Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor will be full participants in Wednesday’s practice
The Philadelphia Eagles are hoping to get back into the win column in Week 13 versus the Miami Dolphins. Fortunately, it seems the receiving corps will be getting a much-needed boost with the potential return of Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor.
According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, head coach Doug Pederson says both players will be able to get in a full practice:
Eagles coach Doug Pederson provided a relatively positive injury update: WRs Alshon Jeffery (ankle) and Nelson Agholor (knee) will be full participants today. Meanwhile, RB Jordan Howard’s shoulder injury is trending the right way, but he needs to get stronger.
This is certainly an encouraging update for Philadelphia. It is no secret that this offense is in desperate need of some firepower entering the final stretch of the 2019 NFL season. This week’s favorable matchup against Miami is an ideal time for them to get back on track.
Jeffery’s absence has left a notable void in the passing game for quarterback Carson Wentz while dealing with an ankle injury. The Eagles are a much different team without their No. 1 wideout as they have not won a game this season whenever he was sidelined. His return should pay huge dividends in the offense’s attempts to find their rhythm.
Meanwhile, Agholor was sidelined during last week’s loss with a knee injury. He has certainly endured his fair share of struggles throughout the 2019 NFL season. Regardless, he will likely be tasked with resuming his modest role within the offense if he is able to come back.
