Kelce Leaves Practice for Brief Period
PHILADELPHIA (973espn.com) - Left guard Stefen Wisniewski returned to practice on Thursday and another Eagles' offensive lineman left the session for a brief period, center Jason Kelce.
Wisniewski, who injured his ankle against the Los Angeles Rams last Sunday and missed practice on Wednesday, was working in at least a limited capacity during the opening minutes of the practice open to the media.
Kelce, who has been graded as the top O-linemen regardless of position in the NFL so far this season by ProFootballFocus.com, was visibly upset at the one point, slamming his helmet on the ground, treating a trash can like a poor defensive lineman and leaving for a very short time. The good news is that Kelce, who has been dealing with an ankle injury of his own, returned very quickly and was back participating in individual drills.
For the time Kelce was gone, Isaac Seumalo was working at center with Chance Warmack at left guard and Halapoulivaati Vaitai at left tackle.
Tight end Brent Celek returned to practice after missing Wednesday for the birth of his son Otto while rookie cornerback Sidney Jones was on the field for a second straight day indicating there were no setbacks after his first NFL practice on Wednesday.
Jones, the Eagles' 2017 second-round pick, had been on the non-football injury list while recovering from a torn Achilles suffered at his pro day in March.
