PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Chip Kelly said Cody Parkey’s injury, a new leg injury that occurred during pregame warmups on Sunday, is just “precautionary” and no roster move is imminent.
“It’s a new injury in his leg,” Kelly said on Monday. “[Parkey] said he felt a pain. He didn’t get the kickoffs where we normally get the kickoffs and obviously he was consistent in the kicks that we asked him to do.READ MORE: Spirit Airlines Adding 7 New Flight Destinations From Philadelphia

FOXSports.com’s Alex Marvez reported earlier on Monday that the Eagles will reportedly workout kickers.
Parkey, who battled through a groin injury this summer, has struggled early on in the season missing a potential 44-yard game winning field-goal in Week 1. On Sunday at the Jets, Parkey seemed to have difficulty during kickoffs, evident by a first quarter kickoff which bounced out of bounds at the two-yard line.MORE NEWS: WATCH LIVE: Delaware Officials To Provide COVID-19 Update
Only 21.5 percent (3-13) of Parkey’s kickoffs have been touchbacks through three games, which ranks at the bottom of the NFL.
