Eagles center Jason Kelce has missed practice time recently with an elbow injury and he’s set to miss some more time after a surgical procedure.

The team announced on Tuesday that Kelce will be having the operation. There was no timetable given for Kelce’s return to the field.

“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,” the team said in a statement.

Kelce is heading into his 12th season with the Eagles and he has not missed a game since the 2014 season, so he will have a long consecutive games streak on the line as he recovers from the surgery.

  1. Good luck. I’m not an Eagles fan but I hope it goes smoothly and he recovers fully and quickly.

  2. apparently cam jergens has been having a good camp so it is lucky they picked him up.

  3. Yeah that’s a tough one for a center, anyone that plays in the trenches really, but centers especially. They drafted his replacement in the 2nd round so if there is a positive, it’s that Cam Jurgens will get a lot of good experience running the offense for the rest of camp & preseason as early indications are that Kelce should be good to go week 1.

  4. I’m sure whoever fills in will be touted as a future HOFer. No team or fan base loves themselves as much as Philly.
