First-round draft pick Jalen Reagor injured his shoulder after attempting to make a tackle after a Jalen Hurts interception. Initial reports have him not needing surgery while missing about four weeks, per Inside Birds host Geoff Mosher.
Reagor had been tearing it up in training camp, on his way to a likely starting job for Week 1. This injury is a setback to be sure, but if he can hit his four-week recovery, there is still time for him to have an impact this year.
While he is out, expect DeSean Jackson, Greg Ward and JJ Arcega-Whiteside to see a bump in work, with Jackson giving the most upside for fantasy football to start the season. Alshon Jeffery has yet to be cleared from his injury despite working on the side in training camp. We can’t count on him until we see him truly back.
