The “early word” on Philadelphia Eagles rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor’s shoulder injury is that he’s “probably out about four weeks.” This much is being reported by Geoff Mosher.

Reagor also posted an encouraging message on Twitter:

Assuming the reported timeline holds true, Reagor could miss the first two games of the 2020 NFL season.

The Eagles are currently two weeks away from their Week 1 game against Washington Football Team. The Eagles will then host the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2. Perhaps Reagor will be back in time for when the Eagles play the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.

On one hand, it’s good to hear that Reagor’s injury isn’t more severe. It’s also nice to know that the Eagles’ receivers have performed well in training camp.

On the other hand, Reagor was having a good summer and being without him isn’t ideal. Hopefully his shoulder pain doesn’t end up lingering throughout the season.

Reagor and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside have been rotating at the first team X receiver position during training camp. Thus, Reagor’s injury could make JJAW the full-time player there in the short-term. Hopefully the rookie is back sooner than later.

DeSean Jackson figures to play at Z while Greg Ward is favored to be the Eagles’ slot receiver. John Hightower has performed well in camp and is pushing for playing time.
