Nelson Agholor: Deal with Raiders worth $1.05 million

Agholor's one-year, $1.05 million contract with the Raiders includes $887,500 guaranteed, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Tafur expects Agholor to return punts for the Raiders as well as provide the team with added wideout depth, but the terms of the 2015 first-rounder's deal demonstrates that the the free-agent market for his services wasn't especially robust. Agholor -- who caught 39 passes for 363 yards and three TDs in 11 games for the Eagles last season -- will now via for slotting in a Las Vegas receiving corps that also includes Hunter Renfrow, Tyrell Williams and Zay Jones.

Nelson Agholor: Joins Las Vegas

Agholor (knee) signed a one-year contract with the Raiders on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: It's a fresh start for the embattled 2015 first-round pick, as Agholor had essentially run his course with the Eagles after failing to record over 800 receiving yards in each of the past five seasons. It's hard to identify an obvious role, however, for Agholor, given Tyrell Williams remains as the obvious field stretcher while 2019 fifth-round pick, Hunter Renfrow, emerged as a valuable underneath route runner. While Agholor probably figures to be a quality receiving option for whoever wins the starting job between Derek Carr and Marcus Mariota, it's hard to suggest he'll be any sort of fantasy difference maker, especially if the team chooses to invest in a rookie receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft.

Nelson Agholor: Meeting with knee specialist

Agholor said Monday that he'll meet with a specialist in Pittsburgh this week to received more information about his lingering right knee injury, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

Analysis: Agholor's injury sidelined him for the final quarter of the Eagles' regular season along with Sunday's 17-9 wild-card loss to the Seahawks, but the wideout noted previously that he first hurt the ankle in the team's Week 6 loss to the Vikings back on Oct. 13. The 26-year-old indicated he's still dealing with swelling in the knee, so surgery could be an option if the specialist determines that extended rest alone won't remedy the swelling. Agholor, who caught 39 of 69 targets for 363 yards and three touchdowns in his 11 appearances in 2019, is set to become a free agent in March.

Nelson Agholor: Won't play Sunday

Agholor (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's playoff game against the Seahawks after not practicing this week.

Analysis: Agholor will thus miss his fifth straight game, which sets the stage for the likes of Greg Ward, Deontay Burnett, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis to handle the team's wide receiver duties this weekend.

Nelson Agholor: Remains sidelined Thursday

Agholor (knee) didn't practice Thursday, Daniel Gallen of The Harrisburg Patriot-News reports.

Analysis: Agholor is trending toward missing Sunday's playoff game against the Seahawks and could be ruled out for the contest as soon as Friday. If he remains out this weekend, Greg Ward, Deontay Burnett, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis would handle the team's wideout duties versus Seattle.

Nelson Agholor: Absent from practice

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

Analysis: Agholor's absence from a walkthrough practice suggests he isn't expected to return for Sunday's playoff game against the Seahawks. He missed the final four games of the regular season, which paved the way for Greg Ward to emerge as a steady contributor in the Eagles offense.

Nelson Agholor: Sitting out fourth straight game

Agholor (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

Analysis: Agholor will unsurprising don street clothes for a fourth straight game after failing to take any reps during practice this week. According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Agholor is still contending with considerable swelling in his knee, which may cloud his status for any postseason games that follow Week 17. With Agholor sidelined and Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (abdomen) on injured reserve, Greg Ward profiles as the Eagles' No. 1 wideout Sunday.

December 27, 2019 12:35 PM EST

Nelson Agholor: Not spotted at Friday's session

Agholor (knee) was not spotted at Friday's practice, according to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Analysis: It's looking like Agholor will miss both another day and another week of practice, which doesn't bode well for his chances of returning to action in Week 17. The Eagles will reveal if he has any chance to do so when they put out their final injury report following Friday's session.

Nelson Agholor: No practice Thursday

Agholor (knee) didn't participate in practice Thursday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Agholor continues to rehab a knee injury, keeping him away from the practice field since his last appearance Week 13. According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, there's an expectation Agholor misses a fourth consecutive contest and fifth game in six Sunday against the Giants in New York. It remains to be seen whether or not the Eagles tab Agholor as questionable (as he has been during his absence) or actually rules him out ahead of the regular-season finale.

Nelson Agholor: Opens week as non-participant

Agholor (knee) was listed as a non-participant Wednesday on the Eagles' estimated practice report.

Analysis: Per Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Agholor is expected to miss a fourth straight game Sunday against the Giants, and the wideout's absence from practice to begin the week adds further credence to that notion. With Agholor trending toward an inactive status, the Eagles will likely be forced to rely on a quartet of relatively unproven options at receiver in Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (foot), Robert Davis and Deontay Burnett in Week 17.

