Donovan McNabb has an abdominal strain that will likely need surgery, but the Philadelphia Eagles' medical staff said the quarterback can play if he can handle the pain. Trainer Rick Burkholder said rest will not fix the problem. While McNabb will experience discomfort, Burkholder said McNabb does not have to be sidelined now for the sports hernia. Philadelphia's Pro Bowl quarterback is expected to start Sunday against Kansas City. McNabb was tested last week for the sports hernia, a tear in the abdominal area, but coach Andy Reid called the injury an abdominal strain after the Eagles' win over Oakland.

Orioles outfield prospect Henry Urrutia will undergo sports hernia surgery on Tuesday and is expected to miss six to eight weeks. He will have the procedure in Philadelphia and it will be performed by Dr. William Meyers. Urrutia hasn't been in the Triple-A Norfolk lineup since April 27 and was hitting .220/.250/.293 with no homers and seven RBIs in 20 games for the Tides. The 27-year-old Urrutia had been dealing with the injury for more than two weeks and tried playing through it. That could partially explain Urrutia's slow start to the season after a strong spring training.

Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts had surgery in December to repair a sports hernia but says he is fully recovered and is already back doing baseball activities. The 35-year-old Roberts, who underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right hip in August, had been rehabbing since September in preparation to start the 2013 season. His rehab in Sarasota, Fla., had been going well, he said, but he began feeling some discomfort and inflammation in his abdomen area. On Dec. 19, he was examined by Dr. William Meyers, a sports hernia specialist in Philadelphia who has performed surgeries on the Orioles' Nick Markakis, Brian Matusz and Ryan Adams, among others.

Ravens cornerback Gary Baxter underwent abdominal hernia surgery yesterday at the University of Maryland Medical Center. Baxter's rehabilitation is expected to last four to eight weeks, which should make him available for the Ravens' first minicamp May 7-9. It was an injury Baxter played through during the final part of the season. Baxter finished third on the team with 106 tackles and intercepted three passes. The injury is the first major one for Baxter since his rookie year of 2001 when a knee problem forced him out of the better part of training camp and the first half of the season.

Running across the middle and catching the pass lofted by quarterback Brian St. Pierre was not new for Clarence Moore. Completing the task during practice, however, was. For the first time since undergoing an operation to repair a sports hernia in May, Moore practiced yesterday afternoon with the rest of his Ravens teammates at the team's training camp at McDaniel College. "It feels like it's about time," said Moore, who was activated off the physically-unable-to-perform list after missing 17 days of camp.

That chronic groin pain sometimes felt by athletes may be called a sports hernia, but it's not really a hernia at all, according to Dr. Katherine G. Lamond, assistant professor of surgery at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and a surgeon at the University of Maryland Medical Center. She said they are different from what's normally thought of as a hernia and sometimes tough to diagnose. But once doctors determine that this is the cause, there is effective treatment. What is the difference between a sports hernia and other types of hernias?

Hernias are a common ailment among Americans; more than 4 million people develop the painful condition. And although both men and women develop hernias, female patients may be harder to diagnose. Doctors and patients may not realize the abdominal pain a woman is feeling is because of a hernia. Dr. Hien Nguyen, assistant professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, said the pain can be mistaken for other conditions with similar symptoms, such as adhesions from prior surgery, endometriosis, fibroids and ovarian cysts.

Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette isn't ready to press the panic button on rightfielder Nick Markakis. Duquette said confidently Friday he expected Markakis -- who had surgery Thursday to repair a torn abdominal muscle -- to be ready to return by the beginning of Spring Training. "The Markakis surgery is a minor sugery," Duquette said. "He should be ready to go by spring training according to the doctors. From what I know about it, I'm not concerned. At his age and the way he keeps himself in shape, he should be ready to go in six weeks.

Harford Tech goalie J.D. Snyder certainly knows how to bounce back quickly from an injury. The senior underwent surgery for an umbilical hernia Sept. 12 and was medically cleared to get back on the soccer field the next day. He took part in the team's practice that day and played a few minutes on defense four days after the surgery in Harford Tech's victory. Snyder was back in goal six days post-surgery, helping the Cobras to a 2-2 tie with Patterson Mill. The procedure originally was supposed to have been done in late May but it got pushed back , and Snyder and coach Andy Bleichfeld thought the goalie might miss a few games.

About 600,000 hernia operations are performed each year in the United States, but sometimes people will try to ignore the symptoms -- discomfort, a lump appearing on their abdomen, even pain. Left untreated, hernias can become serious and even fatal conditions, says Dr. Sheldon Lerman, a general surgeon with St. Joseph Medical Center. Can you describe what a hernia is? A hernia is a defect in the abdominal wall. The contents of the abdominal cavity, usually either intra-abdominal fat or part of the intestine, bulge out through a defect in the abdominal wall.

Orioles first baseman-designated hitter Aubrey Huff is scheduled to undergo sports hernia surgery today that will prevent him from participating in baseball-related activities for six weeks, a club spokesman said. Huff should be ready about the time the Orioles' position players have their first spring training workout Feb. 19 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. Club officials said they knew that Huff had felt discomfort in his groin during offseason workouts but hoped he would be able to avoid the surgery, which will be performed by Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia.
