Eagles head coach Doug Pederson is refuting reports that wide receiver Alshon Jeffery will begin the season on the PUP list according to Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice.
Pederson originally said he would not comment on the report, but then he changed his mind. “You know what, I’m not going to comment on that because we’re monitoring his progress, it’s day-to-day, we’re happy where he’s at, and we’ll continue to do that.” He added that he is “not sure” where the intial reports came from.
The 28-year-old Jeffery underwent rotator cuff surgery after the Super Bowl and was given a six-month estimate as to when he would be ready for action. While his availability for Week 1 is in doubt, it does not sound like he will miss the first six games of the season on the PUP list.
