Jalen Reagor News

Becomes trade candidate

Jalen Reagor slipped further down the depth chart and is a candidate to be traded after the acquisition of A.J. Brown, Zach Berman of the Athletic reports.

Analysis: Eagles GM Howie Roseman stated after the trade that the team still plans to have Reagor on the roster. But the 2020 first-round pick is now fifth at best on the depth chart with Quez Watkins and Zach Pascal having surpassed him. Greg Ward has been more productive in recent years and is also still on the team. Reagor himself seemed frustrated by news of the deal and erased all mentions of the club on his social media soon after. It may be best for all parties if the 23-year-old got a fresh start elsewhere.

Minimal work against Buccaneers

Reagor caught one of three targets for two yards in Sunday's 31-15 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Reagor had at least five targets in four of the first five games of the regular season, but his workload diminished later in the year. He topped five targets just once in the final 12 contests during the regular season and caught just 33 of 57 targets for 299 yards and two touchdowns while rushing 10 times for 32 yards across 17 appearances. The 23-year-old was Philadelphia's first-round pick during the 2020 NFL Draft, but he's failed to carve out much of a role across his first two professional seasons.

Totals 29 yards in loss

Reagor caught two of his three targets for 19 yards and rushed three times for 10 yards in Saturday's 51-26 loss to Dallas.

Analysis: It was an underwhelming end to an underwhelming regular season for Reagor. He led all Philadelphia pass-catchers in snaps with 69 but still failed to produce. The 2020 first-round pick finishes the campaign with 33 catches on 57 targets for 299 yards and two touchdowns. That's 97 yards fewer than his rookie season despite playing six more games.

Just 15 yards in victory

Reagor caught two of his four targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 34-10 win over the Giants.

Analysis: Reagor was coming off a career-high 57 yards in his previous outing and looked like he might see one of his higher target totals of the season in this one, but Jalen Hurts didn't throw him the ball at all in the second half. The 2020 first-round pick remains at best the third option in the passing game for a run-heavy team.

Posts season high in victory

Reagor caught all three of his targets for 57 yards in Tuesday's 27-17 win over Washington.

Analysis: The 57 yards were a season high for Reagor, who led all Philadelphia wide receivers on the day, trailing only Dallas Goedert among pass-catchers. The TCU product's three catches were his high mark since Week 5.

Dec 22, 2021 10:59 PM EST

Eagles-Washington moved to Tuesday

Reagor and the Eagles will no longer play Washington on Sunday, after the NFL officially rescheduled the matchup between the two teams for Tuesday at 7 p.m. ET.

Analysis: Due to ongoing COVID-19-related issues within Washington's organization, the NFL is hopeful that by delaying the game two days, the Football Team will restore enough players from the reserve/COVID-19 list to alleviate depth concerns on the roster. The two-day delay will also aid Quez Watkins' chances of clearing the necessary protocols and returning from the reserve/COVID-19 list, but if he's not available Tuesday, Reagor could benefit from a slight bump in targets.

Dec 17, 2021 4:40 PM EST

Limited work in Week 13

Reagor secured his lone target for seven yards while rushing once for no yards in Sunday's 33-18 win over the Jets.

Analysis: Reagor finished second among the Eagles' receivers by playing 68 percent of the offensive snaps Sunday, but he wasn't very productive against the Jets. The 22-year-old has been held to just one catch in five of the last six weeks, and he's hauled in seven of 16 targets for 43 yards while rushing four times for 13 yards during that time.

Dec 6, 2021 8:38 AM EST

Blamed for loss

Reagor caught two passes for 31 yards on seven targets against the Giants on Sunday.

Analysis: The Eagles lost 13-7 in a game where Reagor had two chances to make game-winning catches on the final drive, but he dropped both of the otherwise on-target passes. Reagor can't be blamed for Jalen Hurts' broader box score of 14 completed passes for 129 yards and three interceptions on 31 targets, but given the visibility of Reagor's mistakes in the one-score game he might see his playing time and usage suffer going forward.

Nov 28, 2021 2:18 PM EST

Targeted only twice in win

Reagor caught one of his two targets for 12 yards in Sunday's 30-13 win over the Broncos.

Analysis: Reagor's hoped-for breakout has yet to occur, and things are trending in the wrong direction for the 2020 first-round pick. With the team seemingly finding a groove with a run-first offense, things may not turn around any time soon for the 22-year-old. He has seen a total of seven targets over his last four games combined.

Nov 14, 2021 10:21 PM EST

Puts up negative yardage in loss

Reagor caught his only target for a loss of six yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Chargers.

