Eagles wideout leaves Titans game early with shoulder injury originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia
Eagles receiver Quez Watkins injured his shoulder late in the third quarter and was forced to exit the game against the Titans.
Watkins injured his shoulder on a gadget play that eventually went to him for a 3-yard gain on one of the last plays of the third quarter. Watkins walked into the locker room as the fourth quarter began.
Before leaving this game, Watkins had 5 catches for 37 yards. He was just one piece of a dynamic offensive performance against Tennessee.
Without tight end Dallas Goedert (shoulder), who will be on Injured Reserve for at least one more week before he’s eligible to return in Week 15, Watkins’ role has increased. The Eagles have used more and more 11 personnel without their Pro Bowl-caliber tight end.
Watkins had some very quiet games earlier this season but has really come on recently. Without Watkins, veteran Zach Pascal gets bumped up the depth chart.
Coming into Sunday's game, Watkins had 17 catches for 259 yards and 3 touchdowns.
