Kelce Placed on Season Ending IR; Eagles Sign Vallos

Any hope that Jason Kelce might play again this season ended today as the Eagles placed him on season ending IR.

Kelce fully tore his MCL and partially tore his ACL in the Eagles 24-23 win over the Ravens on Sunday. The fact that the ACL was only partially torn gave some hope that Kelce could have returned later this season. Obviously that won't happen now.

Eagles head trainer Rick Burkholder said that when Kelce underwent a scope this morning, the knee was "a little more loose" then the team originally expected.

Kelce had this MCL repaired during the scope, and will now wait 3-4 weeks to get his ACL repaired. The Eagles are hopeful that Kelce will be ready to go when training camp starts next year.

With Kelce gone, the Eagles have signed center Steve Vallos. Vallos- who is 6-3, 310 lbs- spent time with the Eagles this year during training camp. Many thought he could have made the roster at the end of the camp. Dallas Reynolds will start this Sunday against Arizona, but Vallos- who has played in 40 games during his career- will be the back up.

Now that Kelce is officially out for the rest of the season, the Eagles have lost their starters from last season at the 2 most important positions on the line- center and left tackle.
