WR - PHI - OUT
Week 3 Outlook
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.
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.
Eagles rookie WR Jalen Reagor is not participating in practice on Wednesday.
We have not heard of any issues with Reagor since the shoulder injury he suffered in the preseason. This is something to monitor during practice on Thursday and Friday. Keep an eye on Reagor’s status in the teams’ next couple practices.
Eagles wide receiver Jalen Reagor caught four passes for 41 yards in the team's Week 2 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.
Reagor displayed big-play ability in Week 1 while only catching one pass. In Week 2, he caught all four of his targets for just 41 yards. He has seen steady playing time through his first two weeks, but the production hasn't been there just yet. He will look to turn things around when the Eagles take on the Bengals in Week 3.
Eagles rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor caught one pass for 55 yards in Sunday's loss to the Washington Football Team.
Reagor was targeted four times but managed just the one long reception on Sunday. Wentz targeted him deep another time but was largely restricted by atrocious offensive line play, which limited the shots they were able to take down the field.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting Eagles WR Jalen Reagor (shoulder) will play in Week 1.
While there was skepticism about his playing status for the season opener at Washington due to his ailing shoulder, Reagor is good to go for the Week 1 matchup after practicing in full since Wednesday. The first-round rookie will be needed in the passing game after Miles Sanders was shockingly ruled out with his hamstring. With Kendall Fuller unlikely to play, the Washington defense, which is expected to improve under new HC Ron Rivera, and DC Jack Del Rio, will be shorthanded in the secondary, which bodes well for Reagor in his pro debut. Reagor is an upside WR3/ Flex option for Week 1.
