Kelce played through an MCL sprain, a broken foot and an elbow injury last season, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Kelce was able to tough out all three injuries and proclaimed Monday that he's fully healthy heading into the offseason program. He just signed a new one-year extension with the Eagles on March 2 and is expected to be the highest paid center in the league next season. The deal is certainly merited, given his willingness to play through injury and Super Bowl champion resume.
The deal is expected to make Kelce the highest paid center in the league while simultaneously providing the Eagles a small amount of cap space this offseason. There were rumors Kelce might consider retiring after dealing with a troubling elbow injury for much of the season, but those talks should be put to rest with the veteran now signed through the 2021 campaign.
Kelce (elbow) was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, Mike Kaye of NJ.com reports.
Kelce exited last Sunday's loss to the Saints due to his lingering elbow issue, but does not appear to have aggravated the injury in any way. The starting center's participation in Wednesday's practice indicates that he's on track to suit up for Sunday's divisional tilt against the Giants, which amounts to a must-win game for the Eagles.
Kelce (elbow) is fine after exiting Sunday's game against New Orleans, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.
The specifics of Kelce's elbow injury are unclear but it isn't thought to be something that will force him to miss much game time, if any. He should be considered questionable for Week 12 for the time being, with his practice status later this week giving a better indication of his ability to play Sunday.
Kelce (elbow) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Saints after having initially been ruled out.
Kelce was initially ruled out for Sunday's tilt against New Orleans, but now appears to have a chance at retaking the field. The veteran lineman sustained a left elbow issue during the first quarter according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, and it's an encouraging sign that his status has been upgraded. The Eagles' offense has struggled to put up points in Kelce's absence, and would likely benefit from the star offensive tackle's return.
