Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek suffered a concussion in the team's Week 14 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, according to head coach Andy Reid in his post-game press conference. Celek was the only player listed on the post-game injury report.
The 27 year old sustained the injury on the first play from scrimmage after completing a one-yard reception. After being helped off the field, he returned to the Eagles locker room for further testing. He did not return to the game.
Celek is now the third prominent player on the Eagles offense who is currently suffering from a concussion, joining running back LeSean McCoy and quarterback Michael Vick. Based upon reports from last week, McCoy and Vick are still in the fourth stage of the league's mandated concussion tests.
In addition, defensive tackle Mike Patterson was forced to miss Week 14 due to pneumonia, while safety Kurt Coleman was forced to miss the game because of a cartelidge bruise in his sternum. Running back Chris Polk is still suffering from lingering issues with a toe injury.
The Eagles next game will come on Thursday night when they host the Cincinnati Bengals.
