Rookie Center Kelce Hurts Foot in Finale vs Redskins

Eagles rookie center Jason Kelce will undergo an MRI after suffering a right foot injury during Sunday’s regular season finale against the Redskins, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Kelce’s injury was not mentioned by head coach Andy Reid after the game as the rookie played through the injury for the remainder of the game. Kelce woke up on Monday in pain and had difficulty walking.

“Worst-case, they say it could be Lisfranc,” Kelce said. “But they don’t think it’s that.”

A 2011 sixth-round pick out of Cincinnati, the 6-foot-3, 282-pound Kelce earned the starting job during training camp and started all 16 games for the Eagles this season. Barring the worst-case scenario, and the long-term rehabilitation period that accompanies it, Kelce will enter the 2012 season as the starting center.
