Just Tuesday, the Eagles lost one of the leagues top tight ends to the injured reserve list.

On Wednesday, more bad things continued to happen in Philadelphia as the beloved Birds placed their 2020 first-round pick on injured reserve as well.

Reagor joins 2019 first-round pick Andre Dillard as well as nine other Eagles on either the IR or PUP list.

He will not be eligible to return for at least another three weeks after this move.

It is questionable why the Eagles have chosen to wait a week to place him on the list, but the reasoning may have to do with keeping the most players and a move the team made yesterday.

On Tuesday night, the Eagles also activated a practice window for fellow 2020 pick and receiver Quez Watkins, meaning he could return soon if the team deems him healthy enough to do so.

Perhaps the reasoning for not making the move prior to last week’s game was that they anticipated this and, rather than signing Deontay Burnett to the 53-man roster and then releasing him and exposing him to waivers, they would prefer to have Quez take the spot on the 53-man roster directly and utilize the promotion from the practice squad to allow Burnett to play without any teams being able to sign him away.

No corresponding move has yet been made.
