Jason Kelce says he thinks his brother Travis will "be good to go" for Thursday's NFL season opener against the Lions.
"I know he's got some swelling going on, but it sounds like as long as they can get that down, he's going to have a chance to go," Kelce told the 94WIP Morning Show on Wednesday. "The ligaments and everything are intact, structurally. From what we know right now, his knee is fine. So really it's about getting that swelling down and seeing how bruised that bone is...I think he is going to be good to go, I really do."
Travis Kelce, who turns 33 in October, hyperextended his during Chiefs practice this week and plans to test his knee today to see if he can play tomorrow night.
"I talked to him yesterday and I've done the same thing," Jason said. "You just plant or you do something and your knee hyperextends. If I'm being truthful, the last time I did this I was making a bonfire outside and I thought I was strong enough to kick a piece of wood in half and I hyperextended my knee and did the same thing, bone bruise."
Travis has missed just three games since 2014—two for rest and one for COVID in 2021.
