Eagles lose Kelce and two DBs to injuryReuters | Updated: 19-11-2018 04:30 IST | Created: 19-11-2018 04:30 IST
The Philadelphia Eagles' injury woes continued Sunday, as center Jason Kelce and defensive backs Sidney Jones and Avonte Maddox were all injured during the first half of the Eagles' game at the New Orleans Saints.
Kelce was quickly ruled out with an elbow issue, and Maddox was also ruled out with a knee injury. Jones (ankle) returned to the game but began rotating on and off the field with fellow cornerbacks Rasul Douglas and Chandon Sullivan.
The Eagles were already banged up on the back end, with Rodney McLeod (torn MCL) and Ronald Darby (torn ACL) lost for the season and Jalen Mills (foot) out. Mills hasn't played since a Week 8 game against the Jacksonville Jaguars in London, while Darby went down last week against the Dallas Cowboys.
Kelce, 31, was named first-team All-Pro in 2017 and has two Pro Bowl appearances on his resume. He was replaced by Stefen Wisniewski.
Maddox, a fourth-round rookie, is a cornerback who has played more safety since McLeod went down in Week 3.
