Not good news for Jason Kelce and his beard.
Eagles trainer Rick Burkholder told reporters today that Kelce has a torn MCL and a partially torn ACL.
The Eagles will wait the 4-6 weeks for the MCL to heal before deciding whether or not the partially torn ACL will need to be repaired, which would end Kelce’s season: [via Eagles 24/7]
“From there, we’ll determine our treatment plan, which could either be four-to-six week rehab and bracing and continue to play, or to do his ACL reconstruction four to six weeks from now,” Burkholder said.
ACL’s don’t usually just heal on their own. But, the MCL has to heal first, according to Burkholder, so there’s no harm in waiting.
As Marcus Hayes annoyingly wrote today, Kelce’s replacement, Dallas Reynolds, wasn’t half bad.
