Center Jason Kelce will not require surgery after the team determined that his injury is a mild right foot sprain, the Eagles said today.

Kelce hurt his foot in the final game of the year and there was concern in a worst-case scenario that it was a Lis Franc sprain, which would require a lengthy recovery. But he does not have such an injury, the Eagles said.

Kelce started all 16 games in his rookie year and a full offseason of work would figure to help his development, something that might have been in jeopardy if he had a more serious injury.

The Eagles also re-signed center Dallas Reynolds to a futures contract. Reynolds has been on the team's practice squad.
