    How does the PUP list work?

    I saw Cromartie is now off the list. Is it a transient thing where people can go on and off with a whim? I thought it was at least 6 weeks of not playing at the start of the season. Also, do the people on the list count as a roster spot? Im confused...

    I believe you have to start the season on the PUP. You cannot be placed on the PUP at any point other than the beginning. It can carry into the season as well but I believe you have to be on it for 6 weeks without being brought off during the regular season.

    Yeah...you have to be placed on PUP at the start of training camp. Once training camp has begun, you cannot be added to PUP during camp because of an injury sustained during camp practices or preseason games. You can be taken off PUP at any time during the preseason, but once you are taken off, you cannot be put back on. At the start of the regular season, teams must make a decision whether to keep you on PUP or take you off. If they take you off PUP, you count toward the 53 man roster. If you remain on PUP once the season starts, you have to be on PUP for 6 weeks, and you do not count toward the 53 man roster. Once 6 weeks are up, you can start practicing again, and the team has a couple of weeks to evaluate you to determine if you are ready to go (in which case, you would need to be added to the 53 man roster, so you'd need to cut or I.R. someone else), or not (in which case, you would need to be placed on I.R. and out for the rest of the year).


    The Rams' offense featuring weapons such as Marshall Faulk, Torrey Holt, and Isaac Bruce were known as "The Greatest Show on Turf"

    The Steelers' offense featuring weapons such as Le'Veon Bell and Martavis Bryant should be known as "The Greatest Show on Grass"

    This has nothing at all to do with respective playing surfaces at the Edward Jones Dome vs. Heinz Field.

    Jahvid Best was just placed on the PUP list so i guess that means PUP is an option for DeCastro. The way Wikipedia (i know) states it, PUP is not ruled out for players who get injured during the preseason.

    You can't be placed on PUP if you practiced whatsoever during camp.

    Jahvid Best was placed on PUP because of the lingering effects of concussions that occurred last season (he hasn't practiced at all during camp). Suggs was placed on PUP because of an injury that occurred during the offseason (he hasn't practiced at all during camp either).

    ok, that explains why no one is talking PUP for DeCastro. We need a link to the NFL rulebook although it may take a lawyer to interpret those rules...haha

    Correct.

    As soon as a player participates in a practice, they are no longer eligible for the PUP list...

    DeCastro will take up an active roster spot unless placed on season ending IR.

    Maybe we need to pick up Kai Forbath. Not only has he been impressive with his place kicking this pre-season but I saw him punting in the game against the Redskins last night. If he could handle both duties for us we would have a nice comfy spot for DeCastro.

    Unfortunately I didn't pay attention to how well he punted.
