Eagles Injury Updates: Jalen Reagor, Fletcher Cox, Desean Jackson
As the Eagles prepare for the Week Three matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals, the team has sustained more injuries that will impact who will play this Sunday:
Reagor has Five Receptions on Eight Targets for the Eagles in the first two week and now is dealing with his second injury Reagor in the last few weeks. Without Reagor and Alshon Jeffery's status still unknown, the team will be depending on JJ Arcega-Whiteside, John Hightower, and Greg Ward to step up along with Deontay Burnett who is on the Practice Squad.
This is the first time in 2020 that its been reported Fletcher Cox is dealing with any injury issues. Cox, a Five-time Pro Bowl selection, missing any time is a major blow to the Defense that is already allowing 32 Points Per Game to start this season. To fill in the void for Cox on the interior of the Defensive Line, the Eagles would lean on Malik Jackson, Javon Hargrave, and Hassan Ridgeway.
The Eagles Official Injury Report on Wednesday lists seven players who Did Not Participate with two listed for "Rest" (Desean Jackson and Malik Jackson) while Corey Clement did not practice due to dealing with a non-COVID related Illness
For Desean Jackson, this is the second straight week he has received a "Rest Day" on a Wednesday but has not been listed with an injury. The Eagles are managing his practice time to ensure he is available to play the full season.
