Jamar Chaney Injury Update: LB Out For Mini Camp, Expected Back For Training Camp

Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Jamar Chaney will miss the team's mini camp, head coach Andy Reid said Monday, but is expected back on the field in time for training camp.

Chaney underwent surgery in January to repair a herniated disk he suffered during Philadelphia's regular season finale. The 25-year old is an important part of Philadelphia's defense, registering 92 tackles, three interceptions and one sack during the 2011 season.

With Chaney out for a while longer, rookie linebacker Mychal Kendricks might take a step closer to securing a starting spot. The second-round pick had 98 tackles and three sacks for the California Golden Bears last year as a senior. The biggest knock on Kendricks is his size (he's just 5-11), but he has impressed during the team's rookie mini camp.
