Question about PUP? Is there a max number of players you can place on PUP?
With the current number of players that are injured, I was wanting to know if there is a maximum number of guys that you can place on PUP at the start of the season. Giants could start the season with six guys on the PUP list: Chris Canty, Terrell Thomas, Travis Beckum, Marvin Austin, William Beatty and Prince Amukamara. Hence they will not count against the 53 man roster correct? We would not be able to bring them back until after six weeks in the season.
I do not believe so . I think the only stipulation is the 6th week thing.
Outside of Beckum and Canty, those other guys are not eligible for the PUP as they have practiced already. They will have to start as injured scratches on the 53, or possibly be IR'ed and utilize the new reactivation exemption rule for one player.
