Eagles center Jason Kelce will miss the remainder of the 2012 season due to a torn ACL. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jason Kelce has been placed on injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the 2012 NFL season to recover from surgey to repair his torn ACL. The Philadelphia Eagles center is expected to make a full recovery by the start of 2013 training camp. Dallas Reynolds will start Week 3 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact: Kelce's injury deals a significant blow to the Eagles' offense, thus affecting the fantasy value of running back LeSean McCoy, quarterback Michael Vick, and receivers Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson. All four are obviously still viable fantasy options, though don't be surprised if there are a few hiccups in the coming weeks. The Eagles averaged 3.9 yards per carry running the ball this season while Kelce was at center.
