Some Good and Bad News for Injured Eagles Receivers

Eagles players are dropping like flies with injuries left and right and we are still about two weeks away from their first game of the season. Brandon Brooks and Andre Dillard are both out for the entire season, Javon Hargrave's Week 1 status is up in the air, Miles Sanders is considered "week-to-week", Derek Barnett is dealing with a lingering ankle injury, etc. etc. etc.

The Eagles are currently dealing with injuries to two of their wide receivers. First, Alshon Jeffery is still trying to recover from a linsfranc injury he suffered late last season. Then at Sunday's practice at the Linc, first-round pick Jalen Reagor injured his shoulder while trying to make a tackle on an interception.


The team got some good news and bad news on both of their receivers in the early morning hours of Monday.

There was an initial report on Sunday that Jeffery could be ready by September, but that must have been too optimistic. So that can be considered the bad news.

Although Reagor missing anywhere from 2-4 weeks can be considered bad news, it's good news that the shoulder tear he suffered wasn't a major one that will cost him his rookie season. The Eagles offense should (hopefully) be fine without him against Washinton in Week 1, but when the Birds play the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2, it'll be a little more difficult to manage a victory without a threat like him in the lineup.
