Kelce will miss at least four to six weeks as the MCL ligament heals, Burkholder said. Kelce has the option of letting the ACL heal on his own, and if it does, then he might be able to play later in the season, according to Burkholder.
If Kelce opts for surgery on his ACL, he will be out for the season, the trainer said.
The Eagles came into the season without their starting left tackle, Jason Peters, and now must find a replacement in the middle of the line. Dallas Reynolds looms as the logical fill-in, but this is a staggering downgrade for the Eagles. Reynolds never appeared in an NFL game before this season, logging his time on the team's practice squad.
