Alshon Jeffery’s status for next two games in doubt due to calf strain
Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery’s injury is not major, but it’s certainly come at a bad time.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Jeffery suffered a calf strain Sunday night against the Atlanta Falcons. While the calf injury isn’t severe, it puts his status for the next two games in doubt with the Eagles set to play twice in ten days.
#Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is dealing with a calf strain, source said, following Sunday night football. It’s not major, but with two games in 10 days, the timing is bad. His status for those is in some doubt.

Jeffery’s status for Week 3 against the Detroit Lions would be questionable as is. Philadelphia then will play the following Thursday against Green Bay, leaving the wide receiver with very little turnaround time. It may well be that we don’t see him play again until Week 5.
Jeffery opened the season with a five catch, 49 yard performance, along with a touchdown. He joins a long list of injured Eagles players, as the team’s depth is being significantly tested.
