Jeffery (shoulder) turned in a limited practice Thursday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson stated Wednesday that Jeffery would likely advance to 11-on-11 work at some point this week, but it's unclear if the wideout has been able to do that in either of the limited practices he has submitted. At any rate, Jeffery's participation in back-to-back sessions amounts to a step in the right direction, but he'll probably need to log a full practice before gaining clearance for game action. That seems unlikely to happen by Friday, which seemingly puts Jeffery in line to miss a third straight game Sunday versus the Colts.

Jeffery (shoulder) is listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's injury report, Jimmy Kempski of PhillyVoice.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery was also a limited participant throughout last week and never had any real chance to suit up for Sunday's eventual 27-21 loss to the Buccaneers. He still hasn't been cleared for contract, but coach Doug Pederson did say he expects the wideout to take a step forward in his rehab process this week. Jeffery still seems likely to miss at least one more game when the Eagles host the Colts on Sunday.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that he expects Jeffery to take a step forward with his rehab this week, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. "[Jeffery's] a lot like Carson [Wentz] was a couple weeks ago, being able to get back into the mix and do some 11-on-11 stuff. This will be a big week in that regard," Pederson said.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery officially returned to practice last week, taking the field all three days for what registered as limited practices. Pederson's expectation that Jeffery will advance to 11-on-11 drills at some point this week could result in the wideout logging what constitutes a full practice, but it still appears more likely than not that Jeffery is unavailable for a third straight game. With Mike Wallace (lower leg) joining Mack Hollins (groin) on injured reserve this week and Jeffery likely still on the mend, Nelson Agholor projects as the Eagles' clear-cut No. 1 receiver for Sunday's home date with the Colts.

Coach Doug Pederson noted Monday that Jeffery (shoulder) is week-to-week, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery was able to practice in a limited fashion last week, but by being dubbed week-to-week, it appears as though a Week 3 return might not be in cards for the wideout. Meanwhile, Mike Wallace is sidelined indefinitely with a fractured fibula, so if Jeffery remains out Sunday against the Colts, QB Carson Wentz will be throwing to a depleted pass-catching unit in his first start of the season.

Head coach Doug Pederson said Friday morning that Jeffery (shoulder) has not yet been cleared for contact, and thus will not play this week, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery was able to get in limited practices Wednesday and Thursday, and there's a good chance he will be able to get in some work Friday as well. However, since team doctors have not yet cleared him to take hits, he will miss a second straight game to begin the season. Jeffery's progress this week will give him a chance to make his debut in Week 3, however. Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace will be the Eagles' top two receivers Sunday against the Colts.

Jeffery (shoulder) was limited at Thursday's practice, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

For the second day in a row, Jeffery took part in individual drills, but that was the extent of his activity. He likely needs to progress to 11-on-11 drills and complete them without issue before given clearance for game action. With one session remaining this week, the odds Jeffery makes his season debut Sunday in Tampa Bay are dwindling, which leaves Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace at the top of the pecking order at wide receiver.

Jeffery (shoulder) took part in individual work during the early portion of Thursday's practice, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

After failing to practice in any capacity before sitting out the Week 1 win over the Falcons, Jeffery demonstrated some progress Wednesday when he was cleared for individual drills. The Eagles ultimately labeled Jeffery as a limited practice participant, and unless he unexpectedly takes part in 11-on-11 work Thursday, he'll likely retain the same designation for the second straight day. Despite Jeffery making a tangible step forward in his recovery this week, it's still expected that he'll sit out Sunday in Tampa Bay, though a return to action Week 3 against the Colts now looks more realistic than it did at the conclusion of the preseason.

Jeffery (shoulder) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.

EDGE Analysis

A non-participant all last week, Jeffery took a step forward Wednesday with his work in individual drills. He's still expected to miss at least one more game, but this at least bodes well for his chances to get back on the field in Week 3 or Week 4. The Eagles likely will deploy Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace and DeAndre Carter as the regular group in three-wide formations Sunday against the Buccaneers. Zach Ertz, Dallas Goedert and Darren Sproles (hamstring) are also candidates to help account for Jeffery's vacated targets.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Jeffery (shoulder) has been cleared to participate in individual drills during practice, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery will remain a spectator for team drills, but the wideout's advancement to individual drills amounts to evidence that he's progressing in his recovery from offseason surgery to repair a torn right rotator cuff. It's unclear if Jeffery's activity will be enough for him to garner a limited or non-participation tag when the Eagles release their first injury report of the week, but regardless of how he's designated, it remains unlikely that he'll be available for Sunday's contest against Tampa Bay. With Jeffery expected to miss a second straight contest, receivers Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace, tight end Zach Ertz and running back Darren Sproles should represent quarterback Nick Foles' top pass-catching options.

Jeffery (shoulder) said he needs "a couple more visits with the doctor" before returning and is likely out for a few more weeks, Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery added, "Some days I feel great, and some days...a shoulder injury is pretty tough." Coach Doug Pederson previously provided some optimism the additional time between Thursday's season opener and Week 2 could assist in a quick return to the field for the 28-year-old, but that now appears unlikely. Jeffery should continue to be considered week-to-week for now but this most recent update certainly muddles his return timetable and provides a more pessimistic outlook for the near future.
