Eagles: DeVonta Smith considered week-to-week with knee sprain

The Philadelphia Eagles have done pretty well on the injury front throughout training camp so far. But the team had a bit of set back with their first round selection and projected No. 1 wideout DeVonta Smith.

After an awkward fall during a routine drill last week, Smith was diagnosed with a sprained MCL and is set to miss 2-3 weeks of camp, according to Adam Schefter.

This is obviously not great news for the Eagles, but the team doesn’t seem to be overly concerned about the injury, according to reports. Smith is listed as week-to-week on the Eagles injury report and his absence from practice is for precautionary reasons.

As long as Smith doesn’t miss any regular season action, this injury will be a distant memory once Week 1 rolls around.

Smith isn’t the only receiver who’s dealt with injury issues early in camp. Last year’s first round pick Jalen Reagor has gotten off to a shaky start in camp this year, failing the team’s conditioning test and was limited with lower body tightness during the first week of practice. Reagor is also dealing with the death of a close childhood friend, which has surely played a role in his slow start to camp.

Reagor seems to be at full health heading into the second week, meaning he should slot in as the team’s No. 1 option in Smith’s absence. Travis Fulgham could also get snaps as the No. 1 wideout, allowing Reagor to play in the slot where he may be more effective.

Let’s just hope this Smith injury doesn’t linger into the regular season. The Eagles offense will need him.
