Jeffery brought in eight of 12 targets for 74 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' 34-13 win over the Giants on Thursday. Jeffery was targeted a team-high number of times, and he brought in scoring darts of 13 and one yard from Carson Wentz to notch his first multi-touchdown game of the season. The 28-year-old wideout has hit his stride quickly after starting his season late while recovering from rotator cuff surgery, logging eight catches in two of his first three games and seeing no fewer than eight targets in any contest thus far. Jeffery will look to continue the hot start to his 2018 campaign against the Panthers in a Week 7 matchup.
Jeffery caught two of eight targets for 39 yards in Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Vikings. Jeffery garnered plenty of attention from standout cornerback Xavier Rhodes on the day and was rarely able to break free aside from a 31-yard gain in the third quarter. The veteran enjoyed an excellent season debut last week when he torched the Titans, so it seems this dud could merely be attributed to a tough matchup. As such, Jeffery could be considered a bounce-back candidate Thursday against the Giants.
Jeffery (chest) was a full participant in Thursday's practice. Jeffery missed Wednesday's practice with the previously unreported chest injury, but his presence on the field a day later in full capacity suggests it won't be a concern heading into the Week 5 matchup with the Vikings. After a prolonged absence following offseason shoulder surgery that was nearly delayed further due to an illness that he battled last week, Jeffery turned in an impressive season debut in Sunday's 26-23 loss to the Titans. He hauled in eight of nine targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in that outing and looks like a viable fantasy play in most formats while facing a Minnesota pass defense that was shredded by the Rams one week earlier.
Jeffery (chest) was on the field for the start of Thursday's practice, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Rather than any setback with his surgically repaired shoulder or a recurrence of the symptoms that left him ill heading into last weekend, Jeffery's absence at Wednesday's practice was due to a chest injury, which he apparently sustained at some point during Sunday's loss to the Titans. His presence at practice a day later suggests the chest issue isn't a major concern, but it's possible that Jeffery's reps may still be capped Thursday for precautionary purposes. The Eagles will release their formal practice report later in the day, which will clarify Jeffery's level of involvement.
Jeffery was listed as a non-participant at Wednesday's practice due to a chest injury, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports. Jeffery fell ill while preparing for his 2018 debut last week, but he ultimately suited up and was impressive, catching eight of nine targets for 105 yards and a touchdown in a 26-23 loss to the Titans. He apparently picked up a chest injury along the way, though Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer relays that it isn't a major concern. The Eagles did hold a number of other players out of practice after playing deep into overtime last week. Assuming everything checks out, Jeffery will face a struggling Minnesota defense this Sunday.
