Brent Celek injury: Eagles tight end out with concussion

Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE

Eagles TE Brent Celek could see his streak of consecutive starts end after leaving the team's game against the Buccaneers on Sunday with a concussion.

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek left the team's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday after suffering an apparent concussion. Celek will not return, per the Eagles Insider Twitter account.

Celek sustained the head injury on the Eagles' first play from scrimmage. He caught a 1-yard pass from Eagles quarterback Nick Foles and was brought down by Leonard Johnson and Lavonte David. Celek appeared to take a shot to the back of the head on the play.

With the injury, Celek's streak of 93 consecutive starts could be in jeopardy. The 27-year-old out of Cincinnati has 50 catches for 601 yards and a touchdown in 2012. Over the course of his 6-year career, Celek has gained more than 3,300 yards through the air and has 20 touchdown receptions.

Clay Harbor, the Eagles' only other tight end on the roster, replaced Celek following the injury. Harbor, a third-year pro, has 38 career receptions and three touchdowns.
