In a recent interview, Eagles WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside opened up about his battle with injuries throughout the 2019 season, even stating that he needed help going to the bathroom in the morning at times. (John Clark on Twitter)
Arcega-Whiteside went on to say how difficult it was to form an on-field trust with QB Carson Wentz due to his injuries and inconsistent play. Even though the former second-round pick out of Stanford played all 16 games in his rookie year with the Eagles, he only managed to catch 10 balls for 169 yards and a touchdown. He brings a unique skill-set to a team that struggled at the wide receiver position last year due to injuries, but Arcega-Whiteside will have his work cut out for him this season as the team addressed the position in the off-season with the additions of Jalen Reagor and Marquise Goodwin. With a healthy Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson, as well as Wentz’ two favorite tight end targets Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert, JJAW may find himself on the outside looking in unless he can develop a rapport with his quarterback early in the season.
