The San Francisco 49ers do not hit the practice field for a couple hours, but in the meantime, the Philadelphia Eagles have wrapped up their final practice. The Eagles released their final injury report, and as expected, center Jason Kelce and linebacker Mychal Kendricks are both out for Sunday's game.
Kelce was ruled out as soon as the week began. He is recovering from a sports hernia surgery, and is one of several reasons for a fairly big re-shuffling of the Eagles offensive line. The line will consist of LT Jason Peters, LG Matt Tobin, C David Molk, RG Dennis Kelly, and RT Todd Herremans. Tobin has been injured since the final week of the preseason. The 2013 UDFA has the confidence of the coaching staff, and so they moved Kelly from left guard to right guard, and Herremans from right guard to right tackle. This sent struggling Andrew Gardner to the bench.
According to Bleeding Green Nation, Kendricks will be replaced by some combination of Emmanuel Acho, Casey Matthews, and rookie first round draft pick Marcus Smith II. It will be interesting to see how the 49ers attack the middle of that Eagles defense. Additionally, Kendricks is a big part of the Eagles pass rush, so this removes one threat from the field.
Here is the Eagles full injury report:
Out: C Jason Kelce (hernia), ILB Mychal Kendricks (calf)
Questionable: WR Josh Huff (shoulder)
Probable: DE Fletcher Cox (back), DE Brandon Bair (foot), CB Brandon Boykin (hip), TE James Casey (knee), WR Jordan Matthews (oblique), WR Brad Smith (groin), OG Matt Tobin (ankle), CB Jaylen Watkins (hamstring), S Earl Wolff (knee)