Nelson Agholor: Sidelined again Week 16

Agholor (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

Analysis: Despite not logging a practice rep since suffering a knee injury Week 13, Agholor hasn't been ruled out for a return, but likely only if the Eagles reach the postseason. On the other hand, coach Doug Pederson bandied about potentially shutting down Agholor for the season late this past week. Once again, the Eagles will roll with just three healthy wide receivers (Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis) on game day.

Nelson Agholor: Unlikely to play Sunday

Agholor (knee) isn't expected to play Sunday against the Cowboys, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Coach Doug Pederson said Friday the team may need to have a conversation about shutting Agholor down for the season, so it's not a major surprise he may not be suiting up despite being listed as questionable. Assuming he is inactive, the Eagles will be left with Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis at wide receiver for the pivotal matchup with Dallas.

Nelson Agholor: Gets 'questionable' tag for Sunday

Agholor (knee) is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Cowboys.

Analysis: Earlier Friday, coach Doug Pederson noted the Eagles may have to have a conversation about shutting Agholor down for the season due to how his knee injury has worsened, per Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger. On the other hand, Pederson is "still hopeful" Agholor will be able to return in the final two games of the regular season and potentially in the postseason, if the team happens to win the NFC East. Agholor didn't practice this week, so if he logs a third DNP in a row Sunday, the offense will be down to just Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis at wide receiver.

December 20, 2019 12:51 PM EST

Nelson Agholor: Could be shut down

Head coach Doug Pederson said Friday morning that Agholor (knee) could be shut down for the season, Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: Agholor remains unable to practice, and while Pederson is "still hopeful" he will play again this season, the soreness in his knee is apparently not getting any better, and could in fact be getting worse. Agholor has not been ruled out for Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys as of yet, but Pederson's comments don't provide much hope that he will take the field.

December 20, 2019 7:45 AM EST

Nelson Agholor: No practice Thursday

Agholor (knee) was held out of practice Thursday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Analysis: Held out of practice since hurting his knee Week 13, Agholor remains in a holding pattern as the Eagles prepare for Sunday's divisional showdown with the Cowboys. Per Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal, coach Doug Pederson referred to Agholor's situation as "status quo" this week, another sign that he's trending toward an absence. Ultimately, the team may make a ruling on Agholor's availability as soon as the release of Friday's injury report.

December 19, 2019 11:11 AM EST

Nelson Agholor: DNP to start week

Agholor (knee) did not participate in Wednesday's walk-through practice.

Analysis: Agholor hasn't practiced in any capacity since Week 13's tilt against the Dolphins. Coach Doug Pederson called the 2015 first-round pick "status quo" Wednesday, per Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal. He'll have two more chances to up his level of activity prior to Sunday's must-win tilt against the Cowboys, but it looks as though he's trending toward a lack of availability for Week 16. The Eagles will rely on Greg Ward, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Robert Davis at wide receiver as long as Agholor is unable to go.

December 18, 2019 12:45 PM EST

Nelson Agholor: Downgraded to out

Agholor (knee) was downgraded to out ahead of Sunday's matchup against the Redskins.

Analysis: Unable to practice all week, it always seemed unlikely Agholor would be able to suit up Sunday, and the Eagles thankfully ended the suspense early. With Alshon Jeffery (foot) also out, the trio of J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward and Robert Davis will be the only three active wide receivers on the roster, although both tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert are expected to factor heavily in the team's passing attack.

December 14, 2019 9:40 AM EST

Nelson Agholor: Questionable for Week 15

The Eagles list Agholor (knee) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Redskins.

Analysis: The questionable designation implies that Agholor has a 50-50 shot to play in Week 15, but in reality, his odds of suiting are probably less than that after the knee injury prevented him from practicing Wednesday through Friday. With fellow starting wideout Alshon Jeffery (foot) heading to injured reserve earlier this week, the Eagles could be down to the unproven trio of J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward and Robert Davis as their regular options in three-receiver sets. All of those players would benefit from added snaps and targets if Agholor is sidelined, though the Eagles will likely aim to prioritize tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert in the passing game.

December 13, 2019 12:31 PM EST

Nelson Agholor: Still not practicing

Agholor (knee) did not take part in Friday's practice, according to Zack Rosenblatt of The Newark Star-Ledger.

Analysis: Agholor missed another week of practice sessions, which certainly does not bode well for his chances of returning to action Sunday against Washington. The Eagles will reveal Agholor's official status for Week 15 after Friday's session comes to a close.

December 13, 2019 8:43 AM EST

Nelson Agholor: Sidelined again

Agholor (knee) didn't practice Thursday, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Analysis: Agholor missed two of the past three games and hasn't practiced in any capacity since Week 13. He hopes to return for Sunday's contest at Washington, but the continued absence from practice suggests it's no better than a 50/50 proposition. With Alshon Jeffery (foot) placed on injured reserve, the Eagles may be left with J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward and Robert Davis as their only healthy wideouts for Week 15.
