Jeffery (shoulder), who underwent surgery Wednesday to fix a torn rotator cuff, is uncertain to be available for the start of training camp, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

Jeffery appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles, catching 57 passes for 789 yards and nine touchdowns. When did he suffer that injury, the kind that can end seasons? The good news, however, is that the Eagles are bringing back the exact same offensive system, and Jeffery doesn't have to learn anything new on the field.

Alshon Jeffery led the Super Bowl champion Eagles with 120 catches, despite playing with a torn rotator cuff.

Jeffery came to Philadelphia on a one-year deal on the first day of free agency last March before signing a four-year, $52 million contract extension on December 2.

A bulk of that production came in the NFC Championship game in the 38-7 win over the Minnesota Vikings where he had five catches for 85 receiving yards and a pair of touchdowns.

Then, in the postseason, Jeffery caught 12 more passes and scored three touchdowns (while averaging over 18 yards per reception), including his incredible 34-yard touchdown in the Super Bowl.
