Colt Anderson activated from PUP

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.
