Jeffery (shoulder) didn't participate in the first round of OTAs and won't be available for any spring practices, Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery's recovery timetable was estimated at six months after he had surgery Feb. 21 to repair a full tear of his right rotator cuff. The Eagles tentatively expect their top wideout to be ready for Week 1, though the timeline puts his availability for training camp in doubt. Should he end up missing games, Jeffery's usual allotment of snaps likely would go to some combination of Mack Hollins, Shelton Gibson and Markus Wheaton, all of whom will compete for roles in the coming months. Such a scenario would portend increased target volume for Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor, the team leaders in receptions last season.

Jeffery (shoulder), who underwent shoulder surgery Wednesday, sustained a full tear of his rotator cuff and isn't certain to be ready for the regular season, Josina Anderson of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Anderson notes that the expectation is for Jeffery to be ready for Week 1 but, now that the full extent of his injury is known, there appears to be concern he might not be. Furthermore, he's now said to be "very likely" to miss the preseason.

Jeffery (shoulder), who underwent surgery Wednesday to repair a torn rotator cuff, is uncertain to be available for the start of training camp, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles should shed more light on the status of Jeffery's rehab from the procedure when the team reconvenes for Organized Team Activities in April. Though it's likely the wideout won't be in attendance for the offseason program and could be sidelined for the start of training camp, the expectation is that he'll be back to full strength by the start of the regular season. Despite playing hurt throughout the 2017 campaign after sustaining the injury in camp, Jeffery turned in a strong first year in Philadelphia, catching 57 of 120 targets for 789 yards and nine touchdowns in 16 games. After inking a four-year extension in December, Jeffery is set to reprise his role as the top target for franchise quarterback Carson Wentz (knee), who could be recovered from a torn ACL and LCL before the new season begins.

Jeffery underwent successful surgery Wednesday to address a torn rotator cuff, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery suffered the shoulder injury during training camp, but proceeded to play through the issue for all 16 of the Eagles' regular-season contests, as well as the team's three postseason bouts. Though less than 100 percent healthy, Jeffery's productivity didn't seem to be impacted by the injury, as he quickly established a strong rapport with starting quarterback Carson Wentz (knee) in the regular season and seemed to get comfortable with replacement signal caller Nick Foles during the playoffs, ultimately finishing the campaign a 73-yard, one-touchdown effort in the Eagles' Super Bowl LII victory over New England. Jeffery may be held out of the Eagles' offseason workouts while recovering from surgery, but the team doesn't seem to harbor any concerns about his health heading into 2018, as Philadelphia inked the wideout to a four-year, $52 million contract extension in December.

Jeffery brought in three of eight targets for 73 yards and a touchdown during the Eagles' 41-33 win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery scored the first touchdown of the contest by making a leaping 34-yard scoring grab in the the left side of the end zone with 2:34 remaining in the first quarter. The 27-year-old was rendered a non-factor from the second quarter onward, however, as former college teammate Stephon Gilmore often blanketed him in coverage. Nevertheless, the Super Bowl victory served as a fine conclusion to Jeffery's first season in Philadelphia, one that saw him haul in 57 of 120 targets for 789 yards and nine touchdowns. He also wrapped up the postseason with a combined three scores between the NFC championship and Super Bowl, cementing his role as one of the offense's most important weapons. Jeffery displayed solid rapport with Carson Wentz before the latter's season-ending knee injury, and he'll undoubtedly look to improve on that connection as soon as the latter is ready to resume on-field work.

Jeffery caught all five of his targets for 85 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 38-7 NFC championship drubbing of the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery hauled in a 53-yard score to make it 21-7 with 1:09 left before halftime, then caught a five-yard touchdown to conclude the scoring with 14:10 remaining in the fourth quarter. The physical wide receiver has established strong chemistry with quarterback Nick Foles, so expect Philadelphia to rely on Jeffery heavily in the Super Bowl.

Jeffery caught four of five targets for 61 yards during Saturday's 15-10 win over the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery led the team in receiving yardage on the day despite tying with three other players for the most targets. He averaged a healthy 15.3 yards per reception as each of his grabs went for a first down. Jeffery's value clearly took a hit when Carson Wentz went down with a season-ending injury, but he and Nick Foles appear to be building a respectable rapport ahead of next week's NFC championship game against the Saints or the Vikings.

Jeffery and Nick Foles want to work on their chemistry during Sunday's game against the Cowboys, ESPN.com's Tim McManus reports.

EDGE Analysis

While that may be true, Jeffery and Foles probably will need to make something happen in the first half, as the Eagles figure to start pulling key players before the end of Sunday's game. Jeffery was held without a catch on two targets in Monday's 19-10 win over the Raiders, after catching four of 10 targets for 49 yards and a score in Foles' first start Week 15 against the Giants. It'll be a surprise if Jeffery sees more than a handful of targets before exiting the regular-season finale.

Jeffery was held without a catch on two targets in Monday's 19-10 win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

The loss of MVP candidate Carson Wentz (knee) didn't prove too costly for Jeffery in the Week 15 victory over the Giants, but the wideout and replacement quarterback Nick Foles struggled to get on the same page Monday. The two targets were the fewest of the season for Jeffery, who also missed out on a would-be touchdown after Foles couldn't connect with him when he was wide open down the field during a play in the second half. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson suggested Tuesday that Foles would start the regular-season finale against the Cowboys, but with Philadelphia having clinched the No. 1 seed in the NFC, both the quarterback and Jeffery may see limited snaps during the contest as the team looks to preserve its key players for the postseason.

Jeffery caught four of 10 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-29 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery reversed course in the back of the end zone during Sunday's game, turning back out toward the side line for a three-yard score. The big-bodied target has now scored in six of his last seven games. He seems like a fair bet to keep humming so long as Nick Foles keeps slinging it like he did on Sunday. The Eagles' final two opponents, Oakland and Dallas, entered Week 15 both ranking in the bottom five of the league in opponent passer rating.
