A star wide receiver will miss at least the first two games of the upcoming NFL season. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen the Eagles will be without Alshon Jeffery for the start of the year.
It's a tough break for a team that hoped to have its top wideout on the field at the start of the season. Eagles coach Doug Pederson remained mum on the injury, but it appears serious enough to hold Jeffery out for a few games.
Jeffery underwent shoulder surgery in February after playing the full regular season with the injury.
Here's the report from Schefter.
Earlier this week, Pederson addressed Jeffery's status.
"We're just going to continue to monitor him and we'll see where he is at next week and make a decision. But right now, he's progressing well; we just got to see his day by day."
