Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said Wednesday that Jeffery (shoulder) has been cleared to participate in individual drills during practice, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery will remain a spectator for team drills, but the wideout's advancement to individual drills amounts to evidence that he's progressing in his recovery from offseason surgery to repair a torn right rotator cuff. It's unclear if Jeffery's activity will be enough for him to garner a limited or non-participation tag when the Eagles release their first injury report of the week, but regardless of how he's designated, it remains unlikely that he'll be available for Sunday's contest against Tampa Bay. With Jeffery expected to miss a second straight contest, receivers Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace, tight end Zach Ertz and running back Darren Sproles should represent quarterback Nick Foles' top pass-catching options.

Jeffery (shoulder) said he needs "a couple more visits with the doctor" before returning and is likely out for a few more weeks, Jenny Vrentas of Sports Illustrated reports.

EDGE Analysis

Jeffery added, "Some days I feel great, and some days...a shoulder injury is pretty tough." Coach Doug Pederson previously provided some optimism the additional time between Thursday's season opener and Week 2 could assist in a quick return to the field for the 28-year-old, but that now appears unlikely. Jeffery should continue to be considered week-to-week for now but this most recent update certainly muddles his return timetable and provides a more pessimistic outlook for the near future.

Jeffery, who is recovering from rotator cuff surgery, will not play Thursday against the Falcons, the Eagles' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Coach Doug Pederson referred to Jeffery on Tuesday as "week to week." On the plus side, Pederson offered a degree of optimism that the extra time between Thursday's season opener and the team's Sept. 16 tilt against the Buccaneers could potentially provide enough time for Jeffery to return to action by Week 2. In Week 1 at least, QB Nick Foles figures to rely more heavily on tight end Zach Ertz, as well as wideouts Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace.

In advance of Thursday's season opener against the Falcons, coach Doug Pederson refers to Jeffery (shoulder) as "week-to-week," Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

EDGE Analysis

It remains to be seen if the Eagles simply rule Jeffery out for Week 1 or give him a "doubtful" injury tag. Either way, we'll operate under the assumption that he'll miss Thursday's contest, at a minimum. In his expected absence, look for QB Nick Foles to rely more heavily on tight end Zach Ertz, as well as wideouts Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace, in the team's passing game.

Jeffery (shoulder) passed his physical Friday and has been activated off the preseason PUP list, Zach Berman of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Adam Schefter reported Tuesday that Jeffery will likely miss the first two games, but the recent progression for the wideout could signify he will be ready earlier than expected. At the very least, Jeffery's activation off the PUP list indicates he will not remain sidelined through the first six weeks. If he winds up missing action early in the season, Zach Ertz, Nelson Agholor and Mike Wallace should be the top options to receive additional targets.

According to head coach Doug Pederson, Jeffery (shoulder) will be activated from the PUP list Friday and is day-to-day going forward, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Earlier this week, Jeffery was reportedly set to miss the first two weeks of the season, but the day-to-day designation hints that the wideout may be ready for game action prior to Week 3. In any case, Jeffery's activation from the PUP list means he will be eligible to return from his rehab of a torn right rotator cuff whenever he is ready. If he does ultimately sit out the regular season opener, look for Nelson Agholor, Zach Ertz and Mike Wallace to lead the receiving efforts for the Eagles.

Jeffery (shoulder) is expected to sit out the first two games of the regular season, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Eagles are slated to activate Jeffery from the PUP list this weekend with the hope that he'll be available for Week 3 (Sunday, Sept. 23 against the Colts). Otherwise, if he remained on the list, he would be required to miss the first six games of the campaign. In the meantime, the receiving corps will be led by Nelson Agholor, Zach Ertz, Mike Wallace and Corey Clement.

Coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that he still isn't sure if Jeffery (shoulder) will be available for the season opener Sept. 6 against Atlanta, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given that he's still on the PUP list nine days before the opener, Jeffery presumably would have workload limitations even if he were able to play. Pederson must have some idea about the wide receiver's Week 1 availability by now, but the Eagles are trying to be secretive about their various injury situations. Should Jeffery end up missing the game, Mack Hollins (undisclosed) and Shelton Gibson would both be candidates for playing time in three-wide formations alongside Mike Wallace and Nelson Agholor.

Jeffery (shoulder) worked on a side field with a helmet on during Monday's practice, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

The occasion marks Jeffery's first appearance on the field in any capacity since undergoing surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder on Feb. 21. It's also serendipitous that he's present almost exactly six months removed from the procedure, which was the timetable given for his recovery. He remains on the PUP list, though, so he merely appears to be ramping up his conditioning with an eye on the regular season. In the end, it remains to be seen if he'll be healthy by Week 1.

Eagles coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday that he's pleased with where Jeffery (shoulder) is at in his recovery process, Zack Rosenblatt of NJ.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Pederson also said he isn't sure about the origins of a recent report which suggested Jeffery could remain on the PUP list into the regular season. The 28-year-old wideout was expected to face a six-month recovery after having surgery Feb. 21, so while his availability for Week 1 remains in serious question, Pederson seems to be hinting that Jeffery could be removed from the PUP list even if he isn't quite ready for the opener. Players on the regular-season PUP list are ineligible to play in games before Week 7.
