Eagles rookie wide receiver Jalen Reagor suffered a torn UCL in his thumb in the Week 2 loss to the Los Angeles Rams and is expected to miss multiple weeks according to John Clark of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Man, neither the Eagles nor the rookie can catch a break. The No.21-overall pick this spring out of TCU, Reagor miss valuable training camp time with a shoulder injury but was able to suit up Week 1. In Week 2, he played 85% of the snaps-the highest rate among any of the Eagles wideouts-and caught all four of his targets for 41 yards.
Now he will have to undergo surgery and will likely be put on injured reserve, which will cost him a minimum of three games. For perspective, Drew Brees suffered the same exact injury in 2019 and missed five games.
A wideout will likely return sooner with this injury than a QB who needs to grip the ball on every snap but it is still a major problem.
The Eagles have been decimated by injuries to their offensive line and their skill players in 2020. They will eventually get veteran Alshon Jeffery back from his Lisfranc injury but will heavily lean on running back Miles Sanders and tight ends Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert for the forseeable future.
