The Philadelphia Eagles
While nothing is certain, what has become certain are the injury issues that seem to be hindering some of the players on the squad from the City of Brotherly Love.
Star wide receiver Alshon Jeffery is one of those players, as he has been dealing with a shoulder issue. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson told the media that his status remains uncertain with the opening game 11 days away.

This is not news Eagles fans want to hear, due to Jeffery being one of their main sources of production on offense last year.
It is undeniable that Jeffery provides a certain spark, but with the 28-year-old sitting out, there could be a visible drop in the passing game, despite the talent that remains on the roster.
However, it appears that the injury list appears to be growing with each passing day.

If this team is to seriously contend for a title again, they will need all hands on deck to make their Super Bowl push.
