Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery still expects to miss a few weeks

The Philadelphia Eagles are already without starting quarterback Carson Wentz for the foreseeable future, and they will also be minus wide receiver Alshon Jeffery for an extended period of time.

Jeffery underwent rotator cuff surgery during the offseason and he apparently won’t be returning for a few more weeks. Jeffery spoke out on how his rehabilitation process is coming along.

“Some days I feel great, and some days … a shoulder injury is pretty tough,” he said, via Jenny Vrentas of The MMQB.”

Jeffery has struggled to stay healthy for nearly his entire NFL career that began back in 2012. Though, he did have a full healthy season in 2017, which was his first year in Philadelphia.

His absence from the field does little to help an Eagles offense that struggled big time in Thursday’s season opener against the Atlanta Falcons. Thankfully, the team pulled off a last-minute win. But quarterback Nick Foles could have certainly benefited from having Jeffery on the field.

When Jeffery returns, he will look to build on the 789 yards and nine touchdowns he tallied in 2018.
