Eagles left guard Todd Herremans missed much of the team’s spring OTA’s with pain in his left foot, the same foot that required surgery last summer for a stress fracture.

He went to a specialist in Charlotte for a checkup to try to find the source of the pain and proclaimed himself fit when he returned. However, he won’t be back on the field until training camp begins next week.

“It will be fine,’’ Herremans told the Muskegon Chronicle in Michigan. “I had to get it looked at in the offseason. I had to make sure it was suitable and I can play on it. The doctor said everything is playable. I’ll be alright.’’

Obviously, developing some consistency on the offensive line will be a key to help new quarterback Kevin Kolb, especially early in the season.

“We shuffled all season on the offensive line,’’ Herremans said. “Right now, we’re all in place and that will be huge for us.’’

As for the change from Donovan McNabb to Kolb, “It’s bittersweet,’’ Herremans said. “I had a great time with Donovan and we became close friends. You prepare yourself for things like that when they happen. I like Kolb and what he brings to the table. He has a great work ethic.’’
