Alshon Jeffery Injury Updates

The Eagles will release WR Alshon Jeffery after the new league year begins in March, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This comes as no surprise. Jeffery just turned 31 and is coming off a 6-catch season, delayed by a late-2019 foot injury. We'll see whether Jeffery catches on anywhere else. We'll also see exactly how the Philly pass-catching corps shakes out through free agency and the NFL Draft. (The Eagles pick 6th overall.) TE Zach Ertz has been a rumored potential mover as well. We'd bet on Philadelphia making a significant WR addition via the draft or free agency. Travis Fulgham and Jalen Reagor stand as the top 2 incumbent wideouts in targets. (Greg Ward is an exclusive-rights free agent.)

The Eagles expect WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) to be a full participant in practice after the bye. Jeffery, of course, has not played since suffering a Lisfranc injury last December but added the calf injury in the lead-up to Week 7. We'll see about his return to game action, and then how big a role he'll play. Jeffery won't be usable in fantasy lineups in most cases at least until we see a game from him. His role, however, could impact playing time for fantasy revelation Travis Fulgham.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is out for Thursday night's game against the Giants. He's now listed on the injury report with a calf, in addition to the foot. Jeffery's absence ensures that Travis Fulgham will remain Philly's starting 'X' receiver this week.

The Eagles have placed WR Jalen Reagor on IR following surgery to repair a torn ligament in his thumb. That will put him out for at least the next 3 games, but the team reportedly doesn't expect him back until Week 10 (after the bye). Reagor's absence leaves snaps outside-WR snaps available for J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, rookie John Hightower and Alshon Jeffery, as soon as Jeffery is ready coming off his December Lisfranc injury. Jeffery looks most interesting among the 3 and is worth claiming off waivers if you have a spot to stash him until we see him back in game action.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (Lisfranc) returned to practice on Thursday. It's his 1st official workout since last December's foot injury. Jeffery still figures to be at least a couple of weeks away from his 2020 debut, but he's trending in the right direction. His status has taken on increased importance with WR Jalen Reagor (thumb) out indefinitely.

Adam Caplan of Inside the Birds reports that Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery "has a real shot to return in September and is unlikely to remain on PUP to start the season." Jeffery is nearing 9 months since December surgery for a Lisfranc injury. We'll continue to keep an eye on his return. We'll also see whether Jeffery can get back before rookie WR Jalen Reagor returns from his shoulder injury.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery underwent surgery to repair his Lisfranc injury on Saturday, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports. "The hope is he’ll be ready to go by the start of the 2020 season," Garafolo adds. Lisfrancs can be tough to recover from -- especially for a soon-to-be 30-year-old receiver with a long injury history. Jeffery is due $11.5 million fully guaranteed in 2020, so he'll be back with Philly.

The Eagles have placed WR Alshon Jeffery on IR, officially ending his 2019 campaign. Jeffery suffered a Lisfranc injury in Monday night's game against the Giants, according to NBC Philadelphia's John Clark. The Eagles promoted WR Robert Davis from the practice squad to take Jeffery's place on the roster. Davis joins J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward as the team's healthy WRs.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery's injury is "significant" and might cost him the rest of the season, according to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. We're still waiting for an official diagnosis on Jeffery, but it looked like a serious injury from the moment it happened. Fantasy owners shouldn't be counting on him the rest of the way.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery told the media he "felt something pop" in his foot during the 2nd quarter of Monday night's game against the Giants. The team is calling it a foot injury, which is better than an Achilles. But this obviously sounds like a serious issue. Jeffery is scheduled for an MRI on Tuesday. Philly is razor-thin at WR, with DeSean Jackson on IR, Nelson Agholor dealing with a knee injury and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside appearing to hurt his hamstring late in the Giants game.

The Eagles have ruled WR Alshon Jeffery out for Sunday's game against the Patriots with his ankle injury. That leaves Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins and newly signed Jordan Matthews as the likely top 3 wideouts for QB Carson Wentz. The Philly QB would have been a weak option against New England even with Jeffery. He's at the bottom of QB2 range now.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is "day-to-day" with an ankle injury, HC Doug Pederson said Wednesday. Jeffery hurt the ankle in Week 9 and still isn't completely over it after the bye week. We'll keep an eye on him over the next few days, but he's not a recommended Week 11 fantasy play vs. New England anyways.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) isn't listed on the final Week 4 injury report after full workouts on Tuesday and Wednesday. His matchup with a talented Packers secondary on Thursday night is a bigger concern than the calf injury. We have Jeffery ranked as a low-end WR3 this week. WR DeSean Jackson (groin) has been ruled out, so it figures to be Mack Hollins joining Jeffery on the outside with Nelson Agholor in the slot.

Eagles HC Doug Pederson labeled WR DeSean Jackson (groin) -- along with WR Alshon Jeffery (calf) and TE Dallas Goedert (calf) -- "day to day" in a Tuesday morning radio interview. "It's day to day with these guys and we're going to continue to rehab these guys this week and see where they're at," Pederson added. "I'm not going to commit right now to that (them playing in Week 3) because I want to make sure they put in a full week of practice before we make that determination." We'll keep a close eye on the Eagles' practice reports all week.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (biceps) isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report. He was limited on Thursday but returned to a full practice on Friday. Jeffery is safe to get into fantasy lineups for this weekend’s opener against the Redskins.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery was added to the injury report on Thursday with a biceps issue. He was limited in practice. We don't have any other details on the ailment but will update Jeffery's status as soon as we learn more.

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 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.
