Eagles Have Multiple Injuries in First Half vs. Falcons
Philadelphia Eagles wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and DeSean Jackson both left the team’s Sunday night game against the Atlanta Falcons with injuries and are questionable to return.
Jeffery has a calf injury and Jackson is out with a groin injury.
Jackson left the field and tried to return, but had to leave the field again, slamming his helmet onto the bench, before taking a seat.
The Eagles are down to Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins as their top-two wideouts, however Agholor took a shot in the end zone and had walked off the field. His status is unknown for the second half. Rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside is also getting reps at wide receiver.
Also on the sideline for the Eagles are starting center Jason Kelce and backup tight end Dallas Goedert, who got hurt during the pregame warmups, with a calf injury.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz also left the field for a few play and went into the blue medical tent to be evaluated for a concussion. Backup Josh McCown entered the game and played a few snaps before Went returned.
