Eagles head coach Doug Pederson was asked about that report on Tuesday [that WR Alshon Jeffery could start the season on the PUP list]. Pederson didn’t say if that was a possibility, but did say that the team likes where Jeffery is at this point.
“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,” Pederson said, via Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice. “But I’m not sure where that came from.”

As we reported yesterday, Wallace and Agholor would see increased work should Jeffery start the season on the PUP list and miss the first six weeks. However, in the story, Pederson seemed to downplay that as a possibility.
