Eagles WRs Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) are inactive for today’s game against the Seahawks. That leaves Jordan Matthews, Mack Hollins, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward as Philly’s healthy WRs. We wouldn’t trust any of them in fantasy lineups. TE Zach Ertz, TE Dallas Goedert and RB Miles Sanders could be the team’s top 3 target-getters today.
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.
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.
