Injury Update: Key Eagles Hurting After Big Win

Presswire

The Eagles big 24-23 victory over the Ravens today did not come without a price- this team will be limping into Arizona next week.

Jason Kelce, Jeremy Maclin and King Dunlap all had to go into the locker room today with injuries. Here is an update on each:

Jason Kelce: Kelce's injury is believed to be the most serious of the 3, and when he spoke after the game, he tried to not increase speculation that his injury is very serious. "It doesn't hurt that much right now," said Kelce, "but it doesn't feel like I could go out and play a game today." Fans had to be concerned as Kelce rolled around on the ground in pain, but Kelce said that was more out of fear of what might be wrong than from actual paid. With Kelce out, Dallas Reynolds made his NFL debut as he took over as center. Center is a key position on the Eagles offensive line, as they are responsible for making a good amount of calls at the line.

Reid said after the game that right now Kelce has a knee sprain, but an MRI to be done on Monday will tell the team more. Reid did not seem optimistic about Kelce, saying "I can't tell you that one doesn't look real good." Speaking to Kelce in the locker room, it did not seem to be season ending, but it'd be a shock if he is in uniform next week.

Jeremy Maclin: Maclin was questionable coming into the game with a hip pointer, and he re-injured it during the game. Maclin was carted off the field in obvious pain, but did return. Maclin admitted after the game that he was hurting pretty bad. With the Eagles picking up Mardy Gilyard this week, the Eagles would be wise to maybe rest Maclin for a week. It's only 2 games into a long season, and the Eagles are going to need him at 100% late in the season if they hope to make a playoff run.

King Dunlap: Dunlap's injury is the least serious of the 3, and he appeared to be in no pain walking around the locker room after the game. Reid said that Dunlap suffered a hamstring strain, and briefly went back to the locker room. With Dunlap out, it was Demetress Bell who took over the role he originally was supposed to have. While Bell did not look bad in limited action, Dunlap should be good to go next week.
