Eagles rookie Jalen Reagor will make his NFL debut on Sunday in Washington.

Reagor, who has been recovering from a partial tear in his shoulder, was a full participant in practice on Thursday and Friday and was not given a game status like questionable or doubtful.

That means he’s good to go.

“Jalen is doing really well,” head coach Doug Pederson said Friday morning. “We’ve taken it day by day with him. We’ve kind of increased him this week. We wanted to see where he’s at. You guys know we’re not going to put anyone out there who’s not 100 percent or better. And he’s feeling good. We’ll get through these next couple of days but expect some good things. He’s felt good, so we’ll see where he’s at in the next 48 hours.”

Even when he was limited in practice on Wednesday, Reagor was still working as a punt returner and in receiver drills. He has been trending the right way all week.

When Reagor got injured at the Eagles’ scrimmage during training camp, initial reports had him out for at least Week 1. But the rookie healed quickly.

Here are the official game statuses for Sunday’s game:

OUT: Javon Hargrave (pec, hamstring), Alshon Jeffery (foot)

QUESTIONABLE: Derek Barnett (hamstring), Lane Johnson (ankle), Miles Sanders (hamstring)

Hargrave and Jeffery missed practice all week.

Barnett, Johnson and Sanders were limited all week. Pederson lumped that trio into the same category on Friday morning.

 

“We’ll see here in the next couple of days,” Pederson said. “Today is a big opportunity for these guys, as you know, on Friday to get out there and practice. And we’ll find out more as we get closer to Sunday."

Johnson reportedly had ankle surgery last month, we learned on Friday. 

As for Corey Clement (quad), Pederson said limiting him on Thursday was “precautionary.” Apparently Clement felt some discomfort and informed the staff, so they pulled him back in practice. He is expected to play Sunday.
