The Philadelphia Eagles’ road to the Super Bowl is full of intriguing stories, but Alshon Jeffery playing the entire 2017 season with a torn rotator cuff has soared to the top.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport broke the news Jeffery suffered the injury during training camp yet delayed surgery until now.
Jeffery appeared in all 16 games last season, collecting 57 catches for 789 yards and a team-high nine touchdowns. He notched 12 receptions, 219 yards and three scores in the playoffs, grabbing three passes for 73 yards and a touchdown during the Super Bowl.
The revelation can be added to Philadelphia’s improbable championship run, which included a season-ending injury to star quarterback Carson Wentz.
