Report: Jason Kelce May Have A Torn ACL

The Eagles’ offensive line may have suffered a big blow on Sunday. Center Jason Kelce went down in the second half and didn’t return to the game. Howard Eskin of 94 WIP and Fox 29 reported this morning via Twitter that the second-year center will have an MRI this morning, and that the fear is that he’s suffered a torn ACL and is likely lost for the season.

A blow like this really puts a damper on what was a great win for this football team. Suddenly Dallas Reynolds could be this team’s starting center for the rest of the season. Reynolds played well in relief of Kelce, but we haven’t seen nearly enough of him to be confident in his ability.

If Kelce is indeed lost for the season, the team will need to sign another lineman to fill his roster spot. There aren’t a lot of great options in free agency at this point in the year but one option could be former starter Jamaal Jackson, who was released at the start of free agency and hasn’t caught on with another team yet. Although he doesn’t fit with Howard Mudd’s scheme, he’s been a smart, capable center in his career.

You think Vick is running for his life now? He’ll be lucky to last another 2-3 games, now!

I hate to see a player get injured due to dirty play. The shot Kelce took was a dirty play in line with all the dirt the Ravens were slinging all game long. Kelce’s career could be severly damaged because of this. I hope the Raven’s are fined and I’m glad they loss in the way they did…

I truly hope that Kelce’s injury is not as serious as we are being lead to believe, for his sake and this team’s sake.

The injury too Kelce was not cheap. It was just football. Vick made Ed Reed miss and he went right into his knee. I hope this isn’t a torn ACL either. If it is I’m sure he will be back at the beginning of next season with all the time he will have to recover. Much more concerned about Peters who I think may be done playing football. The only thing that worries me more than ACLs is Achilles injury, especially with Oline. They don’t exactly need their knees to cut on while running full speed like Rbs/WRS. The NE guard I think played the entire last season on a torn ACL.

If Andy Reid is here next year, I would definitely take the over in him drafting Oline.

I disagree. Ed Reed was diving low all day at players knees and that’s dirty.

He is a dirty SOB, & was made to look like a douche-bag, when Celek vaulted over his cheap shot @$$! I dropped a pretzel & a full beer, on the row in front of me, on that play. LMFBO!!!!

There are other Centers around (Steven Vallos took snaps, Vandervelde took snaps and I believe are on other Teams Practice Squads who could be scooped up)
Jamall Jackson hasn’t played competitive football in almost 3 Seasons now and would not be under consideration at this point.. He’s days are over as are A Gurode and others.. It’s a young man’s Sport..

Dallas did alright for a guy ‘playing out of position’ I mean Andy always thinking he can outsmart everyone – he put a college OT in at center against one of the best D Line and D’s int he league and luckily we escaped with a win (did the sarcasm come out in that post enough?)

Eagles have another center on the practice sqaud – guy from Stanford.. Beeler

Reynolds will be fine –

JAmal Jackson – really?? That’s funny.

not a big Kelce fan anyway, NOT A STARTING CALIBER NFL CENTER. Kelce was starting because 1 person liked him. couldn’t make the o-line calls last yr ( an added resp for the QB ) and he can’t get movement against the d-line in short yardage. Kelce is your classic 5th rd overachiever. Jackson was a decent caliber center ( that can get movement ) and is capable of making the o-line calls. Jackson should have never lost his job last yr in the first place as Kelce didn’t exactly set the world on fire in Camp last yr

Not happening Denny. You lost on this one. Dude is done, & isn’t a Mudd type guy, & looks to be up to 350-375 lbs. I saw him & Peters recently, at a local drinking establishment, & they both look like hippo’s. Peters already looks like he’s close to 400 lb’s. He ain’t coming back either.

First off numb-nuts, I don’t lie! Secondly when I saw them the week before the season started, they both where in a local bar restaurant, in which Peters frequents alot. So you don’t know WTF you are talking about. Also, I didn’t say both of them were drinking. So mind your F^#@ing business, because you don’t know WTF you are talking about. Also I know JJ, because he lived for years in the same apartment complex, that my Sister in law did. So again. mind your own bees-wax!

