Hollins was unable to haul in either of his two targets in Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Vikings.
Hollins drew both of his targets on the Eagles' final drive of the first half but was not heard from again in the game. Despite playing at least 30 snaps in each of the last three weeks, including 39 in this one, the North Carolina product has just one catch to show for it. With DeSean Jackson (abdomen) nearing a return -- possibly as soon as this week at Dallas -- Hollins may see his playing time completely evaporate.
Hollins was unable to haul in his lone target during Sunday's 31-6 win over the Jets.
Hollins did see an additional target Sunday that would have resulted in an 11-yard reception, but the play was called back due to penalty. Hollins had some quality outings earlier in the season with the Eagles receiving corps dinged up, but a healthy Alshon Jeffery and running game and defense that have, respectively, done the heavy lifting over the past two games have left Hollins with few opportunities. DeSean Jackson's (abdomen) forthcoming return and a tough test against Minnesota Sunday should only further limit the third-year target.
Hollins caught one of his two targets for 13 yards in Thursday's 34-27 win over the Packers.
Hollins got a deep ball in the first quarter but was unable to reel it in and then wouldn't get another chance until the third quarter. The 26-year-old saw the third-most snaps among Eagles receivers with 40, far ahead of J.J. Arcega-Whiteside's six. If DeSean Jackson is forced to miss another week with an abdominal issue, Hollins should see similar work at home Week 5 against the Jets.
Hollins is expected to work ahead of J.J. Arcega-Whiteside in Thursday's game against the Packers, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.
While Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (abdomen) were unavailable in Sunday's 27-24 loss to Detroit, Hollins and Arcega-Whiteside both had spots in three-wideout sets along with Nelson Agholor . Coach Doug Pederson suggested he'll move the rookie back to the No. 4 role with Jeffery expected back Thursday, giving Hollins at least one more week of regular snaps on offense.
Hollins caught four of his seven targets for 62 yards in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Lions
Hollins started slowly with just two catches for 23 yards in the first half but started seeing deep targets and connected on balls of 19 and 20 yards in the third quarter to end up with a decent line. The third-year pro led Eagles receivers joined Nelson Agholor in playing all but one offensive snap in the contest. The 26-year-old looks like the most likely candidate to fill in if Alshon Jeffery (calf) or DeSean Jackson (abdomen) are forced to miss Week 4's road matchup with the Packers.
Hollins will serve as the Eagles' No. 3 wide receiver Sunday against the Lions in the absence of Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (abdomen).
Hollins experienced an elevated workload in place of Jackson in Week 2, going for five catches (on eight targets) for 50 yards. The number of looks ranked third on the Eagles behind Zach Ertz (16) and Nelson Agholor (11), while checking in behind fellow wide receivers Agholor (96 percent) and J.J. Arcega-Whiteside (93) with 85 percent of the offensive snaps. Considering a bunch of reps are up for grabs, Hollins is a decent bet to produce as an outside receiver Week 3.
Hollins is in line for a larger workload with DeSean Jackson (abdomen) ruled out and Alshon Jeffery (calf) questionable for Sunday's contest against the Lions.
Both Jackson and Jeffery were knocked out in the early moments of a Week 2 loss in Atlanta, allowing Hollins and rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside to earn elevated snap counts. As a result, Hollins turned 85 percent of the offensive plays into five catches (on eight targets) for 50 yards. There's still a chance Jeffery joins Nelson Agholor to serve as the top wide receiver tandem this weekend, but Hollins proved himself capable of producing with an increased workload.
Hollins hauled in five of his eight targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 24-20 loss to the Falcons.
Hollins was forced into duty as both Alshon Jeffery (calf) and DeSean Jackson (groin) exited early. While rookie J.J. Arcega-Whiteside played six more snaps than the product's 69, Hollins was far more productive and saw twice as many targets. Jeffery's and Jackson's injuries are not thought of as serious, but if either is forced to miss time, there is a good chance Hollins continues to see the field a lot Week 3 at home against the Lions.
Hollins made the Eagles' 53-man roster and will start the season as the No. 5 wide receiver, Eliot Shorr-Parks of Sports Radio 94 WIP Philadelphia reports.
Hollins managed to beat out Greg Ward for the spot on the 53-man roster due to his abilities on special teams, as Ward looked better as a receiver throughout camp. Hollins caught 16 passes for 226 yards and one touchdown in 2018, but his place on the roster isn't overly secure.
Hollins brought in one of two targets for five yards in the Eagles' 24-10 preseason win over the Jaguars on Thursday.
Hollins struggled to make an impact Thursday, although he was playing with rookie Clayton Thorson under center. The 2017 fourth-round pick is projected to latch on to a roster spot as the fifth receiver. However, that's far from guaranteed, considering there's some quality competition for that spot in the form of Greg Ward, Jr., Marken Michel and Charles Johnson, all who've put together some impressive tape while playing in alternative North American pro football leagues over the last year.
