According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery underwent foot surgery on Saturday to repair a Lisfranc injury, Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network is reporting.
The hope is that he will be ready for the start of 2020.
Jeffery was on and off the field with various injuries this year, playing in just 10 games and catching 43 passes for 490 yards and four touchdowns in what was his least productive season since his rookie campaign back in 2012.
The 29-year-old spent the first five years of his NFL career with the Bears, making the Pro Bowl in his second season after hauling in 89 receptions for 1,421 yards and seven scores. He then followed that up by snaring 85 balls for 1,133 yards while reaching the end zone 10 times in 2014.
However, due to injuries, Jeffery’s production waned during his final two seasons in Chicago, and in March 2017, he signed with the Eagles and helped them win a Super Bowl during his first year there.
But in 2018 and 2019, Jeffery appeared in just 23 games as a result of injury issues.
The Eagles are 7-7 and will battle the Dallas Cowboys for NFC East supremacy next Sunday.
