Dickerson, the second round draft pick, is now eligible to practice for the first time and he took reps on Monday afternoon. If he had remained on the NFI list, he would have been forced to miss the first six games of the season.
RE: McLeod, he’s been recovering from ACL surgery and missed the entirety of camp. Taking him off PUP provides him a spot on the 53-man roster and the Eagles will insert him next to Anthony Harris when he’s ready. In Week 1 we’ll see Marcus Epps or K’Von Wallace starting opposite Harris, barring a crazy return from McLeod, who hasn’t practiced with the Birds this entire summer. Maybe he’ll be ready to go in Week 1 but the general consensus seems to be that they be careful and work him back in.
