With Agholor’s Struggles, Eagles Could Turn to Bryce Treggs
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Bryce Treggs hasn’t played much so far this since being claimed off waivers back in September from the San Francisco 49ers. With that said, Eagles head coach Doug Pederson indicated Wednesday that the speedy wide out is still very much in the team’s plans moving forward.
“Treggs is getting a little more work each week. We'll continue to increase his workload. I think he's in a position to contribute more in these next six games.”
Treggs has just two catches all season, both coming in Week 9 against the Giants.
As Pederson indicated as a reason Paul Turner hasn't got a look so far this year, its a numbers game, meaning Treggs will likely need an injury or something extremely poor to occur for him to start seeing the field more on the offensive side of the football.
Monday night, the Eagles will play the Green Bay Packers, who because of injuries, have one of the worst secondaries in football right now. With that, coupled with Nelson Agholor's struggles, now could be the time that Treggs gets his shot to show he belongs.
Pederson was non-committal on Wednesday when asked if Agholor would be active on Monday night.
"I can't answer that today," Pederson said. "I've got to see how the week plays out before I make that decision."
"Ultimately Coach [Doug Pederson] makes a decision who is active, who is inactive," Eagles offensive coordinator Frank Reich stated today. "I honestly don't know what that decision is going to be at this point, so in the meantime, we just get everybody ready to play."
