Eagles tight end James Casey underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee earlier this week and will miss the remainder of organized team activities. The recovery usually takes only a few weeks, so Casey should be back in time for training camp this summer.
"I had a minor scope done on my right knee," Casey, 28, wrote on his Twitter account. "I'll be back to full speed in two weeks. Better to get it taken care of now."
A four-year veteran, Casey signed a three-year, $14.6 million contract in March. The former Houston Texan is expected to provide versatility because he can play tight end, fullback, and slot receiver.
The Eagles are also missing tight end Zach Ertz, who cannot practice because of Stanford's academic calendar.
The active tight ends on the roster are Brent Celek, Clay Harbor, Emil Igwenagu, Derek Carrier, and Will Shaw. Shaw was signed this week when the Eagles waived running back Miguel Maysonet.
Harbor has been taking snaps at outside linebacker, potentially increasing his value to the team. Igwenagu was a fullback last season, but the Eagles are not expected to feature one this year and are developing him at tight end.
The Eagles will resume OTAs on Tuesday.
Quarterback Michael Vick was presented the key to Atlantic City by Mayor Lorenzo Langford in honor of Vick's community work after Sandy.
Vick visited an Atlantic City hurricane shelter and high school last fall. He returned Thursday to review the progress, tour the Boardwalk, and meet with high school students.
