Flyers forward Mike Knuble will undergo surgery tomorrow to repair a small tear in the labrum of his right shoulder.

David Cone had surgery yesterday to repair an aneurysm in his right shoulder, but neither the New York Yankees nor the doctors who performed the operation would predict when he'll pitch again.

"The surgery was performed without disturbing any muscles, nerves or veins in the region," a hospital spokesman said.

SAM HINKIE graduated summa cum laude from the University of Oklahoma. He was the president of the student business association and chairman of the dean's roundtable. He's a numbers guy at heart, earning an MBA from Stanford University. But yesterday, when the 76ers general manager and president of basketball operations spoke with the media during a conference call, he sounded as if he had done quite a bit of medical studying. Perhaps one gets quite knowledgeable about a subject when it's happening for the second year in a row. Hinkie spoke about Joel Embiid's bone-graft procedure, completed by a team of five carefully selected doctors, which took place Tuesday in New York at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

The countdown clock to Joel Embiid's prospective return to the 76ers has restarted, more than a month after the team announced that he would indeed need bone-graft surgery in his right foot. He had that surgery Tuesday, so the mystery that had surrounded the process ought to be quelled for at least a little while. The Sixers themselves, of course, fed the questions and speculation and mystery by remaining so quiet about Embiid and his situation. They released a statement July 11 that said because Embiid had suffered a setback in the healing of his right navicular bone, he would undergo the operation within seven and 10 days.

IN THE SHORT RUN, Eagles fans will be disappointed that they won't see their new No. 1 quarterback, Sam Bradford, in tomorrow's preseason opener against the Colts at Lincoln Financial Field. In the long run, the bigger news coming out of NovaCare yesterday probably was that tight end Zach Ertz has undergone a surgical procedure on a "core muscle," believed to be a partial groin tear, and has been ruled out of the entire preseason. With Bradford, it seems that Eagles coach Chip Kelly is just being cautious, wanting to get the QB with the twice-repaired left ACL another week of practice reps before sending him into live action.

The team expects Ertz to be ready by the start of the regular season on Sept. 14. A "core muscle injury" can often be characterized as a sports hernia, but Ertz had a partial tear of his groin muscle, according to NFL sources. "The biggest thing for us in this situation, to be honest with you, is that it's something that we wanted to get cleaned up," Eagles coach Chip Kelly said before the surgery was announced.
