, it could turn into an issue the team needs to monitor moving into training camp.
