Eagles announce Jeffery has ‘foot injury’

The Eagles announced that Jeffery was out with a foot injury shortly after halftime, and that he would not return.

Philadelphia was already shorthanded at wide receiver, with DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor missing Monday’s game with injuries.

Jackson is on injured reserve with a core injury, while Agholor didn’t suit up after being listed as questionable before the game with a knee injury.

Eagles left shorthanded at WR

Jeffery’s injury leaves J.J. Arcega-Whiteside and Greg Ward as the only healthy receivers on the Eagles roster.

Despite a 6-7 record, the Eagles are competing with the 6-7 Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East championship and the playoff spot that comes with it. They’ll need to add to their wide receiver corps before Sunday’s game against Washington.
