The Hawks receiver Alshon Jeffery has been a full participant in practice matches this week, which has led to speculation that he will make his debut in the 2020 season against the Giants on Sunday.
Jeffery returned to camp with a foot injury and developed a calf injury when trying to return to the lineup. The conspiracy of these diseases put him on the sidelines, and Eagles coach Doug Pederson was unable to confirm that he will play at Friday’s press conference.
Pedersen did say that the Eagles “have a plan” to get Jeffrey into the lineup. He did not elaborate on the plan, but he said it would take “some time” for Jeffrey to move forward at full speed due to the extended layoffs.
“As a staff member, if he is ready to go, we have to be smart. I don’t want to physically crush Alshon,” Pederson said via TheAthletic.com’s Zach Berman.
Miles Sanders is expected to return to the game on Sunday, and Pederson said Lane Johnson will play the right ball, so even if they decide not to let Jay this weekend When Jeffery comes back, they will also allow some players to attack again.
