Teams that failed to make a deal before the trade deadline could get help from their Physically Unable to Perform List.
A slew of big names have spent the season’s first six weeks on the PUP list, waiting to be activated.
Those players include Tampa Bay running back Cadillac Williams, New York Giants wide receiver David Tyree, New England offensive linemen Stephen Neal and Oliver Ross, Houston cornerback Dunta Robinson and Indianapolis linebacker Tyjuan Hagler.
Now that it is after the sixth week of the season, players on PUP can begin practicing with their teams. If and when they do, the teams have a three-week window to activate him or place him on the season-ending injured reserve list.
So some teams have some interesting roster decisions ahead. And some teams could be getting reinforcements.
