ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is expected to miss "at least" the first 2 games of the season. Schefter adds that Jeffery won't land on the reserve/PUP list, which means the Eagles expect him back before Week 7. But it might be October before we can trust him in fantasy lineups. We just moved Jeffery further down the WR rankings. While he's sidelined, Nelson Agholor will serve as Philly's #1 WR with Mike Wallace as the #2. TE Zach Ertz and the RBs should also garner a few extra targets.
The Eagles have elected to put WR Alshon Jeffery on the active roster, rather than having him open the season on the physically unable to perform list. Jeffery was eligible after spending all of training camp on the PUP following December foot surgery. GM Howie Roseman told Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer, though, that the team believes Jeffery will be ready before Week 7 and that "being on PUP would restrict him until then." Jeffery is stashable late in fantasy drafts, but he'd be a dead spot on your roster until that foot is ready.
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.
The Eagles have placed WR Alshon Jeffery (Lisfranc) on the active/PUP list. No surprise here. Jeffery is still rehabbing from December Lisfranc surgery, and signs all offseason have pointed to him missing the start of the season. He's now eligible to be placed on the reserve/PUP list later this summer, which would knock him out for at least the first 6 games.
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.
