It’s been a long time coming, but first-round pick Jalen Reagor is set to make his return to the Eagles offense after missing some time with a UCL tear.
The rookie receiver picked up the injury in the team’s week 2 loss to the Rams.
Through two games, Jalen Reagor racked up 96 receiving yards on 5 catches. 55 of those yards came on a huge catch against Washington, his only reception in that matchup. The rest came in week 2 against the Rams, but his involvement in the offense was relatively tame. That may no longer be the case.
With DeSean Jackson out and Tavis Fulgham handling X-Receiver duties, it’ll be down to Reagor and Hightower to split time at the Z spot and try to pick apart a wounded Dallas defense.
Reagor’s scintillating speed will a huge addition to an offense that has lacked playmakers all year long. Carson Wentz finally gets some help back in the way of one of the most dynamic players on the team.
The former TCU receiver was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles with the 21st overall pick, the same team that his father Montae played for back in 2007.
Named to three All-America teams in 2019, Reagor received second-team honors as an all-purpose wide receiver and as a Punt returner. In fact, he was one of only two players in the FBS with a pair of punt return touchdowns in 2019.
We’re not sure on the status of Dallas Goedert yet, but it’s assumed that the young tight end could also be back in action. After Richard Rodgers valiantly held the fort while Zach Ertz also nursed injury, there’s finally sighs of relief. Hold on to your Horses, the Eagles are beginning to get healthy right in front of the Bye and the race for the NFC East is really about to heat up.
