Philadelphia Eagles defensive end Derek Barnett underwent surgery for a hernia following the end of last season, according to a published report.

With an estimated six-week timetable for recovery, Barnett should be at or close to full health, PhillyVoice.com reported, citing a source.

Barnett appeared in 15 regular-season games with the Eagles, who was selected with their first-round pick (No. 14 overall) in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-3, 260-pound Barnett registered five sacks despite not starting a game and also came up big during Philadelphia’s run to its Super Bowl championship.

Barnett had a strip-sack of Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum at a pivotal moment in the NFC title game and also recovered by a fumble by New England quarterback Tom Brady in the Super Bowl.
