Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor reportedly has a UCL tear in his thumb and is expected to be placed on injured reserve, according to multiple reports. Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia adds that this injury likely requires surgery to repair, while NFL insider Adam Caplan reports that the expectation is Reagor misses 6-to-8 weeks with the injury.

Fantasy Impact:

Through two games this season, Reagor has caught five of his eight targets for 96 yards. The Eagles drafted him in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft, with the expectation that he could step in and immediately contribute as a deep threat in their passing game. He is already dealing with a shoulder injury, though that has not caused him to miss any time. With Reagor out, DeSean Jackson, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Greg Ward, and John Hightower are the team's only healthy wide receivers. Deontay Burnett is on the practice squad and could be called up to the active roster this week, while fellow injured wideout Alshon Jeffery remains out of practice but is expected to return at some point in the next few weeks.
