Three Defenders Start Camp On P.U.P.

In layman’s terms, the Physically Unable to Perform list is like a temporary Injured Reserve, or the disabled list in baseball.

Players on this list are able to go through meetings and do drills off to the side of practice, but may not actually practice with their teammates.  As soon as they’re cleared by the medical staff, they can be taken off the list and everything is Hunky Dory.

Putting a player on the P.U.P. is a coach’s decision, and the Redskins start camp with three players on the list: safeties LaRon Landry, Kareem Moore, and linebacker Robert Henson.

All three players have reported to camp and are busy learning their playbooks.  One happy sight after practice yesterday was seeing Landry and new teammate OJ Atogwe chatting it up outside of the meeting rooms.  The cohesion of these two could be a big factor in the defense this year.

Head coach Mike Shanahan reported yesterday that Landry was being held back strictly “for precautionary reasons,” while Henson and Moore are coming back from offseason knee surgery.  It didn’t sound like he had any lingering doubts about their ability to recover in time for the season, but their status could affect other moves.

Henson has gotten an out-pouring of support on Twitter, and he tweeted his gratitude last night:

    Mr. LaRon Landry, I’ve been a fan for 40 years of the Redskins. You gave me a glimmer of the past in the games before you got hurt. I realize that you have to be smart because if you re injure yourself that your no good to anyone. But you lit a spark on the defense that hasnt been ther since Sean Taylor passed. The opponents respected you and your presence on the field. You, Orakpo, D Hall and Loundon Flecther gave it your all and it was apparent. Get well as soon as possible so that spark may get lit again and us fans for years and years can have something to look forward to on Sunday except an ass whipping. Then we can possible start working on the play offs and maybe just maybe the superbowl. I hope you get well soon and get that respect back that you had before you got hurt.
