Danny Amendola, Julian Edelman, Clay Harbor, Tre’ Jackson, Dion Lewis, Shaq Mason and Sebastian Vollmer were all placed on the physically unable to perform list by the Patriots, according to Monday’s NFL transaction wire.
No big surprises here, as some of them were slowed by injury at the end of the 2015 season (like Lewis), while others had offseason surgeries or procedures (like Edelman) and missed portions of the spring workouts.
The PUP list allows players who are unable to start training camp the ability to sit out until the medical staff provides clearance. Once they are medically cleared, they’re allowed to practice immediately. For the players who start training camp on the list, they will be eligible for the reserve PUP list at the start of the regular season — as long as they have never been removed from the Active PUP list during training camp.
