According to the NFL's transaction wire, six Patriots were placed on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list ahead of Training Camp. Those players designated to this list included T Cole Croston, DB Nate Ebner, RB Sony Michel, WR Demaryius Thomas, DB Ken Webster and DE Deatrich Wise. In addition, T Rodney Cajuste was placed on the Non-Football Injury (NFI) list.
Players who open camp on the active PUP list are the only ones eligible to open the season on the reserve PUP list, which would eliminate them from at least the first six weeks of the season. Players can be removed from the active PUP list at any point during the summer.
As with PUP, players placed on NFI can be removed from the list at any point this summer.
