- Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery won't play in today's game against the Seattle Seahawks.
- We detail how Jeffery's injury status is moving the Seahawks vs. Eagles (1 p.m. ET, FOX) point spread.
Today’s Seahawks vs. Eagles matchup is producing all kinds of storylines. From weather to sharp over/under action to drama surrounding Alshon Jeffery’s (calf) status, the betting market has been extremely fluid over the past 24 hours.
While it was generally thought that Jeffrey would be able to play today for a Philly team badly in need of help at wide receiver, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Alshon was now “iffy” to go against Seattle earlier this morning.
With DeSean Jackson out for the season and Nelson Agholor battling a knee injury, the Eagles would take the field with an extremely depleted injury corps.
Philly’s fears came true when Jeffrey was officially ruled out, paving the way for limited options for quarterback Carson Wentz.
The betting market has clearly taken notice as well.

Seahawks vs. Eagles Odds, Spread Movement
The Eagles sat as 1-point favorites as recently as 10:45 a.m. ET today, a line that has flipped to Seahawks -2.
That leaves a wide receiver group led by Jordan Matthews, J.J. Arcega-Whiteside, Mack Hollins and Greg Ward.
With ugly weather expected at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia as well, scoring will already be hard enough to come by while battling wind and rain.
As a result, it’s no surprise to see the Seahawks now favored against the Eagles, and there’s a good enough chance that this line continues to climb leading up to kickoff.
For those scrounging the waiver wire, Arcega-Whiteside gets a bump and could see an expanded role in today’s game.
