Report: DE Ellis placed on active/PUP

Newly-signed defensive lineman Shaun Ellis has been placed on the active/physically unable to perform list, according to Aaron Wilson of the Carroll County Times and Scout.com.

What this means is that Ellis was not ready to practice upon signing with the team on Monday. He can resume practicing at any time, and still counts against the 90-man roster limit while he is on the active/PUP list.

If Ellis does not resume practicing by the final cut-down to 53 players, the team would have the option of placing Ellis on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, which would sideline Ellis for at least the first six weeks of the regular season.
