The Philadelphia Eagles announced on Tuesday that center Jason Kelce is having surgery on his elbow. Their statement read as follows:
"After trying to work through discomfort in his elbow, it was agreed that a routine cleanout was in his best interest and would also allow for a speedy recovery."
More specifically, is it a scope of his elbow. According to a source, the belief is that Kelce has a good chance of returning in time for the Eagles' Week 1 matchup against the Lions in Detroit on September 11, which is 33 days away.
Kelce has started 122 straight regular season games, which is second-best in the NFL among all active players.
|Player||Consecutive games started|
|OT Jake Matthews, Falcons||126|
|C Jason Kelce, Eagles||122|
|OT Charles Leno, WFT||109|
|QB Tom Brady, Buccaneers||92|
Should he be unable to go Week 1, the Eagles would likely turn to rookie second-round center Cam Jurgens to start.
