fyi.....

Preseason PUP[edit|edit source]

A player who, as a result of football-related injuries, is unable to take part in training camp practices may be assigned to the preseason PUP list. Players can be moved off the PUP list to the active roster at any time, even after one practice. A player cannot be placed on the PUP list, however, once he has taken the field for a practice, even if only for a few minutes.

Regular-Season PUP[edit]

A player who finishes the preseason still on the PUP list can then be placed on the regular-season PUP list. Such players must sit out the first six games their team plays. At that point, teams have a three-week window in which to allow the player to begin practicing; from the day the player begins practicing, teams have an additional three-week window in which to decide whether to activate the player to the 53-man roster. If either of those deadlines pass, the player must remain on the PUP list for the remainder of the season

Kuper won't be practicing? Thought he was ready to go for camp?

I think Koppen deserved another chance and now we will see if he can do the job against some good competition to start the season...if he starts.

It is probably a paperwork type move for Kuper.

If they don't do it now they can't do it later so this way they can give him some extra time to sit while being able to take him off at any time they want. It only hurts if he is on it to start the season.

Let the dude heal up.

Hopefully there isn't a set back or new issue.

They really need to cut preseason in half IMO. 2 games

if Kuper is to be released as many have speculated, this explains why. He is on PUP because he hasn't passed the physical. If he can't pass the physical he would be entitled to an injury settlement if released.

I don't see them cutting a guy who can return to form, if he can't play ever again then that is another thing all together.

Umm, I think if Kuper was at the stage where he wasn't going to be able to contribute at some point in the near future, they would have just released him. The fact he went on PUP, to me, means they're keeping him and they see enough progress that they feel he could come back and help this team at some point during the season.

I disagree. Preseason games are where you build the fringe of your roster. 2 games is about all the starters see over the 4 week period... if not less. I predict Manning will see about 5.34 quarters of action.

Gibbs will plug in players that are healthy and follow his blocking scheme, and if you can't do that you won't be on the roster. It will be interesting to see who starts the season.

Releasing Kuper would initiate an instant $2.745M cap hit plus an an injury settlement, because he can't pass a physical. Placing him on the PUP is their best option right now.

The fact that Kuper still can't pass a physical this late in the offseason (20 months after the initial injury) speaks volumes.
