Nobody quite knows what will happen with Jason Kelce once the center undergoes tests for his injured knee later today, but one thing is for sure–it didn’t look good.
On a third quarter LeSean McCoy run Jason Kelce found himself throwing a block well down field. Moments later, he lay on the ground writhing in pain as he clutched his knee. It looked like the type of impact that typically would cost a player their season. While the Eagles announced the injury as a sprain after the game, Kelce will undergo an MRI today that could reveal extensive damage to the knee–damage that would cost the Eagles’ center his season.
According to Les Bowen The Philadelphia Daily News, Kelce said, “Right when I was putting my right foot down and planting, they were going headfirst into my knee. It didn’t feel good. Immediately, you knew it wasn’t good. I didn’t hear anything pop. That doesn’t necessarily mean anything. I think it all happened so fast, even if something did pop, I wouldn’t have heard it anyway.”
While it’s unfair to jump to conclusions at this point, it appears the Eagles, at the very least, will travel to Arizona with backup Dallas Reynolds at center.
