Eagles Subtly Hint That Jalen Reagor's Injury Recovery is Going Well

Now that the time to announce initial 53-man rosters has passed, teams can take advantage of the league's new rule regarding injured reserve.

In years past, when a player was put on injured reserve he had to miss the entire season. The only exceptions were two players could come off of it after being on the list for a minimum of eight weeks. This year, a player can be pulled off IR as early as three weeks after being placed on it, with no maximum on how many players you can take back off of IR.

The Eagles announced they placed two players on IR -- Will Parks and Quez Watkins. Parks is expected to miss the first three or four games with his hamstring injury. It's unknown if Watkins has an injury, or if the Eagles are essentially "stashing him" and keeping him in the background in case he needs to get called up when another receiver gets hurt.

In their announcement of those two players going on IR, the team subtly hint that their first-round draft pick, Jalen Reagor, will be ready to make his Eagles debut relatively soon.

Reagor injured his shoulder on August 30th and was expected to miss the next 2-4 weeks. With the team not opting to place Reagor on IR, he could potentially be ready to play in Week 2 against the Los Angeles Rams. If he is not at 100% then, then he should be by Week 3's game against the Cincinnati Benagals.

When Reagor does make his debut, he will have a lot of attention focused on him from Eagles fans. There is plenty of hype surrounding the former TCU star, as NFL Insider Adam Caplan predicted back in June that Reagor would lead the Eagles in receptions this season.
