Jalen Reagor, WR | PHI

Tue, Aug 03, 2021

Eagles WR Jalen Reagor has passed his conditioning test and is now a full participant in training camp.

Reagor originally failed his conditioning test, but it was an understandable shortcoming given he was dealing with the death of a close friend. He worked individually with trainers on the side during the first few days of camp, and the second-year pro is all the way back and practicing fully with the rest of the team now. It's far too early to write Reagor off, especially since he'll have more opportunities to impress with first-round pick (and presumed WR1) DeVonta Smith sidelined for a few weeks with a minor knee injury.

Amari Cooper, WR | DAL

Amari Cooper (foot, PUP) says he is "close to 100 percent."

"I’m trying to be the best Amari Cooper that I’ve been," were Coop's words on Tuesday. Cooper also revealed he is down from 225 pounds to 215 and wants to play at 210. Cooper's positive health prognosis comes two days after coach Mike McCarthy said he has "looked great." It is sounding like Cooper will reach the team's goal of returning to practice following Dallas' Aug. 13 preseason game. That would have him on track to be 100 percent in plenty of time for Week 1. With questions about his health swirling, Cooper's ADP has fallen behind that of CeeDee Lamb, but he is still being selected on the WR1/2 borderline.

Jalen Hurd, WR | SF

49ers WR Jalen Hurd worked into team drills for the first time at training camp on Tuesday.

The PUP list looked like a possibility for Hurd after he tore his ACL last August, but he avoided it and finally worked into team drills for the first time on Tuesday. Hurd, a third-round draft pick in 2019, has yet to play in the NFL after suffering back and ACL injuries during his first two professional seasons. Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel are clearly San Francisco's two best wideouts, but Hurd could carve out a minor role as a "big slot" if he can stay healthy.
