Still, the fact that Jeffery suffered this injury and was able to accomplish everything that he did during his first year with the Eagles is truly awesome to think about. However, there's a chance he could be rusty and not completely in game shape by the time Week 1 rolls around.

The fact that Jeffery endured a full season with a torn rotator cuff is commendable.

Alshon Jeffery led the Eagles receivers this past season with 120 catches for 789 yards and nine touchdowns. After catching 43 passes and recording seven touchdowns through roughly three months of the season, Jeffery earned a four-year extension.

Jeffery finished the 2017 season ranked 19th in Receiving Net Expected Points (81.06). "The source said the goal is for Jeffery to be ready for the 2018 regular season, though he could return during the preseason if all goes well".

Through his first seven games with the Eagles, Jeffery was averaging just 51 yards per game and had found the end zone only twice.

Take all of this into consideration with Carson Wentz's timetable to return still up in the air, the offseason just got a lot more interesting for the Super Bowl champions.
