The Philadelphia Eagles have seen the last of Todd Herremans this season.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Tuesday that Herremans will undergo surgery to repair a torn biceps in his left arm, according to an NFL source. The starting guard was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Wednesday.

Herremans injured the arm in Week 8 against the Arizona Cardinals. He wore a brace during Sunday's win over the Houston Texans but was clearly limited by the injury. Herremans left the game prematurely with an ankle issue.

Herremans, 32, has spent his entire career with the Eagles since being selected in the fourth round of the 2005 draft. He is ranked 70th out of 78 qualifying guards on ProFootballFocus.com.

As Herremans exits the picture, Evan Mathis steps in. Mathis has been activated from the short-term injured reserve list and will take over at left guard. Matt Tobin, who had been filling in for Mathis, will slide over to right guard.
