Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) remains in a sling but hopes to be ready for the preseason.
He's six weeks removed from surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder and has already been ruled out for OTAs. Jeffery admits he hasn't done much since the surgery but as of now, there's no concern about his status for Week 1. The South Carolina alum agreed to a four-year extension in December, keeping him in Philadelphia through his age-31 season. Apr 6 - 3:49 PM

Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) is expected to be ready for Week 1.

Jeffery is out at least six months after rotator cuff surgery. He'll likely spend all of training camp and the preseason on the active/PUP list, but most signs point to him being back for the start of the season. The missed time could be a concern given Jeffery's history of conditioning issues and setbacks. The Eagles are counting on Jeffery to stay healthy after signing him to a four-year, $52 million extension.

The Philadelphia Inquirer's Les Bowen reports "the goal" is for Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) to be ready for Week 1 of the regular season, though he "could" be ready during the preseason.

Jeffery underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff on Wednesday and could be sidelined upwards of six months. Even if he returns at some point during the middle of the preseason, it sounds like Jeffery is going to miss all of OTAs, minicamp, and training camp. The good news, however, is that the Eagles are bringing back the exact same offensive system, and Jeffery doesn't have to learn anything new on the field. However, there's a chance he could be rusty and not completely in game shape by the time Week 1 rolls around. Overall, it's not a huge concern.

Alshon Jeffery underwent surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his shoulder on Wednesday.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Jeffery tore the rotator cuff in training camp last summer and played through it all the way through the Super Bowl. If true, that's incredibly impressive. Jeffery did miss time at the beginning of August with a shoulder injury but was never listed on the injury report with it during the season. Rotator cuff surgeries come with lengthy recovery timetables, so this could put Jeffery behind the eight ball at the start of camp this summer. He's a candidate to open camp on active/PUP but should be ready for Week 1.

Alshon Jeffery caught 3-of-8 targets for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Super Bowl 52 win over the Patriots.

Jeffery picked up the Eagles’ initial first down of the game on a second-reaction play with Nick Foles on the run, the completion gaining 17 yards. Jeffery was targeted on a first-quarter fade, but Patriots CB Eric Rowe had good coverage. Jeffery got the better of Rowe one drive later, going over Rowe’s head for a 34-yard touchdown. The Pats immediately assigned Stephon Gilmore to Jeffery in shadow coverage, and Gilmore silenced his old college teammate. Although Jeffery’s final stat line (57/789/13.8/9) in his first year in Philly doesn’t stand out, his role grew as the season progressed, and Jeffery was a beast in the playoffs with a 12/219/3 receiving mark on 18 targets from Nick Foles. Still only 28, Jeffery signed a four-year, $52 million extension in December and should see an uptick in production in his second year with the team.
Feb 4 - 10:39 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-5 targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' NFC title game win over the Vikings.

With Xavier Rhodes temporarily sidelined by a toe injury, Jeffery whipped 39-year-old CB Terence Newman for a 53-yard touchdown bomb late in the second quarter, giving the Eagles a 21-7 lead. Jeffery scored again early in the fourth, skying over Trae Waynes when Minnesota’s zone coverage forced Rhodes away from Alshon. In a picture-perfect game by Nick Foles, Jeffery was his most-perfect target recipient. Expect Jeffery to draw primary coverage from Stephon Gilmore in the Super Bowl.
Jan 21 - 9:43 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 4-of-5 targets for 61 yards in the Eagles' Divisional Round win over the Falcons.

Jeffery led the Eagles in receiving on an afternoon where coach Doug Pederson did all he could to hide Nick Foles. The formula will be similar for the NFC Championship Game.
Jan 13 - 8:43 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught one pass for eight yards in Week 17 against Dallas.

Jeffery only played a few series before being rested. He closes out the regular season with a 57/789/9 line as the clear No. 1 receiver. The Eagles are on a bye next week, but Jeffery will be a shy-away DFS option for the Divisional Round with Nick Foles at quarterback.

Alshon Jeffery didn't register a catch on two targets in the Eagles' 19-10, Week 16 win over the Raiders on Christmas night.

CB Sean Smith trailed Jeffery most of the night. Nick Foles' simply terrible play was probably more of a factor in Jeffery getting shut out, honestly, and Foles missed Jeffery horribly on what should have been a second-half touchdown. The ball was thrown way behind Jeffery at the goal line. Jeffery will look to rebound next week against Dallas if Philly plays its starters.
Tue, Dec 26, 2017 12:04:00 AM

Alshon Jeffery caught 4-of-10 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 15 win over the Giants.

Jeffery was one of four different Eagles pass catchers to haul in touchdowns from Nick Foles. The Eagles also got Jeffery involved on a bubble screen he took for a gain of 19, although Jeffery was otherwise held to short gains. Jeffery will be a strong WR2 when Philadelphia hosts Oakland in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 05:00:00 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 5-of-11 targets for 52 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' Week 14 win over the Rams.

The score was Jeffery's eighth of the season. He made a shoestring catch in the end zone. It came with a cost, as it ended up being Carson Wentz's final play of the day before departing with a knee injury. There's worry Wentz has torn his ACL. Nick Foles would be a drastic downgrade for the entire Eagles offense, and make Jeffery a risky WR2 for the duration of the fantasy playoffs.
Sun, Dec 10, 2017 07:57:00 PM

Alshon Jeffery caught 4-of-6 targets for 61 yards in Week 13 against Seattle.

Jeffery managed to salvage his night after not getting any first-half targets. He came to life over the final two quarters, but this was a down game for him. Jeffery remains one of the hotter receivers in the league with 50 yards or a touchdown in five straight weeks. He’ll remain a WR1 for Week 14 against the Rams.
Mon, Dec 4, 2017 12:14:00 AM

Eagles signed Alshon Jeffery to a four-year, $52 million extension through 2021.

The deal includes $27 million guaranteed. The Eagles made it a point to acquire more weapons for Carson Wentz this offseason, and Jeffery was the centerpiece. He started the season slowly, but he has turned it on the last several games, apparently enough to convince the Eagles to make a long-term commitment. With Zach Ertz also under contract through 2021, Nelson Agholor under contract for at least one more year, and rookie Mack Hollins looking like a quality player, Philly should have a solid receiver corps for the next several years.

Alshon Jeffery is no longer on the Eagles' Week 13 injury report.

Jeffery missed some early-week practice reps with a foot injury. He will be all systems go for Sunday's date with the Richard Sherman-less Seahawks.
Fri, Dec 1, 2017 01:59:00 PM

Alshon Jeffery (foot) participated in Thursday's practice.

Jeffery was limited on Wednesday, but was upgraded to full today. On a hot streak and with the Seahawks struggling with injuries in the secondary, Jeffery is a borderline WR1 this week.
