Rueben Randle is working to familiarize himself with his new team, the Philadelphia Eagles, but he will have to wait until closer to the regular season to return to the field.
According to a report from Pro Football Talk, Randle is currently recovering from surgery to remove his gallbladder earlier this week.
There is no word on an official timetable for his return, though it may not come until training camp.
“We might not see Rueben Randle (gallbladder surgery) until Training Camp, but the word is that he was making good progress in the scheme so the Eagles will look forward to seeing him in pads,” the team’s official website wrote.
“Jordan Matthews and Nelson Agholor, along with Josh Huff, are the front-line receivers, and Chris Givens had a few really nice catches on Tuesday both on the sidelines (one on a perfect throw from Wentz) and over the middle.”
Randle joined the Eagles on a one-year deal this offseason.
Prior to his time in Philadelphia, Randle recorded 188 catches for 2,644 yards and 20 touchdowns during his four-year tenure with the division rival New York Giants.
