Philadelphia will be without Alshon Jeffery to begin training camp.
The Eagles announced Tuesday that the veteran receiver has been placed on the active/PUP list.
If Jeffery, 30, isn't cleared to play before the start of the season, the club can place him on the reserve/PUP list. If that happens, he would have to remain sidelined for at least the first six weeks.
The veteran wideout suffered a foot injury in Week 14 that landed him on injured reserve and cause him to miss the rest of the season and the team's wild-card playoff matchup against the Seahawks. His absence left a noticeable hole in an already depleted WR corps.
Here are other news items we're monitoring on Tuesday:
- The New York Jets announced they have officially traded safety Jamal Adams to the Seattle Seahawks.
The Jets receive safety Bradley McDougald, the Seahawks' first- and third-round picks in 2021 and a 2022 first-round pick. The Seahawks acquire Adams and a 2022 fourth-round pick.
- Former two-time Pro Bowler Dontari Poe and fellow defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford have been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list by the Dallas Cowboys. Crawford missed most of last season due to a hip injury, while Poe, who joined Dallas in the offseason, is recovering from torn quadriceps.
- The Carolina Panthers are placing punter Michael Palardy (torn ACL) on the reserve/non-football injury list, effectively ending his season, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported Tuesday, per an informed source.
Palardy sustained the injury to his kicking leg during the offseason but hoped to kick through it, Pelissero added. The 28-year-old, who played all 16 games in each of the last three seasons, will now have surgery with the hope of making a return in 2021. Palardy has been with the club since 2016.
The team later announced Palardy's designation. Carolina also announced offensive lineman Greg Little (knee) will begin camp on the active/PUP list, UDFA OL Branden Bowen will be on the active/reserve list with a non-football illness and OL Juwann Bushell-Beatty has been waived.
- The Pittsburgh Steelers signed running back Wendell Smallwood to a one-year contract. He played 15 games for Washington in 2019, and spent his first three seasons occupying the Eagles backfield.
