Hey who would worry about the star wide receiver with a history of nagging injuries missing three consecutive days of training camp and being on target to miss the first preseason game?
NOT ME. NOT ME AT ALL!!!
Jeffery injured his shoulder during practice last Saturday. He returned for Sunday’s session, but has not practiced since. He worked on a far field during the beginning of Thursday’s practice, going through stretching and conditioning work with a trainer.
Jeffery has had some trouble staying on the field, for various reasons, throughout his career. He missed six games during his rookie season in 2012 – four with a broken hand and two with a torn meniscus – seven – SEVEN! – games in 2015 with hamstring tears, and four last year due to suspension for taking the famous banned substance in a supplement. He has been limited in many other games due to strains and such. In 2015, he also suffered a shoulder injury in practice, but didn’t miss any games.
The point is, while his shoulder injury might be nothing, the one thing that can stop Jeffery is indeed injuries. It’s not a great sign that he’s already a little bit banged up, even if it officially makes him one of us. Welcome to Philly.
