One of the Philadelphia Eagles' starting receivers hasn't been able to get many reps in early on at Eagles camp.

Head coach Doug Pederson confirmed that wideout Nelson Agholor is working through a lower body injury as minicamp progresses, but assured fans that the USC product would be good to go for training camp.

Agholor has made major strides over the last two seasons after struggling to find a groove in the NFL. The former first-round pick recorded a career high 66% catch percentage in 2018.

He also started all 16 games for the first time in his career, hauling in 64 receptions for 736 yards and 4 touchdowns.

Agholor is entering the final year of his rookie deal that he signed back in 2015. He's slated to earn a base salary of just under $10 million.

He's just one of the many Eagles that are either sidelined by or recovering from injury. Teammates like Fletcher Cox, Corey Clement, Ronald Darby and Rodney McLeod are all shelved with various ailments, but looking to get back on the field in the near future.

Hopefully Agholor's vaguely described injury doesn't keep him from getting snaps in the regular season, as the Eagles' wideout is looking to continue his development in year five.
