On Thursday, Stephon Gilmore reportedly was present at New England Patriots training camp but placed on the active/physically unable to perform list.
The All-Pro cornerback is one of eight Patriots beginning camp on the PUP list, joining defensive tackle Byron Cowart, linebacker Terez Hall, tight end Dalton Keene, special teamer Brandon King, wide receiver Devin Smith, quarterback Jarrett Stidham, and outside linebacker Chase Winovich.
Players can be removed from the active/PUP list at any time. If they remain on PUP at the end of the preseason, they are placed on the reserve/PUP list and forced to miss at least the first six games of the season.
Patriots camp is set to begin July 28.
