Maclin, Kelce, Dunlap Leave Injured

As the Eagles are clawing back from a haltime deficit, they've lost the services of three starters on offense. First, center Jason Kelce left with a knee sprain. Kelce will not return, leaving center in the capable snapping hands of Dallas Reynolds.

A few plays later in the third quarter, left tackle King Dunlap left with a hamstring string. His return is doubtful and Demetress Bell has taken over at left tackle.

Then, Jeremy Maclin, who was questionable coming into the game with a hip injury, left as well, suffering another injury to the hip. His return is questionable.

UPDATE: Head coach Andy Reid updated the injury picture following the team's dramatic 24-23 victory: "(Jason) Kelce has a knee sprain, and he'll have an MRI in the morning. I can't tell you that that one looks real good, but he does have a knee sprain. (WR Jeremy) Maclin has a hip pointer, and he just kind of re-hurt the same area there. King (Dunlap) has a hamstring strain."

For his part, Kelce is waiting for the MRI results before he gets too high or too low emotionally.

"It doesn't hurt that much right now," he said in the locker room, "but it doesn't feel like I can go out and play a game today; I'll say that."

Maclin, meanwhile, admitted that the hip injury has him in serious pain. Last week, the gritty wide receiver was able to finish the game despite the pain. That tells you all you need to know about the severity of the pain Maclin was feeling this Sunday.

"I'm hurting," Maclin said. "I am hurting, I'm not going to lie to you. We'll see how the week goes."
