According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, it's "pretty much a certainty" that C Jason Kelce (sports-hernia surgery) returns for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Speaking Tuesday, Kelce called himself a game-time decision, but he's been running with the first-team offense in this week's practices. Barring a setback, he should be active for the first time since Week 3. It's excellent timing with RG Todd Herremans battling a biceps injury.

Eagles C Jason Kelce (sports-hernia operation) calls himself a game-time decision for Week 9.

"I'm going to push it this week and see where I'm at," Kelce said after Tuesday's practice, where he ran with the first team. That would indicate that, barring setbacks, he's going to start against the Texans. Kelce's return would be another huge boost for an Eagles rushing attack that's been slowly turning itself around in recent weeks.

Eagles C Jason Kelce (sports hernia surgery) practiced in full on Friday and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Kelce isn't expected to play against the Cardinals, but is on track to resume starting in Week 9. He's going to be a major upgrade to an interior line that's struggled to run block. The Eagles are also hoping to get LG Evan Mathis (knee) back within the next two weeks.

Eagles C Jason Kelce (sports hernia surgery) is practicing Tuesday.

Kelce was originally targeting Week 10 for his return, but appears to be ahead of schedule. PFF's No. 1 center from a year ago will do wonders to stabilize an offensive line that is finally getting healthier. LG Evan Mathis (knee) is reportedly doing well and could be back by Week 10.

Eagles C Jason Kelce (sports hernia surgery) is expected to return in Week 10.

Kelce has "progressed well" from surgery and could end up missing only five games. His return will be a major upgrade for an offensive line that's struggled to run block. The Eagles will also get RT Lane Johnson (four-game suspension) back this week.

Eagles C Jason Kelce needs surgery to repair a sports hernia.

It's the latest blow to a mangled Eagles offensive line. Kelce will reportedly be out 6-8 weeks, leaving David Molk to step in at center. This is a unit that was already without RT Lane Johnson (4-game suspension), RT Allen Barbre (ankle) and stud LG Evan Mathis (knee). An offensive line that was nothing short of dominant last season is now playing at a bottom-five level.

Eagles C Jason Kelce left Sunday's Week 3 game against the Redskins in the third quarter with an abdominal injury and is done for the day.

Kelce appeared to pull his abdominal, and walked gingerly to the locker room. It's another huge concern for a battered Eagles offensive line that has already lost Evan Mathis and Allen Barbre to injury. They're not playing ay anywhere near the dominant level they were at in 2013.

Eagles signed C Jason Kelce to a six-year, $37.5 million contract extension.

Kelce had one year at $645,000 remaining on his rookie deal, so this is really a seven-year contract that takes the 26-year-old through 2020. The deal includes $13 million guaranteed and puts Kelce among the top-five centers in the league in terms of both guaranteed money and average annual salary. It's fair compensation. Kelce busted out in a big way in 2013, emerging as PFF's No. 1 center while anchoring the league's most dominant run-blocking line. Additionally, centers tend to age better than just about any position in football. The Eagles now have their entire talented starting offensive line locked up through at least 2016, which is fantastic news for LeSean McCoy and Nick Foles.

The Philadelphia Inquirer wouldn't be surprised if a contract extension for C Jason Kelce is announced soon.

Left tackle Jason Peters signed a four-year extension Wednesday, ensuring he won't hit the free agent market in 2015. Look for the Eagles to execute a similar path with Kelce. He's just 26 years old and coming off a breakout season that saw him grade out as PFF's No. 1 center.

CSN Philly expects the Eagles and C Jason Kelce to hammer out a long-term contract extension before the season.

Kelce is entering the final year of his rookie deal, which is currently scheduled to pay him a base salary of $645,000. After missing 14 games in 2012 with a torn ACL, Kelce came back to start all 16 games this past season and graded out as Pro Football Focus' No. 1 center. He could command $5 million annually.

Eagles C Jason Kelce (knee) has been medically cleared for full participation at training camp.

Kelce tore his ACL during Week 2 last season, one of the first dominoes to fall in the Eagles' season to forget. He may be eased in and will wear braces on both of his knees, but his health no longer appears an issue. Kelce is part of an offensive line that has a chance to make a major leap forward this season.

Eagles C Jason Kelce is "fully recovered" from last year's MCL tear and partially torn MCL.

Kelce was limited at minicamp, but has been medically cleared and will be a full-go for training camp. Now a third-year player, the Eagles believe Kelce is ascending and an ideal athletic fit for Chip Kelly's up-tempo offensive attack.

Eagles C Jason Kelce (knee surgery) and LG Evan Mathis (ankle surgery) are getting in "some" reps in minicamp.

Neither appears to be going full speed quite yet, but it's a good sign ahead of training camp. LT Jason Peters has also resumed practicing after missing time to attend to a personal matter. Slowly but surely, the Eagles are getting their injury-ravaged offensive line back to full health. That's a good thing for coach Chip Kelly, and an even better thing for Michael Vick.

Eagles C Jason Kelce (knee surgery) isn't quite 100 percent just yet.

Kelce tore his MCL and partially tore his ACL last September, but OL coach Jeff Stoutland says he's "very close" to full health. Kelce has been limited to individual drills at OTAs, but we'd expect him to be cleared for minicamp. Kelce is expected to wear a brace this season.
