Eagles Place Jalen Reagor On IR

The Eagles have placed Jalen Reagor on the injured reserve list, per a club announcement. The wide receiver will use the time to heal up following surgery to repair a torn ligament in his thumb.

Reagor played through the pain in Week 2, but it wasn’t a sustainable situation. Based on the projections from earlier this month, Reagor is likely to miss at least another month as he recovers. Reportedly, the Eagles are planning to bring Reagor back sometime after the Week 9 bye, which could mean that he’ll re-debut on Oct. 22 when the Eagles face the Giants at MetLife Stadium.

Already down Alshon Jeffery coming into the season, Philadelphia has also lost several starting offensive linemen in Brandon Brooks, Andre Dillard and Isaac Seumalo. Jeffery is still working his way back, and the Eagles are 0-2-1 heading into Week 4. Next up – a Sunday night showdown with the 49ers, in San Francisco.

The first-round speedster out of TCU caught five passes for 96 yards in the first two games of the season. Without him, they’ll need DeSean Jackson and the rest of the WR group to deliver — and better play from Carson Wentz.

      And you could’ve shared your crystal ball with them prior to draft day.

        Jefferson was mocked to the Eagles a lot. They always think they are the smartest people in the room and get cute on draft day. Very few hits on draft picks lately. Several misses on key positions like DE, LT, CB, WR.

          this is the main reason we need Holly roseman to relinquish his draft duties he can pull out some nice trades he can make some nice signings and whatnot but when it comes to drafts man he has whipped on just about every single pic you know you can debate what’s going on with once right now mile Sanders looks like a keeper Dallas got it looks like a keeper Jerry still out on just went Avanti Maddox but other than that I don’t recall anyone really been impactful for this organization now

        Its not hindsight when people questioned it at the time. For example, Metcalf was never going to be a top 10 pick like some thought but he was still a great prospect and passing on him for JJ A-W was beyond a bad pick at the time.

        • Oooof

          It’s still hindsight, and 7 different teams took wide receivers ahead of Metcalf, let alone teams that could have used him but also passed. If other teams knew he’d be this good as a pro, he would have gone earlier.

        • Polish Hammer

          It is hindsight when he had no preseason and the regular season barely started when he got hurt and you’re basing that comment on an injury. I think he’ll be a good WR in this league, time will tell.

    • Oooof

      And after 12 career receptions from Jefferson, it’s clear they should’ve, right? How many great receivers do little their first year? A lot of Packers fans thought Davante Adams was doomed after a year.

    • Oooof

      Three games into the 2014 season, you could’ve just as reasonably said the Giants should’ve drafted Kelvin Benjamin instead of OBJ.

        • Oooof

          Isn’t IR only three games this year? Even then, it’s fine to think a receiver is going to be great because his rookie year is great, but thinking a receiver is going to bust because his rookie year is mediocre or injured is unrealistic to the history of receivers. Larry Fitzgerald barely caught half his passes his rookie year. Mike Williams was hurt in his. Herman Moore was a nightmare in his. Even some guys who excel early, like Michael Thomas, have to run much less sophisticated route trees in their rookie years. Judging receivers after less than a fifth of a rookie season is unfair.

    It may take more than another Miracle in the Meadowlands to save this season.

    I am not a medical professional.
    Based on the picture of this IR list player,
    Does it look like REAGOR MORTIS has set in ??

    Howie Roseman keeps outsmarting himself. Passed on Metcalf for Arcegia-Whiteside and no one had Reagor over Jefferson.

    • mlbnyyfan

      It’s a shame the NFL EAST is a dumpster fire. Cowboys will win division with 8-8 record.

    • Oooof

      PFF had Reagor ahead of Jefferson on their big board among receivers. So did Jonah Tuls.

    they should have traded their first and second round pick like was rumored to move up with Atlanta at number 16 and draft CD land like everyone expected and thought they should have cd land will help disorganization more this year in incoming years more than Jalen rager and Jalen hurts will

    I see JJ Arcega-Whiteside missed practice today…how could they tell the invisible receiver wasn’t there?
