Jason Kelce cleared concussion protocol despite showing troubling signs beforehand.
The Philadelphia Eagles center was apparently dazed after the team gave up a sack on a third down in the second quarter of their game Sunday night against the Atlanta Falcons. Kelce later was shown on the Eagles’ sideline while his team kicked a field goal on fourth down. NBC announcer Al Michaels said that Kelce had gone to the wrong sideline initially before finding his way to Philly’s sideline.
About 15 minutes after mentioning that, Michaels said Kelce had cleared concussion protocol and was ready to return.
The Eagles had multiple injuries in the game. In addition to Kelce’s concussion check, Dallas Goedert, Alshon Jeffery, and DeSean Jackson all had injuries that left them questionable to return. Carson Wentz also exited before halftime after taking a big hit.
