Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek (hip) missed practice on Wednesday, according to Geoff Mosher of Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia. Celek had not been on the team's injury report at all this season until now.
Fantasy Impact: When quarterback Michael Vick first joined the Eagles and was still duking it out with former teammate Kevin Kolb for the starting role under ex-coach Andy Reid, Celek made a case for himself with respect to being a No. 1 fantasy tight end.
Things have changed in Philadelphia in recent years, and even though quarterback Nick Foles has 10 touchdowns in the last two games and seems to be on fire, there hasn't been a subsequent spike in Celek's production.
With that in mind, it seems that Celek has relegated himself to the type of tight end who is only worth using in a one-off scenario.
Having Foles start at quarterback has benefited wide receiver Riley Cooper the most, and Desean Jackson was clearly the No. 1 pass catcher on the team already, so there really isn't a situation where Celek's production would suddenly increase in general.
