Alshon Jeffery Injury Updates

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.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery underwent surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn rotator cuff, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Jeffery reportedly suffered the injury in training camp but ended up playing all 16 regular-season games for just the 3rd time in his 6-year career. After a slowish start, Jeffery scored 10 times over his final 12 games (including playoffs). We'll keep an eye on his rehab, but it shouldn't impact his availability for the start of the 2018 campaign.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Cowboys after being added to the injury report on Thursday. HC Doug Pederson on Friday described it as "a little ankle" injury and added that he’s “optimistic” that Jeffery will play. Go ahead and keep him penciled into fantasy lineups for now. Hopefully we’ll get another update on Sunday morning.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with an ankle. No word on the severity, but any ding is a concern for a guy with Jeffery's injury history. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery was back at practice on Saturday after missing the previous few days with a shoulder issue. He was limited to individual drills, but it's clear this isn't a significant injury he's dealing with. Jeffery should be full-go come Week 1.

Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery missed his 2nd straight practice Wednesday because of a shoulder injury, according to Matt Lombardo of NJ.com. Jeffery suffered the reportedly minor injury Monday and said "I'm alright" after Tuesday's missed practice. We'll see how long the issue persists.

ESPN's Josina Anderson reports that the Eagles have reached a 1-year deal with WR Alshon Jeffery worth $14 million. The fact that he settled for a 1-year deal suggests that teams weren't keen on committing long-term money to the former Bear. The 1-year term can only help the motivation for a player's whose drive has been questioned since he was entering the league. Jeffery just turned 27 in February and should be in his prime. He has delivered quality fantasy numbers when healthy but lost 11 games to injury over the past 2 seasons. Carson Wentz looks like an upgrade over the QB collage that piloted a sluggish Bears pass offense through last season, and Philly ranked 6th in the league in pass attempts. The overall target picture looks nice, but Jeffery will need to compete with WR Jordan Matthews and TE Zach Ertz for top honors. Wentz, meanwhile, has seen significant upgrades to his pass-catching corps on the 1st day of the 2017 league year. He could challenge for fantasy's top 12 at the position this year.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson is out for Sunday’s game against the Packers. He was previously dealing with a groin injury but actually broke his foot in practice this week. So he’s likely done for the season. WR Eddie Royal (toe) is also out, leaving Alshon Jeffery, Cameron Meredith and Josh Bellamy as Chicago’s top 3 WRs.

The Packers on Wednesday placed #1 CB Sam Shields on IR as he continues to try to work through a concussion. They have also ruled out CBs Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins, who both have groin injuries. That certainly doesn't hurt the fantasy outlook for Bears QB Brian Hoyer, who has already delivered 4 straight games of 300+ passing yards, with 2 TDs in 3 of those.
