Alshon Jeffery injury: Eagles wide receiver carted off in Giants game

New, comments

Well, sure.

NFL: Chicago Bears at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Early in the second quarter against the Giants, Alshon Jeffery suffered a non-contact injury coming off the line and pulled up and was limping after just a few steps. The wide receiver ended up being carted to the locker room shortly afterward with a foot injury.

Before being sidelined, Jeffery was targeted twice, but had yet to come up with the catch. His injury came on what started off as a promising drive to answer the Giants first touchdown of the game, but after two catches by Zach Ertz to move the sticks, a Greg Ward Jr. score was negated by a (questionable) holding call. The Eagles had to settle for a field goal on the drive, and Jeffery’s size in the end zone was already missed.

With Jeffery hurt, the Eagles are down to just Ward and JJ Arcega-Whiteside as the only two healthy wide receivers. The team also considers third string tight end Joshua Perkins as an emergency receiver.

Ugh, as if the wide receiver group wasn’t already a disaster without Jeffery having issues, too.
