Dennis Kelly will fill in at left guard for Evan Mathis (knee, IR with a designation to return).
An Eagles offensive line that was the best in the league by a wide margin last season is suddenly reeling. Kelly, a 2012 fifth-rounder, is going to have to hold down the fort in place of an All-Pro for two months. Meanwhile, Andrew Gardner is the new right tackle until Lane Johnson gets off suspension. Allen Barbre (ankle) is done for the year. Sep 11 - 11:45 AM

Eagles second-year OT Dennis Kelly will miss the remainder of preseason after undergoing back surgery.

He's having his L2 disc repaired. The wave of Eagles O-Line injuries forced Kelly into 10 starts as a rookie, but he was highly ineffective. With the Birds much healthier — for now — and Lane Johnson in the fold, Kelly will be a pure reserve once he gets off the shelf.

Eagles second-year OT Dennis Kelly has been working with the first-team offense this offseason.

Kelly made 10 starts last season due to the Eagles' offensive line injuries, but struggled to play above replacement level. No. 4 overall pick Lane Johnson is fully expected to be the Week 1 starter, so Kelly has been getting the majority of his playing time at left tackle with Jason Peters not attending OTAs.

Eagles signed fifth-round OT Dennis Kelly to a four-year contract.

A 6-foot-8, 321-pound project, Kelly has long enough arms (33 1/2 inches) to stay at tackle and is agile for a big man. He was a 240-pound high school tight end, but emerged as a 37-game starter at left tackle for Purdue. Kelly is a "finesse" blocker with athleticism, so he'll fit OL coach Howard Mudd's scheme. Kelly will likely spend his first year on the weekly inactives list.

Eagles selected Purdue OT Dennis Kelly with the No. 153 overall pick in the 2012 NFL draft.

A tree-top blocker at 6-foot-8, 321 pounds, Kelly was a three-year starter for the Boilermakers. Although he moves relatively well for his size, Kelly is a bit of a waist-bender who struggles in tight quarters. A left tackle in college, Kelly will likely be pushed to the right side in Philly as a developmental project for OL coach Howard Mudd.
