Eagles' Quez Watkins: Sitting out TNF
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins (coach's decision) won't suit up in Thursday's game against the Giants.

Watkins has seen limited action since returning from IR with an upper-body injury, seeing just 20 offensive snaps total across the last two games. Watkins appears to have limited-to-no role in the offense going forward, as John Hightower and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside will handle the depth receiver snaps for Thursday's contest.

Eagles' Quez Watkins: Limited use since IR return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins didn't draw a target while playing 15 of the Eagles' 72 offensive snaps Sunday in a 30-28 loss to the Ravens.

Despite the Ravens holding a commanding 17-0 lead at halftime and forcing the Eagles into a pass-happy game script, Watkins was unable to connect with quarterback Carson Wentz. The rookie has now gone without a target in his two games since returning from injured reserve last week, and his fortunes are unlikely to improve in the near future. The Eagles could get one or both of DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Alshon Jeffery (foot) back in the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants, which would make Watkins and/or J.J. Arcega-Whiteside prime candidates to be inactive for the contest.

Eagles' Quez Watkins: Activated off IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins (upper body) was activated off injured reserve Saturday.

The Eagles will probably take it easy with their rookie, but it's good to see Watkins activated off injured reserve after missing the last four games due to an upper body injury. Watkins returned to practice last Sunday so it'll likely take him a bit to work back into game shape, although both Alshon Jeffery (foot) and DeSean Jackson (hamstring) being ruled out could press the rookie into action, albeit on a limited basis.

Eagles' Quez Watkins: Won't be activated for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins (upper body) won't be available for Sunday's game against the 49ers after the Eagles elected not to activate him from injured reserve prior to Saturday's deadline for Week 4 roster moves, Jeff Skversky of 6 ABC Philadelphia reports.

After missing the Eagles' first three games with the upper-body injury, Watkins was cleared to return to practice this week, but the coaching and medical staffs evidently determined that the rookie needed more time to get back up to full speed. The Eagles can still evaluate Watkins for two and a half more weeks before determining whether or not to add him to the 53-man roster, with his next chance to make his NFL debut coming Oct. 11 in Pittsburgh.

Eagles' Quez Watkins: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Philadelphia designated Watkins (upper body) to return from injured reserve Tuesday, Chris McPherson of the Eagles' official site reports.

The transaction opens a 21-day window in which Watkins can take part in practices while the Eagles evaluate him for a potential promotion to the 53-man roster. Watkins missed the Eagles' first three games with an upper-body injury, but if the coaching staff is satisfied with where he stands on the health front during practice this week, he could be cleared to make his NFL debut as soon as Sunday in San Francisco. The Eagles are in dire need of another healthy body at receiver with all of Alshon Jeffery (foot), DeSean Jackson (hamstring) and Jalen Reagor (thumb) at risk of sitting out Week 4, in addition to the absence of tight end Dallas Goedert (ankle).

Eagles' Quez Watkins: Shifts to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles placed Watkins (upper body) on injured reserve Sunday.

Watkins will need to spend at least three weeks on injured reserve before being eligible to return to the active roster, so his first chance to suit up this season will come Week 4 at San Francisco. The rookie sixth-round pick was considered day-to-day while sitting out with an upper body injury at training camp, so it shouldn't take him too long to get healthy.

Eagles' Quez Watkins: Wears pads at Tuesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins (upper body) practiced with pads Tuesday, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Watkins was initially considered day-to-day after missing Saturday's practice, and he's almost back to full form. It's unclear if the rookie sixth-round pick was limited at all in practice, but he should be fully healthy for Week 1 nonetheless. With Jalen Reagor (shoulder) expected to miss a few weeks and Alshon Jeffrey (foot) still on the PUP list, Watkins has a solid chance to make the 53-man roster after posting 1,178 yards and six touchdowns in his final collegiate season.

Eagles' Quez Watkins: Day-to-day with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins did not participate in practice Saturday due to an upper-body injury, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

The report indicates Watkins is day-to-day with the undefined injury. The 2020 sixth-round pick hasn't necessarily stood out during training camp thus far, but the sheer volume of other qualified receiving threats has largely been the reason as opposed to any sort of shortcomings he has a receiver.

Eagles' Quez Watkins: Gets nice opportunity sans Goodwin
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Watkins could pick up some of the slack after Marquise Goodwin opted out of the 2020 season,'s Tim McManus reports.

The Eagles prioritized speed in late April, trading for an Olympic long jumper (Goodwin) after they'd used three draft picks on wideouts with sub-4.5 speed. Watkins, a 4.35 burner, was the last of those three selections as a sixth-rounder, arguably making him a candidate for the practice squad more so than the active roster. However, his chances to make the team now look much better, with Goodwin sitting out 2020 and Alshon Jeffery slow to recover from Lisfranc surgery. It's still a long shot for Watkins to have a significant role early in the season, but he could at least manage a spot at the bottom of the roster, potentially competing with John Hightower to log some snaps as a part-time deep threat.

Eagles' Quez Watkins: Joins loaded Philly depth chart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles selected Watkins in the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 200th overall.

That's now four receivers with sub 4.5 speed acquired by the Eagles in the past three days, three of which came Saturday during Day 3 of the NFL Draft. Watkins is yet another dynamic vertical threat who is a capable returner to boot, but he doesn't really display a proper flow when running routes. When you're as fast as Watkins (4.35 40-yard dash) that probably doesn't matter much, but he might have a hard time separating from the bevy of speed demons cobbled together by Philadelphia in recent days.
