There’s fear that Alshon Jeffery may have suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon during Monday’s game for the Philadelphia Eagles against the New York Giants.

Just when it seemed like the wide receiver situation couldn’t get any more frustrating for the Philadelphia Eagles, there’s fear surrounding Alshon Jeffery possibly suffering a season-ending injury.

After missing a few key games, Jeffery was able to return to action in Week 13 against the Miami Dolphins.

And with the Eagles hurting at wideout once again for Monday’s contest against the New York Giants with Nelson Agholor out, Philadelphia knew they would need a big game from Jeffery to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Unfortunately, Jeffery would end up leaving the game in the first half with what appeared to be a foot injury, and even though nothing is set in stone at the moment, one report from NBC 10’s John Clark fears the Eagles wideout may have suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon.

Keep in mind that nothing is set in stone at the moment, and this is pure speculation, but if this does end up being true for Jeffery, this would be another crushing blow for Philadelphia in the passing game.

No one needs to explain just how valuable Jeffery’s presence has been to the Eagles’ passing game over the last three years, and with the team currently in the hunt for the NFC East title, this is the last news they need to be dealing with.

Even more frustrating, one can only imagine what the timetable for recovery would be with Jeffery if he did in fact suffer the ruptured Achilles tendon since this could very well impact the wideout’s plans for the beginning of the 2020 season.

Obviously, Jeffery’s health is always going to be a top priority, and football fans hope for nothing but the best with this latest injury since he’s already dealt with a few tough injuries over the years.

But unfortunately, this latest injury could be the worst one yet for Jeffery if this report turns out to be accurate, as Eagles fans will be holding their breath to see just how serious this is.

Either way, even if this somehow finds a way to be minor for Jeffery, Philadelphia desperately still needs help at wideout during the final stretch just to have a fighting chance against Dallas.
