Injury Update: Kendricks, Kelce On Injury Report
Mychal Kendricks looked a little hobbled as he walked around the locker room following Sunday’s loss to the Chargers.
“It’s football,” said Kendricks. “Everyone’s dinged up.”
The second-year linebacker has a groin injury, turns out, though he was listed as a full participant for Monday’s practice.
Brandon Boykin (quad), Brent Celek (shoulder) and Jason Kelce (thumb) were the other new names on the injury report. Celek was hurt on the same play that Michael Vick was banged up on late in the contest. Both players only missed one down before re-entering the game. Vick was not listed on the report.
Kelce had his right thumb wrapped following the game. Chip Kelly said that the thumb wasn’t broken and that the center was “full-go” Monday. All of the players above were listed as full participants for today’s non-contact practice.
Bradley Fletcher (concussion) is back practicing and is expected to play Thursday against the Chiefs. Dennis Kelly (back) was cleared for all football activities by the doctor on Sunday. He is targeting the Denver game for his return.
The only player unable to practice Monday was cornerback Brandon Hughes, who suffered a hamstring injury against San Diego.
