Just when it looked like he was starting to separate himself for a roster spot, Bryce Treggs pulled up lame during last night's game against the Patriots.
And now that roster spot is very much in question.
#Eagles WR Bryce Treggs is expected to miss a few weeks with a hamstring strain, source said. Puts him right up against the opener.

That's a really tough break for Treggs. Just last night, a few of us in the press box were commenting about how good the speedy young receiver had looked recently. After missing the beginning of training camp with a knee injury, Treggs returned and looked fresh and as fast as ever.
Even on Thursday night, he caught two balls for 23 yards and the one where he got hurt in the third quarter, he easily separated from a defensive back.
Tregg is still just 24 and was pushing to be the Eagles' sixth wide receiver. The top five seem pretty much locked in: Alshon Jeffery, Mike Wallace, Nelson Agholor, Mack Hollins and Shelton Gibson. But Treggs seemed to have as good a shot as Kamar Aiken or Markus Wheaton or Greg Ward or Rashard Davis of making the team. The injury is a blow to that.
Treggs first came to the Eagles in 2016. He was claimed off waivers from the 49ers and replaced Paul Turner on the roster. He was with the Browns on their 53-man roster for part of last season but ended the year on the Eagles' practice squad.
