Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett (shoulder) is having season-ending shoulder surgery on Tuesday, according to a source. The former first-round pick had 17 tackles and 2.5 sacks on the season, so his loss is a blow to the Eagles defensive line moving forward. However, their defense/special teams will remain a strong play in Week 8 against a Jaguars offense that has been awful behind quarterback Blake Bortles in the absence of running back Leonard Fournette (hamstring).
Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett (hernia) was able to participate fully in organized team activities. He had a sports hernia operation after the Super Bowl but is fully recovered and had no issues participating fully in voluntary OTA practices. He was a first-round pick last year and is expected to play an even bigger role this season. Last season, he graded out as the No. 37 4-3 defensive end, according to Pro Football Focus.
Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett underwent sports hernia surgery right after the Super Bowl. He's expected to be at 100 percent and will be completely ready to go for Week 1. Barnett had 21 tackles, five sacks, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries his rookie year. He'll likely get more work this coming season as a member of a very strong defensive front.
