According to Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Philadelphia Eagles starting center Jason Kelce underwent successful surgery on a sports injury Kelce suffered during the Eagles' 37-34 win over the Washington Redskins. Kelce is expected to miss six to eight weeks.

Six weeks from today is Tuesday, November 4. If Kelce is ready to return by then, he just might be able to play in the Eagles' November 10 Monday Night Football game against the Carolina Panthers in Week 10. That also happens to be the game where starting left guard Evan Mathis will be eligible to return off of the injured reserve, designated to return list.

Eight weeks from today is Tuesday, November 18. Kelce might be able to return by the Eagles' Week 12 game against the Tennessee Titans if that's the case.

In the meantime, Kelce's loss will certainly be felt. Backup center David Molk had his moments in the preseason but he's no Kelce. The Eagles will have to weather the storm in the meantime.
