Eagles TE Brent Celek (concussion) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday's game against the Redskins. With TE Clay Harbor (back) out, Celek is guaranteed a full workload. He's still just a low-end TE1 though. Celek only has 1 TD all year and has topped 65 yards just twice.

Brent Celek PHI -TEhas minor knee injury
Eagles TE Brent Celek suffered what's being called a "minor" knee sprain in Thursday's practice. Knees are always a bit scary, but we have no reason to believe this is anything to worry about. "I'll be good," Celek said after practice. Remember, though, that Celek underwent hip and back surgeries this offseason, so the issues are starting to pile up. We'll keep an eye on his health the rest of the summer.
Brent Celek PHI -TErecovered from offseason surgeries
Eagles insider Adam Caplan notes that TE Brent Celek "looks to be all the way back" from his offseason hip and back surgeries. That jives with Celek's statement back in May that he feels as healthy as he has in a few years. "Celek looked more fluid getting off the line" in minicamp, Caplan observed. After finishing 9th at the position last season, a healthy Celek could be even better in 2012.
Brent Celek PHI -TEhealthier than he's been in awhile
Eagles TE Brent Celek revealed that he's been playing through back and hip injuries for the better part of the past 2 years. He underwent surgery to correct both issues this past January. Celek has been a limited participant in OTAs this week. He believes he'll be better off in the long-run after the surgeries, though, saying that he feels "better than I have probably in the last three of four years." A healthy Celek has top-8 upside in 2012. We'll continue to monitor his health leading up to Week 1.
Brent Celek PHI -TEwill be limited in OTAs
Eagles HC Andy Reid says TE Brent Celek (shoulder, hernia) will be limited in June OTAs. Reid said just a few days ago that Celek is fully expected to be fine for Week 1, and the fact that he'll be able to get on the field at all next month is good news. We'll continue to monitor Celek's progress after those January surgeries.
Brent Celek PHI -TEhealth update
Eagles TE Brent Celek underwent surgeries in early January to repair a sports hernia and a torn labrum in his hip. We haven't heard much about his progress over the past 4 months. HC Andy Reid didn't reveal much in a recent press conference either. “He’s actually doing very well,” Reid said. “We’ll take it easy with him and see how he does." Reid did add that Celek will at least put in some work in OTAs. He's also fully confident that Celek will be ready by the time Week 1 rolls around.
Brent Celek PHI -TEundergoes hernia and hip surgeries
Eagles TE Brent Celek underwent surgeries on Tuesday to repair a sports hernia and a torn labrum in his hip. Celek took a pain-killing injection in his hip in late August, so it looks like he played the entire season with that injury. It's unclear how long he was dealing with the hernia, but he finished with a solid 62 catches for 811 yards and 5 TDs. Celek should be fine for the start of training camp this summer.
Brent Celek PHI -TEactive
Eagles TE Brent Celek (hip) is active for tonight's game against the Bears. The injury doesn't figure to impact his play. Celek has racked up 136 yards and 2 scores in his last 2 games and gets a Chicago defense ranked dead-last in fantasy points against TEs. Celek is definitely a viable fantasy option.
Brent Celek PHI -TEprobable
The Eagles officially designated TE Brent Celek as probable on Saturday. That just supports what we already expected. He and his hip should be good to go Monday night against the Bears. Celek is a good play. Meanwhile, RB LeSean McCoy doesn't even carry a status. That officially means his stomach flu is nothing to worry about.
Brent Celek PHI -TEfine for Week 3
Eagles TE Brent Celek, who suffered a minor back injury last weekend, is fine for this Sunday's game against the Giants. An MRI on the back came back negative. With just 56 yards through 2 games, he should be on fantasy benches.
Brent Celek PHI -TEhas back injury
Eagles HC Andy Reid confirms that TE Brent Celek suffered a lower back strain during Sunday night's game against the Falcons. Celek appeared to suffer the injury in the 2nd quarter but was able to return to the game. He should be fine for Week 3, although he won't be a fantasy option after totaling just 5 catches for 56 yards in his first 2 games.
Brent Celek PHI -TEdealing with hip problem
Eagles HC Andy Reid revealed that TE Brent Celek recently had a pain-killing injection for his hip. Celek didn't practice on Saturday, but Reid assures that the injury is minor. It's something to keep an eye on, but we still feel comfortable labeling Celek as an intriguing TE2.
Brent Celek PHI -TEto be more involved this year
Eagles QB Michael Vick is making it a point to get TE Brent Celek more involved this season. “The majority of the time last year, he was wide open,” Vick said. “I just failed to get the ball to him – just focusing in on DeSean and Jeremy. I went back on some of my Atlanta film and how I used Alge [Crumpler]. We’re going to get Brent involved this year." Celek managed just 511 yards and 4 scores last year after posting 971 and 8 back in 2009. His targets dropped from 112 to 80. But he spent extra time working with Vick this offseason, and we're expecting to see better chemistry this season. With an ADP in the 11th-round, Celek is looking like a low-risk gamble in fantasy drafts.
Brent Celek PHI -TEbulking up
Eagles TE Brent Celek has put on about 15 pounds this offseason and is now up to 267. He's hoping to play around the 260-pound range this year. "I got to be able to block these defensive ends, man," Celek said. From a real life perspective, it's a good call. Celek should be a more well-rounded TE with the added weight. But we'll have to see how it impacts his ability to get downfield in the passing game.
Brent Celek PHI -TEcould bounce back in 2011
Eagles TE Brent Celek was one of the most disappointing fantasy performers in 2010. After exploding for 971 yards and 8 TDs in 2009, he regressed to just 511 yards and 4 scores last year. With QB Michael Vick taking the reins of Philly's offense, Celek's role diminished. He was targeted just 80 times after seeing 112 looks in '09. But Pro Football Weekly is hearing that Vick and Celek have been working on their chemistry in offseason workouts. And the Eagles are scheming new ways to get the ball to Celek. We doubt that Celek will return to '09 levels this year, but he's definitely worth a shot at his current ADP of 17.08.
