Alshon Jeffery: Out another week

Jeffery (calf) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Dallas, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Jeffery didn't log any time on the practice field this week, so he's no lock to be ready after a Week 9 bye. It's also unclear whether he'll have a significant role in the Philadelphia offense if/when he's eventually cleared to play, as Travis Fulgham, Jalen Reagor (thumb) and Greg Ward all have made solid cases to see regular playing time.

Alshon Jeffery: No practice Thursday

Jeffery (calf) was held out of practice Thursday.

Analysis: Jeffery has completed his recovery from December 2019 surgery to address a Jones fracture in his right foot, but now a calf injury is impeding his path to suit up on game days. He was one more chance this week to prove his health ahead of Sunday's contest against the Cowboys.

Alshon Jeffery: Absent from Wednesday's session

Jeffery (calf) isn't practicing Wednesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Jeffery has made a full recovery from December foot surgery, but he's now been dealing with a calf injury for the past few weeks. While a Week 8 appearance doesn't seem likely at this point, Jeffery did manage to practice in a limited capacity a couple times last week, so a return shouldn't be too far off.

Alshon Jeffery: Day-to-day with calf injury

Jeffery has moved past the foot issue that previously sidelined him, but he's now dealing with a calf injury, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Per Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, Jeffery sustained his calf injury "weeks ago" and is now considered day-to-day as Sunday's game against the Cowboys approaches.

Alshon Jeffery: Season debut will wait

Jeffery (calf/foot) won't suit up Thursday against the Giants.

Analysis: The will-he-or-won't-he play with Jeffery will have to wait another week as he tends to foot and calf issues. The latter is a new one for the veteran wide receiver, but alas Jeffery will miss his seventh game in a row to start the season. With DeSean Jackson (hamstring) expected to return Thursday, the Eagles' remaining options at wide receiver will be Travis Fulgham, Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Quez Watkins.

Alshon Jeffery: Unlikely to return Thursday

Jeffery (foot) isn't likely to play Thursday against the Giants, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Coach Doug Pederson noted Wednesday that the team's short week made it hard to get Jeffery ready for a return to action. The wideout will thus look to potentially rejoin the mix in Week 8, when the Eagles face the Cowboys on Nov. 1. Jeffery's official status for Thursday's contest is slated to arrive later Wednesday, upon the release of Philadelphia's final Week 7 injury report.

Alshon Jeffery: Remains limited

Jeffery (foot) was listed as limited on Tuesday's estimated injury report.

Analysis: Despite logging limited practices for roughly one month, Jeffery has yet to make his season debut, so it remains to be seen if the Eagles will clear him to play Thursday versus the Giants. Meanwhile, DeSean Jackson (hamstring) also has been limited this week but is expected to return to action. The availability of Jeffery and Jackson likely will determine how much run Travis Fulgham, John Hightower and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside can expect moving forward.

October 20, 2020 1:22 PM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Limited on estimated report

Jeffery (foot) is listed as a limited participant on Monday's practice report.

Analysis: Jeffery has consistently put forth limited practice sessions in recent weeks, so his listing on Monday's estimated report doesn't come as much of a surprise, but he's still looking to make his 2020 debut. It looks like the veteran would need to put forth a full practice session Tuesday or Wednesday in order to suit up for Thursday's game against the Giants.

October 19, 2020 1:18 PM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Won't play Week 6

Jeffery (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Baltimore, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Analysis: Jeffery logged another limited practice Friday, continuing the trend of recent weeks. He'll face a challenge to avoid any additional game absences, considering the Eagles host the Giants on Thursday Night Football in Week 7.

October 16, 2020 12:26 PM EST

Alshon Jeffery: May not return Sunday

Jeffery (foot) has been practicing with the scout team and appears unlikely to play Sunday against the Ravens, Geoff Mosher of 97.5 The Fanatic Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: The veteran wideout practiced as a limited participant Wednesday and Thursday, but he's been working with the scout team rather than the first-team offense. Coach Doug Pederson didn't offer much optimism during his Friday morning press conference, putting Jeffery's status in doubt for the sixth straight game to begin the season.

October 16, 2020 9:05 AM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Still limited at practice

Jeffery (foot) was limited at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Jeffery continues to log limited sessions when he isn't afflicted by an illness, so the Eagles may still be waiting for the wide receiver to practice in full before clearing him for his season debut. Friday's injury report may give a sense of his ability to do so Sunday against the Ravens.

