Pederson also said he isn't sure about the origins of a recent report which suggested Jeffery could remain on the PUP list into the regular season. The 28-year-old wideout was expected to face a six-month recovery after having surgery Feb. 21, so while his availability for Week 1 remains in serious question, Pederson seems to be hinting that Jeffery could be removed from the PUP list even if he isn't quite ready for the opener. Players on the regular-season PUP list are ineligible to play in games before Week 7.

<![CDATA[Eagles looking to be careful with Alshon Jeffery, could put him on PUP list to start season]]> Alshon Jeffery around for another Super Bowl run than they are having the stud wide receiver around for a few meaningless preseason games.

It’s still concerning to all that Jeffery is making slow progress on his return from rotator cuff surgery, but the Eagles are looking to be careful with the talented wideout.

Per Ian Rapoport, Jeffery could start the season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, likely costing him several games as he looks to return to form.]]> 5270948 Mon, 13 Aug 2018 19:12:01 EDT Eagles Wire

As #Eagles gear up for the season, WR Alshon Jeffery has remained on PUP. Though he’s progressing according to plan, sources say the timing of his rotator cuff surgery -- following the Super Bowl win ?" means there’s a chance he may not be ready for the opener. Could stay on PUP. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)

FF Today's Take: Jeffery's low-end WR2 status will likely take a hit on this news. If he stays on the PUP list to begin the season, he would miss the first six games. We should get more concrete news on this situation in the next week or two. Nelson Agholor, Mike Wallace and Mack Hollins are next up on the depth chart.]]> 5270827 Mon, 13 Aug 2018 17:03:01 EDT

Jeffery toughed out a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder all of last season, only to have surgery immediately after the Super Bowl. The valiant effort appears as if it'll impact his availability for this season, though. While he's hitting all checkpoints in his recovery, per Rapoport, Jeffery may not be ready by Week 1, which would make him a candidate to stay on the PUP list beyond that point. Such a development would ensure he doesn't see any game action for the first six weeks of the campaign, meaning his first appearance wouldn't happen until Oct. 21 against the Panthers. The Eagles don't need to make a decision until September, but an absent Jeffery would open up targets for Nelson Agholor (undisclosed), Mike Wallace and second-year wideout Mack Hollins.
