Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ellis Hobbs "very likely" will retire because of a neck injury that he suffered last week, a source with knowledge of the situation said Sunday.
Hobbs is expected to undergo surgery this coming week. Last season, Hobbs missed the final eight games with a neck injury that also required surgery.
Hobbs' agent, Kevin Omell, said Sunday that his client is only concentrating on making it through surgery. Hobbs then will meet with doctors and focus on his future. No decision has been made.
Hobbs was down for 11 minutes as players from both teams gathered around and the crowd fell silent.
