Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery Still Not Cleared For Contact


Eagles HC Doug Pederson told reporters on Monday that WR Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) still has yet to be cleared for contact, per Jeff McLane.

Last week, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Jeffery could return for Week 4’s game.

Jeffery was cleared to return to practice last week, so he is making progress, but it appears as though there’s a chance he could miss another game.

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.

We’ll have more regarding Jeffery as the news is available.
