Jamar Chaney Status: Eagles LB Plans On Being Ready For Minicamp

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Jamar Chaney was the only linebacker on the team to start all 16 games last season. He was also the only one who had offseason surgery for a herniated disc in his neck.

Chaney says he didn't need the surgery but went through with it for prohibitive reasons.

"I didn't have to have (the surgery)," Chaney assured Eagles fans when he joined PhiladelphiaEagles.com in the studio. "It was just something I wanted to have to prevent it from happening again. They fused my neck. It's coming along pretty good now. By the end of this month, maybe next month, I should be back to myself 100 percent. I feel pretty good now, working out, squatting, bench pressing, doing the normal stuff I would be doing in the offseason.

"I think I made the right decision to have the surgery because as long as we have this off time, it's worth it. As long as I was going to be back for when we come back for workouts and right before we go to minicamps and OTAs and all that, I wanted to participate in all of that. They told me the timetable would be mid-March so I went ahead and did it." (via Philadelphia Eagles)

Chaney had 92 tackles (67 solo), one sack and three interceptions last season. Because of last season's work stoppage, this offseason will be the first full one for Chaney, who was drafted in 2010 out of Mississippi State.