One thing that popped out when I looked back at the games is Mathis being called for holding or offsides almost every possession.

What’s up with that?

The Cardinals. Front 7 is very strong with Dockett, Campell and LB Washington Long with a ball-hawking Secondary and TD’s will be hArd to come by for both Offenses. I expect a low scoring game like 20-17 with Special Teams, field position and the FG Kickers to determine the winner

Fraudman– here we go again. Listen to this guy, hes starting it again, giving all this praise to the other team and will pick against the birds as he does each week. He does this every single week. Such a fraud. 20-17 Cards right fraudman? Why not a blow out win like you predicted last week saying the ravens would destroy the eagles..

Eagles did sign C/G Vallos to replace Kelce who was placed on IR aa
As I expected. Vallos will be. Serviceable back-up to Reynolds and can play Guard Also and was in camp all Summer so he knows Mudd’s scheme

haveacigar,

please excuse me but I will be rolling with your “fraudman” name because that’s exactly what the dude is.

Kevin Kolb ready to “roll” the eagles?? Please!! You truly are a fraud. Pat yourself on the back even when you were 100% wrong, make bogus predictions that never come to pass and ALWAYS picks againts the Eagles. Are you really an Eagles fan??? If you are, could have fooled me. 31-13 Ravens right??? HAHA!! how much are we going to lose by this week?? Fraudman for sure!

Fraudman-Paulman calls for Cardinals 20 – Eagles 16 Victory
The Difference is a INT Returned for a TD by the Cardinals Secondary and
some big Punt Returns by Cardinals S Howling giving the Cards and Kolb some short fields to work with… Why does Special Teams Coach Bobby April still have a Job with the Eagles..Can anyone honestly say that their Return Games on Kick-offs and Punts are any better.. take out some great individual D-Jax Returns over the last couple of Seasons and what has Bobby April brought to this Franchise .. He is one of the Top Paid ST Coaches in the NFL as well.. I will name Bobby April the “Fraudman I” since he;’s getting a big check from the Eagles and I will be “Fraudman II” since Garry Cobb has cut my Salary..

On to the positive prediction….

Eagles win this game in convincing fashion…
McCoy has a big day on the ground
Eagles CB’s play a solid game on the AZ WR’s. DRC plays big against his old team. Returning a INT to the house!
Eagles D Line will get after the QB all day long!
The defense will get some early turnovers in this game giving the Eagles good field position.
Vick’s decision making will be much better, Eagles offense will not commit a turnover!
Celek will continue to produce at a high level as well as DJAX.
The Eagles will prove to be too much for the Cards on both sides of the ball!

don’t see this as an easy one for the eagles, cardinals defense bangs, gets lots of pressure up front, eagles may be looking past the cardinals to the giants, 3-0 eagles?, probably more likely than 3-0 cardinals, but no realtalk, this will not be an easy game

@Paulman, I can swear you owe me $10 from the prediction you made last week…..

@Jakedog – no one said this will be an easy game…convincing fashion to me, means, Eagles will win the time of possession of the ball, move that ball as they have done thus far this season, win by 10plus points, while the defense dominates…does not mean it will be easy…no game is easy!

Jon hart named him fraud man so he gets the credit. As for my man crush on flacco, guilty as charged… I am a former blue hen (about 25 years sooner) have a good friend who was on the staff the day flacco came in to ‘tryout’ says he threw two passes outside the hash to the far numbers… And was offered a scolqrship, he called me and couldnt stop talking bout those two passes. So yeah I’m guilty.
I also have stated numerous times that Vick will give us numerous spectacular plays but his ball security will eventually rip our hearts out.
That said he outplayed my guy on sunday

One thing to keep in mind is the center position is a position that can be easily replaced. Kelce is talented, but can be replaced and Dallas Reynolds will be solid for us there. Now a good Tackle is hard to come by as we can see with Jason Peters going down, now we ll have DBell starting there this sunday, our 2nd starter since Peters. So I wouldnt be all that concerned over the center position, its a Tackle or Guard I worry about if they were lost to injury.
