Detroit Lions wide receiver Golden Tate and defensive end Ziggy Ansah have been placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list prior to training camp, according to Ian Rapoport, insider for the NFL Network.
This is basically a precautionary move.
It does not mean the two will sit out the first six games of the season. To be eligible for the PUP list once the season starts, which would make players unavailable through the first six weeks, players must have been on PUP list prior to training camp.
Ansah underwent shoulder surgery in February and should be close to a return.
Tate has been dealingwith shoulder issues but thought he would be ready for the start of camp.
The Lions veterans report on Sunday and open camp on Monday.
