2. Will the Philadelphia Eagles receiving corps play a huge role?

Even with Jeffery’s return, most Philly fans would probably rather have Travis Fulgham remain at the primary or X receiver position. He’s earned that. Fans can probably expect Jalen Reagor to see most of his snaps while playing the Y receiver position on the opposite side of the formation.

Reagor is one of the most versatile receivers that the Eagles have, if not the most versatile player on the entire offense, so expect for him to also take a few snaps at the slot receiver position unless Philly chooses to give those snaps to both Greg Ward and John Hightower.

If Jeffery is good to go, he will more than likely be used in situational downs or during certain red zone plays. No one should expect him to be on the field for every offensive snap or for him to take snaps away from Fulgham. If he does, expect there to be some criticism. If number 17 does play, the Eagles could decide to make second-year receiver J.J Arcega-Whiteside inactive for the Week 10 game. No one would bat an eyelash if they did.
