RICHMOND—The Redskins have placed five players on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list as they get training camp started today.
The following players are on the PUP list:
- TE Derek Carrier
- WR Reggie Diggs
- WR Josh Doctson
- G Shawn Lauvao
- LB Perry Riley Jr.
The inclusion of Carrier on PUP has long been anticipated. He suffered a torn ACL in a December game in Chicago. His recovery is on schedule but he still has some work to do before he will be able to get on the field.
The name that Redskins fans did not want to see on this list was that of Doctson, the team’s first-round draft pick this year. He missed most of the offseason program with an Achilles injury and apparently it is still an issue.
Riley was a starting inside linebacker last year until he suffered a broken foot and missed the last six games of the season. He was expected to be back for the offseason program but he was seen on the sideline wearing a boot on the injured foot.
Lauvao suffered foot and ankle injuries in Week 3 last year and missed the entire season. He was seen using a scooter to get around Redskins Park in January so it’s not surprising that he isn’t ready to go. Jay Gruden said yesterday he believed that Lauvao would be ready soon.
Diggs’ injury is not known; Gruden will add some clarity to his and the other injuries when he meets with the press before practice this afternoon.
In addition, the team put OLB Junior Galette on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list. He tore an Achilles' tendon working out on his own on Sunday.
The move takes Galette off of the team’s 90-man roster. The PUP list players continue to count against the limit.