Hollins (hip) is practicing Saturday but is still listed on the Eagles' pre-practice injury report, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Hollins missed time earlier this week with a hip injury but managed to participate in practice Saturday. The team evidently doesn't feel quite confident enough about his health, as Hollins is still listed as day-to-day according to the pre-practice injury report. The second-year receiver has put together a solid training camp to date, but it's unlikely Hollins will jump dramatically up the depth chart with Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor locked in as the top three receivers, and 2019 second-round pick J.J. Arcega-Whiteside also drawing rave reviews to start the preseason.
The lower-body injury that kept Hollins out of practice recently doesn't appear serious,Paul Domowitch of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Hollins had been having a good camp before feeling something Monday and being held out for the day. Domowitch speculates that while watching the 25-year-old catch passes off the JUGS machine later, the injury appeared to be to the left hamstring, although the player would not confirm. The North Carolina product expects to be back in practice within the next couple of days, however.
Hollins remained on the sideline at Monday's practice with a lower-body injury, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Hollins was able to practice Thursday through Saturday after missing the entirety of the 2018 season due to issues related to hernia surgery, but his current injury is apparently a separate issue. The 25-year-old still caught balls off the JUGS machine after practice and is considered day-to-day.
Hollins is likely to enter the season as the team's fifth receiver as long as he remains healthy, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Hollins just returned from a mysterious groin injury that sidelined him for 18 months, but he already has turned heads early in camp. The third-year receiver has even gotten some first-team reps and could contend with J.J. Arcega-Whiteside for fourth on the depth chart if the performance keeps up. Hollins caught 16 passes for 226 yards and a touchdown in his rookie 2017 season.
Hollins (groin) participated in Thursday's training camp practice, Martin Frank of the Delaware News Journal reports.
Hollins spent last year on IR due to his groin injury and was limited in offseason practices. It's unclear if he's 100 percent recovered from the issue, but his participation in practice is a positive sign for his status for the time being. If he's able to stay healthy Hollins will be in the running for a depth receiver and special teams role with Philadelphia.
Hollins (groin) returned to practice on a limited basis during minicamp earlier this week, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.
Tuesday reportedly marked the receiver's first practice session since last September. The fact Hollins was able to get on the field for the three-day minicamp bodes well for his availability for training camp next month.
Coach Doug Pederson said Monday that he's "optimistic" Hollins (groin) will be back at full strength for the start of training camp in July, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Pederson admitted that he doesn't fully understand the extent of Hollins' injury, but the wideout nonetheless is progressing in his recovery. Hollins first required surgery to address a groin issue last February and then experienced a setback shortly before the regular season, resulting in the North Carolina product spending the entire 2018 campaign on injured reserve. The fact that Hollins still is in recovery mode months after the season concluded is somewhat troubling for a player who may have found himself on the roster bubble even if he had entered OTAs fully healthy. According to Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia, Hollins at least was present at Monday's OTA, doing individual work on a side field. Assuming Pederson's prediction comes to pass and Hollins is back for training camp, the 25-year-old would be well positioned to make the team's Week 1 roster, but his path to snaps is more muddled with the offseason acquisitions of downfield threat DeSean Jackson and second-round pick J.J. Arcega-Whiteside.
Hollins (groin) isn't participating in spring practices, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Hollins initially had surgery in February 2018 and suffered a setback shortly before Week 1 last season. After spending the entire year on injured reserve, the 2017 fourth-round pick apparently is still working his way through the rehab process. Coach Doug Pederson did say he's encouraged by Hollins' recent progress, but the young wideout likely will need to battle for a roster spot if/when he finally gets healthy. With Alshon Jeffery (ribs), DeSean Jackson, Nelson Agholor and JJ Arcega-Whiteside all locked in, Hollins will compete with a host of players for one or two spots.
Hollins (groin) and Shelton Gibson may end up competing for one roster spot in 2019, Eliot Shorr-Parks of 94 WIP Sports Radio reports.
Hollins and Gibson entered 2018 in a presumed competition for the No. 4 receiver role, with potential for increased involvement early in the season if Alshon Jeffery wasn't ready for Week 1. Jeffery ended up missing the first three games and Mike Wallace promptly suffered a season-ending leg injury, but neither Gibson nor Hollins was able to take advantage, with the former catching just one pass while the latter spent the entire year on injured reserve. The Eagles now have Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor locked in atop the depth chart, potentially leaving Hollins and Gibson to reprise last season's competition, though it isn't too hard to imagine a scenario in which neither makes the 53-man roster. Hollins does have some excellent traits for a fourth or fifth receiver, as he can stretch the field on offense while filling multiple roles on special teams. His groin injury shouldn't be a problem by the time the offseason program begins in mid-April.
Hollins (groin) has been eligible to return from injured reserve since Week 9, but there hasn't been any indication from the Philadelphia coaching staff that the wideout is close to practicing again, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.
Tight end Richard Rodgers (knee) was cleared to practice Tuesday, leaving room for only one more player on the Eagles' injured reserve list to rejoin the active roster this season. At this stage, Hollins looks to be a less likely candidate than fellow receiver Mike Wallace (lower leg) to make a return, given the 2017 fourth-round pick's lack of noticeable progress in his recovery from the groin injury. With the Eagles already bolstering their receiver room with the trade-deadline pickup of Golden Tate, Hollins probably wouldn't have been in line for a meaningful role on offense even if he had healed as quickly as the team hoped.
