— Jeffery did not give a definitive answer about what he was told by his doctor about his concussion in Week 4.
He told reporters on Tuesday that he had a concussion that happened during the NFC Championship Game and that he would take it “very seriously.”
The quarterback said he was advised by his doctors that he needed to rest and get ready for the 2018 season.
The Eagles quarterback said the concussion occurred during the second half of the game, when he was hit by the helmet of Carolina Panthers defensive back Brandon Boykin.
The injury is one of three major concussions that have taken place to the Eagles’ starting quarterback in 2017.
The second major concussion happened in the fourth quarter of the Eagles loss to the New Orleans Saints, when quarterback Carson Wentz was knocked unconscious and had to be carted off the field.
The third concussion was a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
The other two were suffered in the NFC Wild Card game against the Dallas Cowboys.
The first concussion came in Week 5 against the Packers, when Wentz went down in the third quarter and left the game.
The Cowboys recovered, and Wentz returned the next week.
The Eagles won the game 24-20.
The next concussion came after Wentz took over in Week 6, when the Eagles lost 24-16 to the Washington Redskins.
