Good news has arrived for the Philadelphia Eagles, with veteran wide receiver Alshon Jeffery back at practice and running routes. 

Thus far this season, things have gone from bad to worse for the Philadelphia Eagles. Early on in 2020, there has been little to no good news for the passionate fanbase to be able to celebrate, especially after losses to the Washington Football Team and the Los Angeles Rams.

Well, finally some positive vibes have arrived to the practice field. That’s because star wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has returned and was seen catching balls like the good old days on Thursday. When will the veteran wideout be able to return to action on game days for Carson Wentz and the offense?

The Eagles are hoping Alshon Jeffery can start suiting up on Sundays in early October

Jeffery hasn’t played in a game since Dec. 9, and he underwent offseason surgery as well. There were rumors the team would either release or trade him, but nothing was ever finalized and he’s now looking to get back to full health so he can start catching balls from Wentz again on Sundays.

For the Eagles, Jeffery’s return to the gridiron can’t come soon enough. Not only is the team 0-2, but they also just saw rookie wideout Jalen Reagor go down with a thumb injury that will sideline him for multiple weeks.

Reagor was a first-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft and had lofty expectations for this season. Now, he’s got to work his way back to action.

That’s what Jeffery is hoping to do sooner than later. The outside receiver won’t be able to play this weekend, but the Philadelphia coaches are hopeful he’ll be able to get back into a game in early October. That will be massive for Wentz, as he and the Eagles are hoping to turn the campaign around.
