A group of Patriots rookies and veterans hit the practice field Monday in Foxborough, but New England also placed seven veterans on the active/physically unable to perform list according to the NFL’s transaction wire.
Edelman (foot), Amendola (knee/ankle) Jackson (knee) and Lewis (knee) are working back from previously-reported offseason procedures. All four were absent from the practice field throughout the spring practice, except for an appearance by Lewis on the final workout of June. Harbor, a free agent addition from the Jaguars, had been on the field throughout spring workouts.
A player must open training camp on PUP in order to be eligible to be placed on the reserve/PUP list to open the regular season.
Patriots.com video did show left tackle Nate Solder (biceps), running back LeGarrette Blount (leg) and safety Duron Harmon participating in Monday's practice after all three missed spring practice, though Harmon was in a red, non-contact jersey.
Though rookies, injured returning players and select veterans have already reported, the rest of the veterans aren’t due at Gillette Stadium until Wednesday. The Patriots first full, public practice will take place on Thursday morning.
