When New York Giants training camp opened up on Saturday, July 27, five players were left out of the action. Those five players are constituents of the Giants' active/PUP (physically unable to perform) list.
Surely, these players are aching to rejoin their teammates on the practice field, but they can only do so after receiving clearance from the team's medical staff. If a player does not gain that clearance by the end of camp, he could wind up missing the first six games of the season on the reserve/PUP list, or worse—he could be cut from the roster.
Once a player practices, though, he is immune to any further PUP designations. This slideshow will highlight, in order, the five New York Giants under the most pressure to reestablish themselves as an active, healthy member of the team.
