Philadelphia Daily News - Dr. Ronald Grelsamer: “Skeptical Eagles' Kelce Can Return This Season”

 – September 17, 2012 /Press Release/  –– 

The Eagles sketched out a scenario Monday that might allow center Jason Kelce to play again this season, but it is a real longshot. Dr. Ronald Grelsamer, associate professor of orthopedic surgery at The Mount Sinai Hospital, said Kelce's situation "is a common scenario" in sports medicine. Dr. Grelsamer said that while an MCL tear does not require surgery, he questioned Burkholder's 4-to-6-week timeframe. "That can be an annoying injury for a long time," Dr. Grelsamer said. “Even without the ACL tear, it could be tough for him to come back [this season]. He's a very big guy, in a very physically demanding role. It's not like he's a cyclist." Learn more
