Malcolm Jenkins missed his second straight day of practice Wednesday because, as Chip Kelly revealed for the first time during his press conference, he suffered a concussion in the Eagles’ win over the Cowboys on Sunday night.

“[Jenkins] won’t go today, he has a concussion,” Kelly said Wednesday. “He’s going through recovery and concussion protocol.”

When asked if the concussion occurred during the game Sunday, Kelly said it did.

Jenkins didn’t miss a single defensive snap against the Cowboys; when a reporter asked about when specifically the injury happened during the game, Kelly suggested reporters talk to Jenkins for details.

With Jenkins sidelined at practice, Kelly said Chris Maragos will take more reps at safety in practice, although Kelly isn’t concerned about Jenkins’ status for Sunday’s home game against Miami.

“It’s not a big deal,” Kelly said. “I think [Jenkins] should be back tomorrow.”

In other practice news, Jason Peters was back at practice for the second straight day after missing last week’s game against the Cowboys with back spasms.

Peters said after the game Sunday that he expects to play this week.

Nelson Agholor was also active in practice for the second straight day.

“Nelson’s good. It’s, how does he progress through the whole week of training?” Kelly said. “He did good yesterday, and he’ll go back out today, but he’s somebody we’ll have to monitor in terms of where he’ll be.

“He was good last week, early, and then I think kind of being out on the field kind of wore him down a little bit. He was good yesterday, he said he’s good today, so we’ll see how he feels.”
