It appears Philadelphia Eagles fans will get their wish. Alshon Jeffery will play in Week 4 versus the Tennessee Titans.

Well, most of us probably could have figured this one on our own had we taken the time to think about it. If a torn rotator cuff couldn’t keep Alshon Jeffery out of action, there’s no way an ‘illness’ was going to do it. About three hours prior to kickoff in Nashville, Tennessee, we learned that Jeffery will, indeed, make his season debut at wide receiver for the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4 versus the Tennessee Titans.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen was among the first with the news.

Here’s a post from his official Twitter account:

Let’s get you caught up on some other injuries as well.

Talk had been swirling around this one ever since the Eagles released a final injury report a couple of days ago where they listed Jeffery as questionable. In addition to Jeffery, they also listed running back Corey Clement as questionable with a quadriceps injury. Nathan Gerry is also listed as questionable as he continues to deal with issues with his groin.

Philly’s without Rodney McLeod for the foreseeable future as the team placed him on their injured reserve list, and Darren Sproles has been ruled out as well as he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Philly, brings back a familiar face.

In other news, Philly, with the additional roster space created by Rodney McLeod’s injury, decided to move in the direction of bringing in another wide receiver. This one’s a familiar one.

Deandre Carter was reactivated to the 53-man roster following an emotional two weeks that saw him make the Eagles roster, get waived after two games, a re-sign with the practice squad ten days ago.

Take a look:

His head has got to be spinning at this point, but look at it this way. At least he’s not at home sitting on the couch.
