The rookie second-round pick saw a massive jump in playing time due to Jackson and Jeffery's injuries in Week 2. After playing just five offensive snaps in the season-opener, JJAW saw 69 plays against the Atlanta Falcons.
If called upon for a big role again, the rookie says he's prepared.
"I'm ready," Arcega-Whiteside said, via the team's official website. "That's what I've dreamed about. That's why I'm here, to help this team win."
Despite playing a boatload of snaps in Week 2, the rookie caught just one pass for four yards on four targets. The Eagles will need more from Arcega-Whiteside Sunday after a full week of practice to prepare.
"We've been together since the spring," Arcega-Whiteside said about Wentz. "I've been hanging around him since then, personally and on and off the field. Obviously, this week it's going to ramp up a little more. We're going to get that chemistry going."
A second-round pick out of Stanford, the 6-foot-2 wideout has the size to be a red-zone threat and displayed better run-after-catch ability that anticipated during the preseason. With both Jackson and Jeffery looking iffy at best for Sunday, the Eagles and Wentz will need JJAW to play a bigger role in the offense than he did last week.
