Alshon Jeffery’s response to reporters who asked about an apparent shoulder injury he suffered midway through practice was succinct.
“I’m good,” the Eagles’ 6-foot-3 wide receiver said.
Jeffery crashed into the ground after leaping to try and snag a pass over veteran cornerback Patrick Robinson during a one-on-one drill Saturday. Tainers then ran to check on Jeffery, who appeared to feel pain in his right shoulder.
Jeffery remained on the sidelines for several minutes but returned to action during 7-on-7 drills and said later that he felt fine. He added that he wasn’t sure what happened on the play and would need to watch it on film to figure out how it unfolded.
In any case, it seems a crisis was effort and the former Pro Bowl receiver won’t miss significant time.
Right tackle Lane Johnson hobbled around for a minute or so after a running play on which his leg got caught beneath another player. He quickly returned to the field, though, and moved smoothly over the final hour of practice.
Rookie defensive tackle Elijah Qualls, meanwhile, limped into the locker room after taking part in full-contact one-on-one lineman drills. He did not come back onto the field for practice but walked through the locker room after the workout without noticeable pain.
In addition, three Eagles players did not participate in practice due to injuries: Quarterback Nick Foles (elbow), cornerback Randall Goforth (knee) and defensive end Alex McCalister (hamstring).
