The Philadelphia Eagles grabbed their third win of the season in Week 8, but not before seeing wide receiver Jalen Reagor and offensive lineman Jack Driscoll leave with injuries. Fortunately, head coach Nick Sirianni seems optimistic that both players could return quickly and avoid a lengthy absence.

Reagor turned his ankle when reaching for the goal line on a designed run and was eventually carted to the locker room following treatment on the sideline. His status for Sunday may come down to his ability to make quick moves and bursts on his injured side.
Losing the second-year pro for any amount of time would be tough for an Eagles' offense that lacks depth at the WR position. Reagor currently ranks second on the team with 32 targets and has hauled in 20 of them for 165 yards and 2 touchdowns while working both outside and in the slot.
Meanwhile, Driscoll ran off the field during the first quarter to get his right hand checked out. He made his way to the locker room shortly after before being pronounced out for the rest of the game. His improved play over the last few weeks has given the Eagles' coaching staff a player they know they can rely on.
Overall, this is a situation worth watching throughout the rest of the week. The Eagles take on the Los Angeles Chargers at home in Week 9 as they look to stay alive in the NFC playoff race. Philadelphia is slated as a small 1.5-point underdog in that one, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
