The Philadelphia Eagles have activated wide receiver Bryce Treggs from the non-football injury (NFI) list, according to an official announcement from the team.
Super Bowl repeat confirmed.
It was a surprise when Treggs opened training camp on NFI last week since he was a full participant in OTAs and minicamp. The exact nature of his injury has been unclear; the only thing we knew is that is was a “lower body injury.”
In any case, Treggs is back now. That’s important for him as he tries to make the team as a fifth or sixth receiver. Or at least be able to put some good tape on film for other teams.
Treggs led the Eagles in receiving last preseason. He just missed out on making the final 53-man roster, though, and spent most of the year on Philadelphia’s practice squad. A six-game stint on the Cleveland Browns’ roster was mixed in there as well.
Note that Treggs being activated from the NFI list does not free up a roster spot. He was already counting towards the roster. This news also means he’s not eligible for the regular season NFI list.
Timmy Jernigan is now the only Eagles player remaining on the NFI list. Brandon Graham, Alshon Jeffery, and Chris Maragos are still on the similarly-functioning Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list.
