OT Winston Justice May Need Microfracture Surgery

Eagles right tackle Winston Justice is scheduled to undergo surgery on his left knee on Tuesday, Geoff Mosher of The News Journal reports. Citing a team source, Mosher adds that Justice may require microfracture surgery, which could sideline him for the 2011 season.

Justice’s surgery will be performed by Dr. James Andrews, who will make the determination for whether microfracture surgery is required. Microfracture surgery involves the surgeon using an awl to make small holes in the bone near damaged cartilage. These holes release cells from the bone which form new cartilage.
