Report: Alshon Jeffery out for season

AP

The Eagles are hurting at wide receiver, and it’s not getting any better.

Philadelphia wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will miss the rest of the season, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports. Jeffery suffered a foot injury on Monday night, and although he needs further testing to determine the full severity of the injury, he won’t be ready to go until the offseason at the earliest.

Jeffery has been the Eagles’ No. 1 wide receiver this season and is second only to tight end Zach Ertz with 43 catches for 490 yards. The Eagles have suffered a string of injuries at receiver and only had one healthy wide receiver, Greg Ward, by the end of Monday night’s game.

Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson is on injured reserve and receiver Nelson Agholor was inactive Monday night with a knee injury, and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside also left Monday night’s game with an injury.

  1. Good. He’s a shell of the player he used to be, a disease in the locker room and has snitch blood in his veins.

  2. That’s too bad but now I hope they bring Robert Davis up from the practice squad and give him a chance.

  3. So am I. That first year with the Eagles he helped Philly win the Super Bowl. He played that entire year with a torn rotator cuff and never missed a single game.

    That’s not even a problem at this point. The bigger problem with Alshon is his heart injury – he has none
    ==============================================
    How would you know? You don’t know. What I know is he played the SB season with a should injury so severe that his offseason surgery took months to heal. I don’t like the fact that he’s often injured. But hey, he’s older player now.

    I am sure glad the Bears gave up on him…….

    Me too because he was a significant piece to winning the Super Bowl.

  6. but i thought the little backstabber howie roseman was such a brilliant gm? should’ve kept kelly as both coach AND gm. he would not have put up with this trash.

    Chip was Coach and GM and got crushed. Dismantled a team that took a few years to build up and win the Superbowl. If Chip gets hired again in the NFL it will be worse than Kotite’s rehiring(s)…

    That being said, clearly there’s a problem with health And talent at WR, that how caused, and needs to fix.

  8. The Eagles have a couple problems and some have touched on them above.

    Howie is a brilliant CAP guy (absolutely)

    He also doesn’t share responsibility well, and drives all the good talent evaluator’s right out the door. He wants final say over a roster, the reality is he is not Ozzie Newsome, but thinks of himself as an above average evaluator. Jeffrey Lurie put’s up with this shortcoming for the simple reason he runs the team from a financial perspective better than anyone else he could find. He takes the good with the bad.

    Now I think moving forward you have to be a little concerned with some of the guys they have extended. They believe in loyalty and paying guys they consider the core. They probably kept Peters, Sproles, and Jeffery around too long. The DeSean Jackson contract and Nigel Bradham contracts arn’t looking great at all.

    The training staff and medical staff should all be fired (worst in the league)

    They need a couple good WR out of this draft, frankly more OL help, a S, and a CB maybe two.

    What worries me the most is the leaders on this team are nowhere to be found coaching and players! When they loose and in epic fashion like the Miami game you have people going oh well!

    Have some Pride.

    I think the hidden cost of extending some of the guys in season is it creates some resentment among other guys who think they should have contracts reworked.

    The Swagger is gone and I see no passion.

    All teams are led from the top down, some of these coaches need to go!

    Mike Groh
    Press Taylor
    Carson Walch

    That’s a start maybe Undlin as well

  9. After the SB win (which I’m okay with)
    1. Core players got paid, even a couple of LII stars got to stay.
    2. SomeEx-personnel in the org and team got rings.
    3. Kept Foles and did not tag him.

    What it really cost them:
    1. Wentz had to ‘deal with’ being in a shadow – this will pass.
    2. Lack of depth building for 2 years.
    3. Some of the older players will end up retiring
    4. Keeping and rewarding players on the LII win cost 3 to 5 positions where the rewardees, did not return the favor, maybe “replacement” players may have worked very hard and kept the over-achievement behavior going.

    What they need to do:
    1. (Keep) Drafting or signing good players-coach ’em up.
    2. Have players compete for their jobs (again)
    3. Get hungry players.
    4. Replace WR, OC coaches
    5. Turn over several roster positions in the next season and following season, before the Wentz window starts to close.
