Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery missed the team's first three games of the season. A recent announcement from the team suggests he could be back on the field sooner rather than later.

Jeffery was elevated from the Physically Unable to Perform list ahead of the season - a positive sign for the wideout recovering from a shoulder injury.

On Wednesday morning, head coach Doug Pederson announced Jefferey has been cleared for contact, though he did not reveal when the star receiver will make his season debut.

Here's the report from the team.

Jeffery underwent shoulder surgery in February after playing the full 2017 regular season with the injury. Adam Schefter reported before the season kicked off that Jeffery would miss at least the first two games of the season.

Now he's back. So too, is quarterback Carson Wentz who returned from a torn ACL.

Philadelphia travels to Tennessee for a matchup against the Titans on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. ET.
