Jalen Reagor News

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.

Finds end zone in Week 1 win

Reagor brought in all six targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' 32-6 win over the Falcons on Sunday.

Analysis: The second-year speedster joined DeVonta Smith atop the team leaderboard in receptions and was second behind his rookie teammate in targets in a performance that was markedly better than many of those in his 2020 campaign. After averaging just 7.3 yards per target last season, Reagor opened 2021 still doing a lot of his work close to the line of scrimmage, and factoring out his 23-yard touchdown grab, he generated a minuscule 5.2 yards per catch. Reagor and his fantasy managers will hope for more of a downfield role in a Week 2 battle against the 49ers at Lincoln Financial Field.

Only one grab Friday

Reagor caught his only target for 18 yards in Friday's preseason tie against the Jets.

Analysis: Bad weather delayed the start of the game by about half an hour and left a wet field behind, so the Eagles elected to either sit their starters and key personnel entirely or give them only minimal snaps. Reagor was in the latter category, making his lone grab on Philly's opening possession before calling it a night. After a disappointing and injury-marred rookie campaign, the 2020 first-round pick is looking to become a significant part of the Eagles' passing game beginning Week 1 against Atlanta.

Minimal production Thursday

Reagor secured one of two targets for five yards in the Eagles' 35-0 preseason loss to the Patriots on Thursday night.

Analysis: Reagor has been drawing rave reviews of late for his work in training camp practices, but he was unable to translate much of that strong play to the field Thursday despite playing a solid chunk of the first half. However, it's worth noting Reagor didn't get a chance to play with Jalen Hurts, who was a late scratch due to an illness Thursday night.

Builds momentum ahead of TNF

Coach Nick Sirianni is pleased with Reagor's progress at training camp, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. "I really like the development that's happened," Sirianni said Tuesday. "His 1-on-1s, now, were special, and he was starting to use some techniques that we want him to see because we all know that he has phenomenal athleticism."

Analysis: Reagor missed the first few days of camp after a failed conditioning test and a minor lower-body injury, but he's reportedly improved throughout August, with his performance Tuesday drawing universal praise from Philadelphia beat writers and coaches. The 2020 first-round pick also caught two of three targets for 20 yards in the preseason opener, and he should see more playing time Thursday night against the Patriots.

Catches two Flacco passes

Reagor caught two of three targets for 20 yards and added a seven-yard punt return in Thursday's 24-16 loss to Pittsburgh.

Analysis: Reagor failed to come down with his only look from starting quarterback Jaylen Hurts, but he caught a pair of passes from backup Joe Flacco in the second quarter. While the 2020 first-round pick didn't make much of a case for himself as Philadelphia's No. 1 wide receiver while rookie DeVonta Smith (knee) recovers, Reagor appears primed to work as the Eagles' top punt returner. With Smith likely to sit out Week 2 of preseason against the Patriots, Reagor should get another opportunity to establish himself as a downfield target for Hurts.

Mixed reviews so far in camp

Reagor had a promising practice Thursday but continues to struggle with drops and other miscues this preseason, Zach Berman of the Athletic reports.

Analysis: Reagor was credited with perhaps the best catch of the day Thursday when he jumped over Darius Slay to make a one-handed grab. The 2020 first-round pick has no shortage of talent but has had a number of issues in the early going. He was chewed out for a solid minute by head coach Nick Sirianni and passing game coordinator Kevin Patullo for mistakes made in Wednesday's practice and failed a conditioning test at the start of camp. The Athletic's Bo Wulf relays that with DeVonta Smith (hamstring) out for a few weeks, almost every other receiver on the roster has been flashier (Travis Fulgham, Quez Watkins, John Hightower) or more consistent (J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward) than the 22-year-old Reagor. Given the draft capital invested in the TCU product, he will still almost certainly make the Eagles' roster to start the year, but he'll need to dig himself out of the doghouse if he is to become the breakout player many have projected him to be this season.

Practicing without restrictions

Reagor (lower) is a full practice participant Monday, Jimmy Kempski of reports.

Analysis: Reagor returned to team drills Saturday and now is practicing without limitations. He and Travis Fulgham were banged up during the first week of training camp, while DeVonta Smith is stuck on the sideline with a knee sprain for the second week. Smith and Reagor remain the projected starters, with Fulgham and Greg Ward more likely to compete for the No. 3 job.

Aug 2, 2021 7:41 AM EST

Takes part in team drills

Reagor (lower body) participated in team drills at Saturday's practice, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Reagor was previously limited to individual work after failing a conditioning test at the start of training camp, but he appears to be nearing full strength. The 22-year-old has nearly two weeks to continue ramping things up before the preseason opener Aug. 12 versus Pittsburgh.

Jul 31, 2021 5:13 PM EST

Fails conditioning test

Reagor (lower body) failed a conditioning test at the beginning of training camp, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: The report suggests Reagor suffered a minor lower body injury as a result of the test, also noting that the recent murder of a close friend has weighed heavily on the young wideout in recent weeks. The 2020 first-round pick has been a limited participant through the first two days of training camp, doing individual drills but not team work. DeVonta Smith and Travis Fulgham opened camp as the starting wideouts, though the latter is already day-to-day with a lower body injury of his own. Reagor remains on track for a starting spot and should ramp up his activity level soon enough.

