Jeffery played with fractured ribs during Sunday's divisional-round loss to New Orleans, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

An MRI reportedly revealed the injury earlier in the week. The receiver wasn't on the injury report at all heading into the Eagles' wild-card victory over the Bears, but Jeffery was listed as a limited participant in every practice leading up to Sunday's loss to the Saints. Under contract with Philadelphia through 2021, Jeffery shouldn't have a problem returning to full health before the start of OTAs this spring.

Jeffery brought in five of eight targets for 63 yards in the Eagles' 20-14 divisional-round playoff loss to the Saints on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery co-led the Eagles in receptions and topped the team in receiving yards, but it was the catch he failed to make with 1:52 remaining that will stand out for a long time to come. The veteran receiver couldn't secure a well-thrown ball from Nick Foles on second down deep in New Orleans' territory, and the deflected pass landed in the hands of Marshon Lattimore for a game-clinching interception. Jeffery had trouble gaining separation from Lattimore throughout the second half after the Saints decided to shadow the talented receiver with their best corner, which led to the Eagles failing to mount any appreciable momentum after their early 14-0 lead. Having generated a solid 65-843-6 line across 13 regular-season games in 2018, Jeffery will look to top those numbers during the third year of a four-year, $52 million deal in 2019.

Jeffery (ribs) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's divisional-round contest at New Orleans.

EDGE Analysis

Although Jeffery was listed as limited all week, he's been cleared to play through a rib issue. He'll be looking to exploit a Saints defense that allowed 9.2 yards per target and 20 touchdowns to wide receivers in 2018.

Jeffery (ribs) was a limited practice participant Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

Despite logging a second capped session in a row, Jeffery doesn't seem to be in any danger of missing Sunday's divisional-round game at New Orleans. Assuming he ditches the rib injury on the final practice report of the week, he'll look to lead the Eagles in receiving again after a 6-82-0 line on nine targets this past Sunday in Chicago.

Jeffery was listed as limited on Wednesday's estimated practice report due to a rib injury.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery handled 66 of 68 offensive snaps, most for any Eagles skill-position player not named Nick Foles, during Sunday's 16-15 wild-card win at Chicago. It comes as no surprise that Jeffery led his teammates in all receiving categories -- six catches for 82 yards on nine targets -- but Dallas Goedert and Golden Tate reeled in Foles' two TD passes. Jeffery is tending to a rib injury, but his ability to participate in Wednesday's walk-through suggests he'll be fine for this Sunday's divisional-round game in New Orleans.

Jeffery caught six of nine targets for 82 yards in Sunday's 16-15 wild-card round win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery once again displayed excellent chemistry with quarterback Nick Foles, pacing the team in targets, catches and receiving yards. Playoff poolies can expect another strong performance from Jeffery in the Divisional Round against a Saints team that's had trouble covering wide receivers.

Jeffery caught three of five passing attempts for 82 yards in Sunday's 32-30 defeat of the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery followed up his best receiving game of the year with another strong effort, tallying more than 80 yards for just the second time since Week 7. His most important catch of the day was a 19-yard gain as time wound down in the fourth quarter that he hauled in while Nick Foles drew a roughing-the-passer penalty that would combine to set up the game-winning field goal a few plays later. Despite back-to-back solid efforts, Jeffery will be tough to trust Week 17 at Washington, against whom he was held to just three catches and 31 yards earlier this season.

Jeffery (illness) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Texans, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery still felt a bit sick after returning to practice Friday, but he confirmed he plans to suit up Sunday with his team's season on the line. While his availability is no longer in question, the veteran wideout may be impacted in terms of snap count and/or effectiveness if his symptoms don't clear up before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. EST kickoff. Jeffery will try to continue his chemistry with Nick Foles after exploding for 160 yards last week.

Jeffery (illness) will participate at practice Friday, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery sat out the last two days due to the illness going around the Eagles' locker room, but will finish the week back on the practice field. The 28-year-old's level of participation remains to be seen, but he's at least trending in the right direction for Sunday's game against the Rams. The Eagles official injury report will come out later Friday and should provide a better idea of Jeffery's potential availability.

Jeffery (illness) was held out of practice Thursday, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This marks back-to-back absences for Jeffery, who is coming off a season-high 160 receiving yards in a Week 15 win against the Rams. He'll have one more opportunity to get in some work at practice this week, at which point his listing on Friday's injury report will forecast his odds to suit up Sunday versus the Texans.
