Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery Could Return For Week 4, Unlikely To Play Sunday


ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery, who is listed as questionable with a shoulder injury, is not expected to play against the Colts on Sunday.

However, the good news regarding Jeffery is that he could return next week, according to Schefter.

Jeffery was cleared to return to practice this week, but it sounds like the Eagles won’t rush him back before he’s closer to 100 percent.

The Eagles activated Jeffery from the PUP list coming out of the preseason, which prevented him from missing the first six weeks of the season.

Jeffery, 28, was taken in the second round of the 2012 NFL draft by the Bears. He played out the final year of his four-year, $4.54 million rookie contract with Chicago before agreeing to a one-year, $9.5 million contract with the Eagles last year.

Jeffery was in line to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason before he agreed to a four-year, $52 million extension last year.

In 2017, Jeffery has appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and caught 57 passes for 789 yards receiving and nine touchdowns. Pro Football Focus had him rated as the No. 21 receiver out of 116 qualifying players.
