Conflicting reports emerge regarding Ellis Hobbs’ future

During ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown, Adam Schefter reported that Eagles cornerback Ellis Hobbs will undergo neck surgery and (citing team sources) that Hobbs likely will retire.

Hobbs’ agent says otherwise, sort of.

Per Tim McManus of, Kevin Omell says that no decisions have been made about Hobbs’ future.

“I’m not sure where those rumors are coming from,” Omell said in reference to the notion that Hobbs is likely to retire.  “When you have an injury like that and two injuries in a year pretty much, it’s obviously something you think about.  But Ellis is a competitive guy and we’re taking a wait-and-see approach. There has really been no decision made.”

Hobbs suffered the injury last Sunday night while returning a kickoff during a 27-17 win over the Giants.  He was on the field for more than 10 minutes before being taken off on a stretcher and flashing a thumbs-up to the crowd.

    So it sounds like someone forgot to tell Ellis Hobs that he decided to retire????

    He suffered the injury “last night night”? Does that mean Friday night (two nights ago)? Did these teams play a game that wasn’t televised?

    Where exactly is the conflict here?

    Schefter says it’s “likely” and the agent says no decision has been made. No mutual exclusivity there.

    I know a lot of Patriots fans hated Hobbs when he was in NE, but he was a decent player and a hard worker. He got burned a lot, but made some plays as well. For some reason, I always liked him. I was a little bummed when BB traded him. NE’s return game suffered without him too.

    Its a shame he has been injured so much lately. Best of luck to you, Ellis. Get well soon, I wish you success, except against NE.
