Noted foot specialist Robert Anderson performed the surgery, which is said to be a Lisfranc injury. The hope is he’ll be ready to go by the start of the 2020 season, the tweet went on to say. As for this year, Ward has emerged as the team's WR1, and it's likely to stay that way for the remainder of the season.
Complicating matters is the continued absence of Nelson Agholor, the Eagles’ other starting wide receiver. He missed the Giants game with a knee injury he suffered in the Dolphins game a week ago, and Pederson said there’s no guarantee he’ll be ready to play against the Redskins.
“That one’s still up in the air,” he said. “We’ve just got to continue to work through his injury and where he’s at and continue to have conversations with him and see where he is prior to this week.”
Agholor is dealing with a knee injury. Whiteside appeared to grab his hamstring in overtime but it looks like he'll be a go in Week 15. Agholor, Whiteside and Ward are the Birds top-three WRs right now, but it's possible the Eagles again go with three TEs meaning Goedert and Perkins could be more involved.
It was trending toward this since Jeffery was seen being carted off on Monday night. Garafolo said they’re still gathering opinions about what exactly is wrong with his foot but he’s done for the year. The Eagles WR position is in dire need with three games remaining. Agholor was inactive on MNF and Arcega-Whiteside was seen limping off the field in overtime with what looked like a hamstring injury.
