The Eagles received good news regarding Kiko Alonso‘s injury, according to Ian Rapoport.

A month puts us at October 30, which is in the middle of the Eagles bye week. They play in Dallas on Sunday Night Football November 8.

From earlier:

Alonso suffered the knee injury in the first half of the Eagles’ Week 2 loss to the Cowboys, and hasn’t practiced since the injury.

Other injury news:

Kelly said DeMarco Murray participated in a few drills Tuesday, but his status for this weekend is unknown.

“[Murray] did a couple of things yesterday, and we’ll see how he progresses today. He was limited in practice yesterday, and we’ll see how he goes today.”

Jason Peters and Riley Cooper didn’t practice Tuesday. Cooper was reportedly sporting a limp around NovaCare, and Peters left the Eagles’ game against the Jets early after getting rolled up on.

Still, Kelly said he expects both players to be back in time for the Birds’ matchup against Washington this weekend.

“[Peters and Cooper have both] got a nagging thing, They’ll probably not go full today, and then we expect them back this week.”

Mychal Kendricks practiced Tuesday, and Kelly said the Eagles’ coaches were encouraged by what they saw.

“[Kendricks] got through [Tuesday]. We’ll see how much more he can do today, but he looked good yesterday.

“I think with an injury like Mychal had, it’s a progression thing. How does he progress through the week? We’re encouraged right now.”

Kelly gave some thoughts, and a minor update, on the status of Cody Parkey, who was placed on season-ending injured reserve with a groin injury.

“As I said yesterday, it was a new injury, so it’s in a different spot than the other injury that he had, pre-Packers game or whatever preseason game he did it in.”

“This is a different injury, so what do I make of it? It’s unfortunate for Cody. I feel bad for him. He works extremely hard at what he does. He’s the most conscientious guy I’ve been around in terms of a kicking standpoint. He had a great attitude when I talked to him the other day. He’s going to be here every day, he’s going to help Caleb [Sturgis] out.

“He’s already started his rehabbing process. Because of the nature of his injury, it would be at least eight weeks until he was back doing anything.”
