Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks will sit out his team's home game against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday due to a lingering calf injury, Philadelphia Inquirer Eagles beat writer Jeff McLane confirmed on Friday morning.
He underwent an MRI after that game, but has yet to return to the field.
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly discussed Kendricks' recovery with reporters, and his comments were mixed:
"He's moving a little better," Kelly said. "We'll see how he is. But he hasn't gotten to the point where we're putting him back in drills yet."
"He's moving," Kelly said, "he's running a little bit more. He was running on the treadmills in the weight room and he's now on the field doing some things."
In Kendricks' only two games this year, he has 10 tackles and one sack. Last season, he compiled 81 tackles, four sacks, three interceptions and recovered four fumbles.
The Eagles are 3-1 this year and currently lead the NFC East.
