Philadelphia Eagles WR Alshon Jeffery has rotator cuff surgery

His acrobatic grabs are even more impressive with the benefit of hindsight, as it seems he was playing the entire season with a torn rotator cuff.

It might have been one of the best endings he ever could've asked for, but let's not forget that wide receiver Alshon Jeffery's first season in Philadelphia didn't get off the greatest of starts.

Not only that, Jeffery's performance helped him earn a four year extension worth up to $52 million that runs through the 2021 season.

Taco Bell's public relations team has since issued a statement with the typical "we don't condone this sort of behavior" language. Lee said he began to yell at staff when he heard kitchen workers laughing at the racist slur and reusing the offending word.

According to, Jeffery competed last season with a torn rotator cuff, and he underwent successful shoulder surgery Wednesday. He finished the regular season with 57 receptions for 789 yards in all 16 regular season games, and added 12 receptions for 219 yards and three touchdowns in the postseason. His lone Pro Bowl appearance came as a member of the Bears in 2013. He played 82 percent of the Eagles' offensive snaps.

Jeffery originally suffered the injury in training camp but opted to play through the discomfort.
