In Sunday night's loss to the Falcons, the Eagles lost two of their top offensive players---DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery---to non-contact injuries. Both players left the game early and did not return. 

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson, following his Monday afternoon medical meeting, provided an update on Jackson, Jeffery, and Eagles TE Dallas Goedert (calf) on Tuesday's 94WIP Morning Show.

"It's day to day with these guys and we're going to continue to rehab these guys this week and see where they're at," Pederson said. "I'm not going to commit right now to that (them playing in Week 3) because I want to make sure they put in a full week of practice before we make that determination."

Pederson also admitted than Eagles defensive tackle Tim Jernigan, who is reportedly out 4-6 weeks with a broken foot, has a more "serious" injury.

"Yes sir," Pederson said. "That one is more significant, so that one is a little bit longer than these guys."

In general, Pederson isn't worried about his 1-1 football team and the injuries. 

"Football is a physical strenuous sport," he said. "These guys are running all of the time. They run in practice, things come up. This season is young. It's only Week 2 going into Week 3 and I would rather have these guys, quite honestly, as the season progresses than in Week 2 in a game that we still had a chance to win. We're going to get these guys healthy, we'll get them ready to go when they're ready and we'll go from there."
