Head coach Doug Pederson referred to the groin injury that Hollins sustained in the preseason as a minor setback, but the wideout's move to IR ahead of season opener suggests it was a more serious concern than the club was letting on. The transaction ensures that Hollins will be inactive for at least eight weeks, and the 24-year-old could be shut down for the entire season if the Eagles choose not to designate him as one of two players eligible to return from IR. With Hollins out of commission and Alshon Jeffery (shoulder) also facing an uncertain return date, Shelton Gibson will have a good chance to solidify himself as the Eagles' No. 3 wideout in the short term.
Hollins (groin) has been ruled out for Thursday's season opener against the Falcons, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.
Head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that Hollins suffered a minor setback with the groin injury he has been tending to over the last couple of weeks. This is why the Eagles elected to bring back wideout Markus Wheaton a day after they let him go, but it doesn't look like Hollins will be sidelined for too long with the injury.
Hollins (undisclosed) returned to practice Sunday, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
Held out of practice the past two weeks, Hollins is now on the right track to play in Thursday's season opener against the Falcons. He could take on an larger role in the expected absence of Alshon Jeffery (shoulder), but it's also possible the Eagles will turn to Shelton Gibson instead. Nelson Agholor, Zach Ertz and Mike Wallace are the safe bets to draw targets.
Hollins (undisclosed) did not practice Sunday, Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Hollins was forced to miss Thursday's preseason game due to an undisclosed injury. The second-year wide receiver showed big-play potential last season, and should not be at risk of being released during final roster cuts on Sep. 1. However, Hollins will need to display more consistency if he wants to become an integral part of the Eagles offense in 2018.
Hollins (undisclosed) participated in Sunday's practice, Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com reports.
After failing to catch a pass in the first preseason game, Hollins sat out entirely from the second contest against New England. Back in action now, the second-year pro is on track to be the No. 4 WR in Philly after recording 16 receptions for 226 yards and one touchdown in his rookie campaign.
