Cardinals place three on PUP

Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The Cardinals have placed nose tackle Gabe Watson, linebacker Monty Beisel and defensive tackle Keilen Dykes on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list. Watson is recovering from a knee injury. Beisel has also been injured. Dykes' injury status is not yet known.

The PUP designation is easily misunderstood because players who remain on the list during the regular season must miss the first six games. Watson, Beisel and Dykes have plenty of time to pass physical exams and rejoin the roster in time for the opener. For now, this simply means the players are not eligible to participate in practice.