October 15, 2020 1:22 PM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Officially limited Wednesday

Jeffery (foot) was listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Jeffery has been sidelined all season while recovering from Lisfranc surgery on his right foot, but his absences in the Eagles' final two practices of Week 5 were the result of an illness. Since the Eagles' Week 6 report doesn't list the illness alongside Jeffery's name, he's presumably moved past the ailment and can now focus on overcoming the foot injury. Given that Jeffery hasn't been a full practice participant at any point in 2020, he'll likely need to increase his activity Thursday or Friday to have a realistic chance at making his season debut Sunday against the Ravens.

October 15, 2020 7:45 AM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Returns to practice

Jeffery (foot, illness) is practicing Wednesday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: The Eagles listed Jeffery as a limited participant on five of their nine practice reports the past three weeks. He likely needs at least one full practice before he's cleared to play in a game, and it remains to be seen if that will happen this week. The Eagles also have DeSean Jackson (hamstring) participating in Wednesday's practice, so Week 5 hero Travis Fulgham may have target/snap competition heading his way for Week 6 against Baltimore.

October 14, 2020 11:08 AM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Remains out Week 5

Jeffery (foot/illness) was ruled out for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The 30-year-old began the week as a limited practice participant, but he's been sidelined by a non-COVID-19 illness the past couple days and won't make his season debut Sunday. Jeffery continues to progress in his return from the foot injury, but he'll at least end up missing the first five games of the season. The availability of DeSean Jackson (hamstring) remains in question, which could leave Greg Ward and John Hightower to work as the team's top-two wideouts again this week.

October 9, 2020 7:57 AM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Comes down with illness

Jeffery (foot) didn't practice Thursday due to an illness, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Prior to Thursday's absence, Jeffery had been listed as limited on five of the Eagles' past six injury reports, so this minor setback could delay his season debut yet again. Friday's practice and subsequent report may be key to his potential to play Sunday at Pittsburgh.

October 8, 2020 10:29 AM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Limited in practice Wednesday

Jeffery (foot) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Following word from coach Doug Pederson that Jeffery will practice this week as he's done in previous weeks, Jeffery did just that Wednesday. As a result, Jeffery's season debut may be imminent, as long as he avoids any setbacks and especially puts in a full session Thursday and/or Friday. His status could receive some clarification by week's end.

October 7, 2020 2:25 PM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Getting closer

Jeffery (foot) is slated to practice this week, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The same applies to fellow wideout DeSean Jackson (hamstring), with both veteran pass-catchers "getting closer" to a return to action, EJ Smith of the Philadelphia Inquirer relays via coach Doug Pederson. Jeffery has been logging limited practice sessions over the past couple of weeks and it's possible that he could make his season debut as soon as Sunday against the Steelers.

October 7, 2020 9:01 AM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Won't make season debut Sunday

Jeffery (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game at San Francisco.

Analysis: Jeffery has logged limited sessions in four of the last five practices, but the activity hasn't been enough to clear him for his season debut. The Eagles receiving corps also will be without DeSean Jackson (hamstring), and second-year pro J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (calf) is doubtful, leaving the team with two healthy wide receivers (Greg Ward and John Hightower) on the active roster. Expect the team to call up a few of Deontay Burnett, Travis Fulgham and Marcus Green for Week 4.

October 2, 2020 1:21 PM EST

Alshon Jeffery: DNP on Thursday

Jeffery (foot) was a non-participant at Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Dropping from limited Wednesday to no work Thursday is a concerning development for Jeffery, who still is getting back to full health after undergoing surgery in December to address a Lisfranc injury in his left foot. Joining Jeffery on the sideline were fellow wide receivers DeSean Jackson (hamstring), J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (calf) and John Hightower (illness). As a result, the Eagles went through practice Thursday with just one WR on the active roster (Greg Ward). Friday's injury report could clear up the situation heading into the weekend.

October 1, 2020 2:31 PM EST

Alshon Jeffery: Not present Thursday

Jeffery (foot) wasn't present during the part of Thursday's practice open to the media, Chris Franklin of NJ.com reports.

Analysis: There's still a chance Jeffery took the field once the session was closed to the media, but if not this could mark a downturn after he practiced in a limited capacity three times dating back to last week. The development also would add to the woes in the Eagles' receiving corps, as Greg Ward was the sole WR on the active roster to take part in the open portion of practice Thursday.
