The Philadelphia Eagles struggled through multiple injuries to their offensive line last season, causing their offense in general to register a disappointing campaign. Unfortunately for Philly, the 2013 season is off to an eerily similar start. Left tackle Jason Peters will miss tonight’s preseason opener with a hamstring ailment, and right tackle Dennis Kelly will be out for the remainder of the exhibition season after undergoing back surgery earlier this week, according to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer. #Eagles T Dennis Kelly had surgery on his back and is out for the rest of the preseason. — Jeff McLane (@Jeff_McLane) August 8, 2013 The procedure, which Kelly underwent on Monday, was to his L2 vertebra. He told reporters – including Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal – that the back bothered him last year, and the discomfort didn’t subside much over the offseason. The injury continued to hamper Kelly into training camp, and the decision to undergo surgery was ultimately made. Dennis Kelly said back bothered him last year, never really subsided in offseason, and still an issue in camp. Hopes to be ready for season — Martin Frank (@Mfranknfl) August 8, 2013 Initially, doctors were hoping Kelly’s back injury would heal naturally on its own given the time off the offensive lineman would have over the offseason. He now is hoping to be ready for the start of the regular season following the procedure, but that would appear to be in question considering the nature of the operation.
