Remaining Patriots players avoid PUP

Rookies, most players returning from injury and quarterbacks had reported to the New England Patriots on Sunday, with the first step undergoing physicals and then the conditioning test. Those who weren't cleared were placed on either the active/physically unable to perform list or the active/non-football injury list.

The remaining players, about 50 percent of the roster according to Bill Belichick, reported on Wednesday and went through the same process. Of that group, none were placed on the PUP or NFI lists.

This is promising news for players like defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, who participated in spring camps on a limited basis as he recovered from a ruptured Achilles sustained Sept. 29, 2013.

The Patriots' first official practice of training camp is Thursday (9:15 a.m. ET).
