EAGLES ACTIVATE OVERPAID, OVERRATED JEFFERY: FOR WHO, FOR WHAT!

Says the Inky’s Jeff McLane:

Alshon Jeffery officially started practicing Sept. 24 in a limited capacity as the Eagles headed into a Week 3 matchup against the Bengals.

He remained limited the next two weeks until a non-COVID-19-related illness kept him out of practice and was cited by coach Doug Pederson as a reason for keeping him out for the Oct. 11 game at Pittsburgh.

Last week, Jeffery took repetitions with the scout team but apparently wasn’t healthy enough to do so with the first team and was inactive for Sunday’s game against the Ravens.

Pederson’s latest explanation, before the receiver was officially ruled out for tonight’s game against the New York Giants, was the “short week.”

“It’s just hard to get him the reps that he needs,” Pederson said.

It was a laughable response considering Jeffery has had seven weeks to get the reps he needs.

But if Pederson is referring only to his foot injury, it only emphasizes how mistaken the Eagles were about his recovery.
