Announced Tuesday, Eagles no. 1 wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is expected to miss at least two weeks of the NFL Regular Season due to the late recovery of his rotator cuff surgery, per ESPN Insider Adam Schefter.
Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery is expected to miss at least the first two games of the season, but the team will activate him to the 53-man roster this weekend with optimism he could be back by week 3, per @mortreport and me.

Without the presence of Jeffery majority of the game, the Eagles averaged only about nine points per game, including preseason. Hopefully, wideout Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace, and Mack Hollins can step it up.
In week one of the regular season, the Eagles look to showdown the Atlantic Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. I predict Eagles lose the first game of the season (Falcons) because of the concerns of Eagles starting quarterback Carson Wentz playing and Jeffery’s injury.
Hopefully we can see Jeffery, age 28, out on the practice field, sooner than later.
