Alshon Jeffery Cleared For Contact

In his press conference on Wednesday morning, Doug Pederson announced that Pro Bowl wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has been cleared for contact for the first time in 2018.

Jeffery played through a torn rotator cuff last season and underwent surgery on it in the offseason. He was unable to participate in spring practices, Training Camp, and the preseason. He was added into practice in a limited role to begin the regular season.

Pederson said the team has not determined whether or not Jeffery will play on Sunday against the Tennessee Titans. That determination will be made later in the week.

"We're excited to get him in the mix and see where he's at," Pederson said.

Pederson added that running backs Jay Ajayi (back) and Darren Sproles (hamstring), who both sat out against the Colts, will have their status for Sunday's game determined later in the week as well.

Safety Rodney McLeod left the game against the Colts early with a knee injury. Pederson said there is no update on his injury at the moment as he still needs one more test. While his status for Sunday is uncertain, Pederson said he feels confident with the depth of the safety position if he cannot play.
