Philadelphia Eagles injury news: A timetable for Jalen Reagor’s return

Here’s an update Philadelphia Eagles fans are sure to find interesting.

Well, how about we call this one of those ‘good news and bad news’ things? The good news for the Philadelphia Eagles is Jalen Reagor won’t miss the entire season, and probably won’t require surgery (even though, according to reports like this one from Geoff Mosher, the diagnosis of his shoulder injury is a torn labrum). The bad news is he may still miss anywhere from the first two to the first four games of the season.

There’s hope though. Right around lunchtime on the East Coast, Jeff McLane of added to the conversation stating the Eagles are ‘hoping he’s out for only two games tops’.

Here’s what all of this means for the Philadelphia Eagles going forward.

When the team took the field for practice on the first day of September, Reagor was present, as were Carson Wentz and Dallas Goedert, who both missed Sunday’s scrimmage at Lincoln Finacial Field with injuries. That’s also good news.

On the other hand, while Wentz and Goedert were both able to practice, Reagor spent most of his time in a bucket hat watching the session and doing ‘mental reps’. He’s been given a ‘week-to-week’ designation until Philly’s medical staff make the determination that ’18’ is ready to go.

He’ll miss Week 1’s game versus the Washington Football Team for sure. If McLane’s information is correct (fingers crossed), we may also be able to rule him out of Week 2’s clash with the Los Angeles Rams.

That one will serve as the Eagles home opener, even though it seems as though the idea isn’t as attractive as it once was, seeing as how there won’t be any fans in attendance, unless, of course, you’re counting those cardboard cutouts. Past that, we’ll have to wait and see what happens in Week 3 and beyond and how these young Eagles receivers perform in Reagor’s absence. Cue the ‘next-man-up mantra though none of us thought we’d have to do so this early.