Jul 30, 2021 6:25 AM EST

Limited at start of camp

Reagor is dealing with lower body tightness and was limited at Wednesday's practice, Tim McManus of reports.

Analysis: With the 2020 first-round pick being a limited participant on the first day of camp, the Eagles trotted out DeVonta Smith and Travis Fulgham as their starting wide receivers, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports. Smith, the Heisman winner and 10th overall pick, is a good bet to stay in the lineup for Week 1, while Fulgham may lose his spot as soon as Reagor is deemed healthy. Granted, it isn't a great sign that Reagor is already missing practice reps as he looks to rebound from a disappointing rookie season in which he missed five games.

Jul 28, 2021 7:37 AM EST

Prepping for more slot work

Reagor expects to play the slot this year, though he did clarify that he'll also line up outside, Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice reports.

Analysis: Reagor ran just 21 percent of his routes from the slot last year, primarily lining up on the perimeter while Greg Ward worked as the No. 3 receiver and slot specialist. The Eagles are now bringing in another first-round pick, DeVonta Smith, to join Ward, Reagor, Travis Fulgham and others in the WRs room. Smith and Reagor, the two recent first-round picks, are the safe bets to occupy top-three roles, and the amount of slot work they end up seeing could depend on whether Ward or someone else earns the third spot this summer. In any case, Reagor appears locked in as a starter, coming off a rookie season with only 31 catches for 396 yards and one touchdown in 11 games.

Gets company in receiving corps

Reagor will have a fellow first-round talent lining up for passes alongside him this coming year after the Eagles selected DeVonta Smith out of Alabama with the 10th overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft, Dave Spadaro of the team's official site reports.

Analysis: Reagor never quite got going his rookie season as he battled a number of injuries early and a dysfunctional quarterback situation late. He finished 2020 with 31 catches for 396 yards and a touchdown with 12 of those catches for 174 yards coming from Hurts in the last five games of the season. The addition of Smith should only help the 22-year-old as it gives the offense another weapon to think about and defend. With Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson both jettisoned in the offseason, there should be plenty of looks for both young pass catchers.

Apr 30, 2021 3:39 PM EST

Hurts head in finale

Reagor (head) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's season finale against Washington.

Analysis: Reagor had been working as the No. 1 wide receiver for the depleted Eagles and caught his only target for 15 yards prior to sustaining the injury. The rookie first-round pick dressed for 11 games, catching 31 passes for 396 yards and a touchdown. Reagor should play a larger role next season with a year of experience under his belt.

Jan 3, 2021 6:43 PM EST

Stifled in Sunday's loss

Reagor caught three of seven targets for 30 yards in Sunday's 37-17 loss to the Cowboys.

Analysis: He tied Zach Ertz for the team lead in targets as the Eagles tried desperately to make a comeback in the second half, but Reagor wasn't able to do much with the volume. The rookie has failed to reach 50 receiving yards in five straight games, posting a poor 14-170-0 line on 27 targets over that stretch, and he has yet to show much chemistry with Jalen Hurts. The duo will have one more chance to get on the same page in 2020 during next week's clash with a Washington team that needs to win to lock up the NFC East title.

Dec 27, 2020 8:17 PM EST

Cleared for Sunday

Reagor (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game in Dallas.

Analysis: A minor ankle injury impacted his practice participation earlier in the week, but Reagor should be fine for his typical role Sunday against the Cowboys. He played 68 and 55 percent of Philadelphia's offensive snaps the past two weeks, catching seven of 12 targets for 95 yards in Jalen Hurts' first two starts. The Eagles have been using a five-receiver rotation, but Reagor has been the closest thing to consistent among the bunch.

Dec 25, 2020 1:01 PM EST

Gets in limited practice

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

Analysis: Though Reagor hasn't practiced fully in either of the Eagles' first two sessions of Week 16, head coach Doug Pederson indicated Wednesday that the rookie wideout would be good to go for Sunday's game at Dallas. So long as Reagor can increase his activity Friday, he should enter the weekend minus an injury designation.

Dec 24, 2020 12:51 PM EST

Logs limited practice Wednesday

Reagor (ankle) was limited at practice Wednesday.

Analysis: Prior to the session, coach Doug Pederson told Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News that Reagor is "fine" as he looks to put an ankle injury suffered this past Sunday at Arizona behind him. With a limited practice in the books, Reagor will look to increase his activity level as the week proceeds.

Dec 23, 2020 1:55 PM EST

Deemed 'fine' for Week 16

Head coach Doug Pederson said that Reagor (ankle) will practice Wednesday and is "fine" as the Eagles begin Week 16 prep, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Analysis: The Eagles will release their first Week 16 injury report later Wednesday, which will confirm the extent of Reagor's participation in practice. Even if Reagor ends up being listed as a limited participant, the ankle injury he picked up in last week's loss to the Cardinals doesn't look as though it will affect his availability for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Through Jalen Hurts' first two starts at quarterback, Reagor has caught seven of 12 targets for 95 yards while chipping in nine yards on the ground.

Dec 23, 2020 7:45 AM EST

Picks up ankle injury

Reagor (ankle) is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Analysis: Reagor secured five of eight targets for 49 yards before being forced out in the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest. The Eagles only have four remaining active receivers in Greg Ward, Alshon Jeffery, Travis Fulgham and Quez Watkins.