Analysis: The Eagles have drastically reduced their passing attempts over the last two games, leaving precious few opportunities for tertiary options like Reagor. He now has just three catches for 19 yards over his last four games.

Nov 7, 2021 9:06 PM EST

Ready to go for Sunday

Reagor (ankle) practiced fully Friday and doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Analysis: Per Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia, head coach Nick Sirianni confirmed earlier Friday that Reagor would be ready to go for the Week 9 matchup, and the second-year wideout's availability was confirmed after he turned in a full practice. Though Reagor is locked into a regular starting role for the Eagles, he's not seeing enough volume in the passing game to make for a reliable lineup options in the majority of fantasy leagues. Reagor has found the end zone only twice in eight games and has topped out at 53 receiving yards.

Nov 5, 2021 11:16 AM EST

Manages limited practice showing

Reagor (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Reagor took a meaningful step forward in his recovery from the ankle injury he sustained in the Week 8 win over the Lions, as he had previously been a non-participant for the Eagles' first Week 9 practice. The coaching staff will see what Reagor is able to do at Friday's practice before determining whether or not he'll carry a designation into this weekend's game against the Chargers.

Nov 4, 2021 12:38 PM EST

Back at practice Thursday

Reagor (ankle) returned to practice Thursday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: The Eagles' upcoming injury report will reveal Reagor's participation level, but his return to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday's session has the wideout trending in the right direction as Sunday's game against the Chargers approaches.

Nov 4, 2021 10:03 AM EST

Doesn't practice Wednesday

Reagor (ankle) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice.

Analysis: Through Week 7, Reagor routinely logged between 69 and 87 percent of the offensives snaps for the Eagles, but that number fell to 18 percent this past Sunday in Detroit after he hurt his ankle. Fortunately for the second-year wide receiver, the injury isn't expected to impact his availability for game day, per Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer. In any case, Reagor's status should be watched closely to ensure he'll be out there Sunday against the Chargers.

Nov 3, 2021 2:38 PM EST

Avoids serious injury

Reagor did not suffer a serious ankle injury in Sunday's win over Detroit, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: According to coach Nick Sirianni, Reagor is on a short recovery timetable from the injury and there is hope he'll be ready for Week 9. If the TCU product isn't able to go, Greg Ward would likely absorb extra snaps and looks.

Nov 3, 2021 12:34 AM EST

Injures ankle Sunday

Reagor was forced out of Sunday's game against the Lions with an ankle injury.

Analysis: Prior to his exit from the contest, Reagor ran twice for 21 yards and caught one pass for zero yards. In his absence, DeVonta Smith and Quez Watkins will head the Eagles' Week 8 wideout corps.

Oct 31, 2021 10:42 AM EST

Does nothing in loss

Reagor did not corral any of his three targets in Thursday's 28-22 loss to the Buccaneers.

Analysis: Reagor wasn't even targeted in the second half and once again saw fewer targets than Quez Watkins. Although it didn't register in the box score, the TCU product did draw a 45-yard pass interference call to set up the Eagles' first touchdown of the day. Still, he has just four catches on nine targets over his last three games.

Oct 15, 2021 8:06 PM EST

Five targets in win

Reagor caught three of his five targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 21-18 win over the Panthers.

Analysis: For the first time this season, Reagor played fewer snaps than Quez Watkins, who has been more consistently productive on a game-to-game basis in terms of both catches and yards, while also adding the occasional splash play. The good news for the TCU product is it was only a nine snap difference (52-43), and he has seen more targets in every game but one this season. Nevertheless, Jalen Hurts is spreading the ball around too much to count on any pass catcher in this offense outside of DeVonta Smith for the time being.

Oct 12, 2021 12:23 AM EST

Season-high yardage total in loss

Reagor caught five of his eight targets for 53 yards in Monday's 41-21 loss to Dallas.

Analysis: Reagor tied his career high in targets, which was set in Week 15 of last season. Unfortunately, he had the Eagles' huge second-half deficit to thank for the vast majority of the attention, as he had just two looks prior to halftime. The TCU product now has at least five targets in each game this season, so at some point he will likely exceed the 53 yards he put up on the evening that now represent the most he's gained in a game this year.

Sep 29, 2021 12:23 AM EST

Held to five yards in defeat

Reagor caught just two of his five targets for five yards in Sunday's 17-11 loss to the 49ers.

Analysis: Two catches were enough for a share of the team lead on the day, a total shared by four other Eagles. The important number for Reagor is his five targets, however, which represented the second-highest total of the game for the second week in a row. He now has 11 through two games this season, fewer only than DeVonta Smith's 15.
