Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery Current Stats, Injury Update, Salary & Net Worth
Philadelphia Eagles' receiver Alshon Jeffery was taken out of the court on the 9th December 2019.
In the NFC East showdown between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles, Alshon was ruled out for the later part of the game after suffering a non-contact foot injury during the first half of the game.
As per reports, Alshon apparently heard something pop; however, the chances of an Achilles injury seemed unlikely. The receiver for the Eagles was pushed off the line of scrimmage while running route on Philadelphia's fourth drive.
Limping afterward, Alshon entered the medical tent throwing away his helmet in anger. A cart later took him down the tunnels.
