RICHMOND, Va. – On the eve of Redskins training camp being fully underway, the team announced that four players will start camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

Among them was ‘Skins star tight end Jordan Reed, which comes as a surprise to many. A team official tells News 3 Sports Reed has been diagnosed with a great toe pain and soreness. The team decided Reed, a 2016 Pro Bowl selection, needs further evaluation before being cleared to play in hopes of avoiding any further issues.

Players on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list are allowed to attend team meetings but cannot practice until being cleared by team doctors and removed from the PUP list.

Chesapeake native DeAngelo Hall was also on the list, as he is still in the midst of recovering from a torn ACL in Week 3 during last season.

Linebacker Houston Bates and receiver Kendal Thompson will also start camp on the PUP list.
