There’s certainly reason to be concerned about Alshon Jeffery. He told Jen Vrentas of Sports Illustrated after the game Thursday night: “Some days I feel great, and some days ... a shoulder injury is pretty tough,” adding that he’s still a few weeks away from getting back on the field.
The Eagles know they need help at the position. They recently signed Miller to the practice squad but reports say he could get a shot sooner than later. Agholor is the team's top WR but only had a line of 8-33-0 as Nick Foles and the offense struggled in Week 1. Carter played 53 snaps but only caught one pass last week.
The Eagles cut veteran wide receiver Markus Wheaton on their way to 53 players, but they reversed course on Tuesday.
Wheaton is back with the team after they placed tight end Richard Rodgers on injured reserve. Rodgers has a knee injury and could return after eight weeks on the list should the Eagles decide to use one of their two return slots.
Wheaton is back with Jeffery and Hollins ruled out for Thursday, the story said. Wheaton suffered through a hamstring injury, the same injury which limited him last year with the Bears. Wheaton likely won't make a huge fantasy impact despite his return.
After spending the first four seasons of his career in Pittsburgh, Wheaton took a one-year sabbatical from The Keystone Stone and played for Chicago last season. This seems like nothing more than a depth chart signing, so we aren't all that eager in considering Wheaton a fantasy option this season.
The Bears confirmed that wide receiver Kevin White is headed to injured reserve for the third time in three NFL seasons.
White left Sunday’s loss to the Falcons with an injury to his shoulder and Bears coach John Fox announced on Monday that the wideout suffered a fractured scapula. White will be placed on injured reserve and there’s still a determination to be made about whether or not he needs surgery.
