The Philadelphia Eagles activated safety and special teams ace Colt Anderson for the Physically Unable to Perform list Friday, according to a published report.
The former Butte High and University of Montana star tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Dec. 1 against Seattle. The team doesn’t expect him to be ready for the Sept. 9 season opener in Cleveland, but the Eagles think Anderson could contribute at some time in the first eight weeks of the season.
A player who starts the season on the PUP can’t play for the first eight weeks.
Friday’s move basically assures Anderson of a spot on the Eagles’ 53-man roster.

Bill I met Lefty Rundle at our FF draft. He told me about this website. Glad to find out you were still writing your Tap ‘er Light. I checked alot of column’s to find out something about Colt. I couldn’t find much. I hope he’s playing again soon!REPLY
