Lions Plan To Put Chris Greenwood On Reserve PUP List, According To Report

As expected, it looks like Detroit Lions cornerback Chris Greenwood is headed to the reserve physically unable to perform list (a.k.a. the regular season PUP list). Greenwood has missed all of the preseason while recovering from surgery to repair a torn lower abdomen muscle. He's been on the active PUP list, and Dave Birkett reports that the Lions are planning to put him on the reserve PUP list.

What exactly is the difference between the active and reserve PUP list? Players on the active PUP list still count against the roster. Players on the reserve PUP list do not count against the roster, and they can't play during the first six weeks of the season. They can start practicing in Week 7, and then teams have three weeks to either activate them from the PUP list or keep them out for the rest of the season.

Running back Jahvid Best is expected to join Greenwood on the reserve PUP list, and Birkett reports that the Lions may get it over with and put him on it on Monday.

If the Lions do put both Greenwood and Best on the reserve PUP list, they will only need to make three more moves to get down to 75 players.
