Eagles place WR Alshon Jeffery on Active/PUP list

The Eagles announced on Tuesday that they have placed wide receiver Alshon Jeffery on the Active/PUP list. While unable to practice due to a foot injury he suffered last season, Jeffery still counts toward the active roster.

If he is not cleared to play before the start of the regular season, the Eagles can place Jeffery on the Reserve/PUP list, but he would have to remain sidelined for at least the first six weeks.

"He's doing extremely well," Head Coach Doug Pederson said of Jeffery on Monday. "Again, he's in a really good spot. He's going to continue to work and get himself ready. Obviously, I won't – you know me, I don't put timetables on players, but when he's ready, he's ready, and he'll be back out there on the field with us.

"So I'm excited with where he's at. Even though, yeah, we missed the spring and had this pandemic, he was still working and rehabbing and doing everything that he could to get himself ready for the season."

Despite playing in only 10 games, Jeffery led all Eagles wide receivers in receptions (43), receiving yards (490), and touchdowns (4) in 2019. In his last full game, the December 1 contest in Miami, Jeffery had nine catches for a season-high 137 yards and a touchdown.

Since arriving in Philadelphia in 2017, Jeffery is fifth among all NFL pass catchers with 17 red zone touchdown receptions.

Also, defensive end Daeshon Hall cleared waivers and reverted to the Eagles' Reserve/PUP list. Hall suffered a knee injury on the last snap of the 2019 regular season against the Giants. He does not count toward the active roster.
