Saints LS Jon Dorenbos suffers aortic aneurysm

A slow but determined return to football

Former Philadelphia Eagles long-snapper Jon Dorenbos has been hospitalized in preparation for surgery on an aortic aneurysm.

The Saints have placed Dorenbos on their non-football injury list along with defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who also suffers from a lingering heart condition. After being beat out in training camp by Rick Lovato for the snapping job, the Eagles traded him to New Orleans for a seventh-round pick in 2019.

The heart condition will keep him from playing this year.

The 31-year-old Spaniard is 22-3 in Grand Slam semi-finals, winning the last 14 in which he has appeared. It is a first-ever Grand Slam semifinal for both men in the second match on Arthur Ashe .

"Magic saved my life", Dorenbos said in a September episode, adding, "It helped me find myself".

Dorenbos spent his first two seasons with the Bills and then 2005 and part of 2006 with the Titans before joining the Eagles late in the 2006 season.

Dorenbos was a fan favorite in Philadelphia, where he spent 11 of his 15 National Football League seasons.

"It's a pretty serious condition that will require surgery", the aforementioned Payton said after the aortic aneurysm was uncovered by Saints doctor John Amoss. In order to avoid that situation, the Eagles went with a younger, cheaper option and sent Dorenbos to the Saints. His 162 regular-season appearances for Philadelphia are the sixth most in franchise history.

On Friday, Lurie said in a statement, "Jon Dorenbos is like family to me and the Eagles".

The Saints are working out a group of long snappers on Friday to play in Monday's game against the Vikings. "We didn't know what was going on and he didn't give us all the details, but it was scary for sure".
