On Monday afternoon, a report from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network surfaced that Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery could start the season on the PUP list.
As #Eagles gear up for the season, WR Alshon Jeffery has remained on PUP. Though he’s progressing according to plan, sources say the timing of his rotator cuff surgery -- following the Super Bowl win – means there’s a chance he may not be ready for the opener.

If Jeffery did indeed start the season on PUP, that would mean that he would be ineligible to play the first six weeks of the season.
On Tuesday, Doug Pederson said he wouldn't comment on it, and then he did anyway.
"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 said. "But I'm not sure where that came from."
Previously, Rapoport reported that Carson Wentz could start training camp on the PUP list. Instead, Wentz participated in camp from Day 1, and has played, in my opinion, better than he has in any other camp.
