Earlier this week, Adam Schefter reported a star wide receiver would miss at least the first two games of the upcoming NFL season. Adam Schefter reported the Eagles will be without Alshon Jeffery for the start of the year.

However, that remains to be seen. On Thursday night, ESPN's Dianna Russini caught up with Eagles head coach Doug Pederson to discuss the possibility of Jeffery being ready for the season.

Although Pederson remained mum on Jeffery's future, he did reveal the wideout will be removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list and activated for the start of the season.

Here's the report from Dianna.

Jeffery underwent shoulder surgery in February after playing the full regular season with the injury. His being activated from the PUP doesn't mean Jeffrey will start the season, however.

The Eagles could also be without star quarterback Carson Wentz, who suffered a torn ACL during the 2017 season. Philadelphia opens the season against the Atlanta Falcons.
