Philly's banged-up offensive line is down another body.
The team isn't certain how long the fourth-year blocker will be sidelined, but don't expect him back any time soon. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Kelce's recovery is likely to take six weeks, per a source informed of the situation.
Kelce's surgery also forces the Eagles to make a roster decision, since they've already used their injured reserve-designated to return spot. Philadelphia will either have to keep Kelce on the roster, or place him on IR.
In the meantime, look for the Eagles to sign one or more blockers to bolster a battered line that's been stripped to the bone over the past three weeks.
Here's the rest of the latest injury news we are following:
»The injury bug bit Carolina's backfield on Sunday, taking out both fullback Mike Tolbert and running back DeAngelo Williams. Tolbert has a hairline fracture in his knee, but isn't expected to miss much time beyond Sunday's game against the Ravens, during which he will sit out. Coach Ron Riverais confident he'll have Williams back for Sunday.
