As the Ravens opened their training camp on Tuesday morning, it became evident that several players will have to wait for their opening because they landed on the physically unable to perform list.
Ravens Head Coach John Harbaugh offered a few of the names, although the team did not release an official roll.
Harbaugh said that safety Ed Reed, cornerbacks Fabian Washington and Lardarius Webb, linebacker Brendon Ayanbadejo, offensive tackle Oniel Cousins, cornerback Walt Harris and defensive tackle Terrence Cody are on the PUP.
Several media reports also added center Matt Birk, running back Matt Lawrence, wideout Rodelin Anthony and cornerback Prince Miller, but Harbaugh did not specifically mention them.
The reports stated that Cousins has a non-football injury designation, Cody, Harris and Miller are non-football injuries, and the rest are on the traditional PUP list.
Players must be placed on the PUP list prior to training camp, and they cannot practice until their names are removed. If a player makes it to Reserve PUP at the end of the preseason, they are not eligible to play for the first six games of the year, but they don’t count against the 53-man roster.
A player will be placed on Active PUP in training camp because they either are still recovering from an injury or do not pass the conditioning test, which Cody and Harris did not.
