Not a 'season-ender' for Evan Mathis

The Eagles aren’t confirming a report that All-Pro guard Evan Mathis sprained a medial collateral ligament Sunday in the first half of a win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The report in stated an MRI Monday revealed the damage.

The good news for Mathis, who has started 41 straight games for the Eagles, is that head coach Chip Kelly has been told the medical people think it’s an MCL, which wouldn’t necessarily be the end of the 2014 campaign for Mathis.

“They just said they didn’t think it was his ACL and that would be a season-ender,” Kelly said Monday. “That’s all I was told yesterday. They thought it was his MCL and they were going to send him for an MRI.”

Right tackle Allen Barbre, the replacement for Lane Johnson, suspended four games by the NFL, has a sprained ankle. Barbre was unable to play through the injury Sunday.
