Alshon Jeffery has been great for the Philadelphia Eagles when he's on the field, but that has been a problem lately. Last season, Jeffery missed six games, and he had missed three the year prior.

Given all the injuries Philadelphia dealt with at the position last year, most Eagles fans have to be hoping for a bounce-back season from Jeffery. But according to Jimmy Kempski, Jeffery could struggle to reach those expectations.

Kempski argues that Jeffery will likely open the year on the PUP list, meaning he'll miss the first six weeks of the season, at the very least. Obviously, that would be a blow to the Eagles' receiving corps.

There has been some speculation that the team could look to move him, but that PUP development, alongside his exorbitant cap hit, have apparently made finding a potential trade partner for him tough.

For better or worse, it looks like Jeffery will be with the team this season. Hopefully he can get back to full health, because this receiving corps needs all the help it can get.
