Jeffery expects to miss a few more weeks | Shark Bites | Draft Sharks

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.

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.

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.
