Eagles Continue Reshaping Medical Department
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - It's hard to get a beat on what's going on with the Eagles’ medical staff but significant change at the top continued on Friday when it was revealed that the Super Bowl champs are parting ways with their top two docs, orthopedist Peter DeLuca and internist Gary Dorshimer.
Both DeLuca and Dorshimer had worked with the Eagles for nearly two decades and remain team doctors with the Flyers.
The move away from the doctors came just days after Philadelphia brought in a new head athletic trainer in Jerome Reid, who had been working with the Tennessee Titans.
Former head trainer Chris Peduzzi resigned shortly after the Super Bowl. Joe O’Pella, now the associate head athletic trainer, was holding down the fort between the Peduzzi and Reid eras.
The Eagles, of course, have a significant number of veteran players rehabbing after surgeries, most notably quarterback Carson Wentz, receiver Alshon Jeffery, left tackle Jason Peters, defensive end Brandon Graham, defensive tackle Tim Jernigan, linebacker Jordan Hicks and safety Chris Maragos.
