The Eagles have acquired WR Golden Tate from the Lions in exchange for a 3rd-round pick. Tate figures to keep his slot role in Philly, pushing Nelson Agholor to the outside. He's unlikely to match the 9.9 targets per game he's averaged in Detroit so far this season, though, with Agholor, Alshon Jeffery and Zach Ertz to contend with. Tate looks like more of a WR3 with big-game potential the rest of the way. His arrival is a nice boost for QB Carson Wentz. Meanwhile in Detroit, both Marvin Jones and Kenny Golladay are in for big volume boosts. T.J. Jones is the favorite to step into the #3 WR role but is a long shot to be a fantasy factor.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (chest) isn’t listed on the final Week 5 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday after sitting out Wednesday. The chest issue isn’t a concern, but a matchup with Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes makes Jeffery more of a WR3 this week.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (chest) returned to practice on Thursday. It's confirmation that his Wednesday absence was precautionary. Jeffery figures to see a bunch of Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes this weekend, making him more of a WR3.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery was held out of Wednesday's practice with a chest injury. Insider Jeff McLane hears that Jeffery "just needed a rest day and should be good to go for Sunday." We'll see if he gets back on the practice field tomorrow.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder, illness) is active for today’s game against the Titans. He’s a risk/reward fantasy play in his 1st action since the Super Bowl.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery will play against the Titans today, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. Jeffery was cleared for contact and practiced on Wednesday, but he missed Thursday and Friday's workouts with an illness. We're expecting him to be at least a bit limited in his 1st action since the Super Bowl, making Jeffery a risky Week 4 fantasy play.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is a game-time decision for Week 4, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. It sounds like it's actually the illness that kept Jeffery out of practice on Thursday and Friday that has him iffy for today's game vs. the Titans. His shoulder was cleared for contact early in the week. We'll find out Jeffery's official status by noon ET, but he's best off on fantasy benches this week.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder, illness) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Titans. He's been cleared for contact and put in a full practice on Wednesday, but he was sidelined Thursday and Friday with an illness. We'll find out Jeffery's status by noon ET on Sunday. If active, he figures to be on a snap count in his 1st action of the season.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery has been cleared for contact, HC Doug Pederson said Wednesday. Pederson wouldn't commit to playing Jeffery this weekend, but we're guessing he'll be out there if he avoids a setback over the next few days. Jeffery will be a risk/reward WR3 option in his 1st action of the season in a plus matchup against the Titans.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is inactive for today’s game against the Colts. He’s been practicing for a couple of weeks now but still hasn’t been cleared for contact. We’ll continue to monitor his progress this coming week.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is "not quite ready yet." He's been practicing for a couple of weeks and is listed as questionable for today's game against the Colts, but HC Doug Pederson conceded Friday that Jeffery still hasn't been cleared for contact. We'll continue to monitor his progress.
The Eagles have listed WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Colts. He was limited in practice all week, and HC Frank Reich said Friday morning that Jeffery still hasn't been cleared for contact. We're not expecting him to play, but we'll find out for sure by noon ET on Sunday.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) still hasn't been cleared for contact, HC Doug Pederson said Friday. Jeffery has been practicing for a couple of weeks now but still has that final hurdle to clear. He won't play against the Colts this weekend, but a Week 4 return is possible.
Eagles HC Doug Pederson said Monday that WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remains "week to week." Jeffery returned to limited practices last week, but it doesn't sound like he'll be back for Sunday's game against the Colts. With Mike Wallace (leg) and Mack Hollins (groin) also out, Philly is down to Nelson Agholor, Shelton Gibson, Kamar Aiken and DeAndre Carter at WR.
Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) has been medically cleared and will start Sunday's game against the Colts, the team announced Monday. Philly has been extremely cautious bringing Wentz back from last December's torn ACL and LCL in his left knee. He's reportedly been throwing well in practice, but his mobility inside and out of the pocket remains a question. Wentz will be a risk/reward Week 3 fantasy play in a plus matchup. His return is excellent news for the rest of the Eagles' skill-position guys. QB Nick Foles totaled 451 yards with just 1 TD and 1 INT over the first 2 weeks.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is out for Sunday’s game against the Bucs. He put in 3 limited practices this week, so perhaps he has a shot to return for Week 3. Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace will again serve as Philly’s top 2 WRs this weekend.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) will participate in individual drills on Wednesday, HC Doug Pederson said. Jeffery will still be held out of full-team work and is a long shot to play against the Bucs this weekend. But he's at least making tangible progress. A Week 3 return seems possible.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery told MMQB's Jenny Vrentas on Thursday night that he has "a couple more visits with the doctor" before he can get back on the field. Vrentas said Jeffery nodded when asked if he was still a few weeks away from playing. The team had reportedly hoped to get him back by Week 3, but that looks like a shaky expectation right now. Jeffery's absence should leave more targets available for WRs Mike Wallace and Nelson Agholor and could help TE Dallas Goedert build his early-season red-zone role. The rookie drew an end-zone target (incomplete) in Thursday's win over the Falcons.
