OT Kelly Out For Rest Of Preseason

OT Dennis Kelly’s recent back surgery will sideline him for all four preseason games.

Kelly, who started 10 games as a rookie in 2012, is listed as the team’s second team right tackle. A day 3 draft pick, Kelly was rushed into game action before he was ready. He didn’t embarrass himself in his starts, but wasn’t particularly good, either.

Kelly is definitely talented enough to make the final 53, but the Eagles view him as a pure right tackle. That lack of versatility coupled with his injury hurts his chances of securing a roster spot. Allen Barbre and Michael Bamiro are the primary threats to his job at this point.
