NFL PUP/NFI list: Michael Thomas, Jalen Ramsey, and J.K. Dobbins notable names, among many others

What do the NFL PUP and NFI designations mean, and which players will be starting this year's training camp on these lists?

The 2022 NFL season is slowly inching closer, and training camp is about to take us into the next phase of the offseason. Before veterans report and join the rookies on July 26, organizations have already begun to designate certain players onto their physically unable to perform (PUP) and non-football injury or illness (NFI) lists.

Let’s take a look at the two different designations — NFL PUP and NFI — and the notable players that are currently on either of the lists. Please note that we will continue to update this daily as teams either add or remove players from their PUP or NFI lists.

What is the NFL PUP list? How does it work?

There are different stages of the PUP list. Players can be given the designation before training camp and be removed at any point in time.

If they start the preseason on the PUP list, that means that they cannot practice until cleared by the team’s medical personnel. This does not mean that they cannot take part in team activities and meetings, though. However, if a player practices during training camp and is injured, they cannot be designated PUP. Instead, they will need to be cut or placed on the injured reserve.

When the regular season starts, players can be placed on the regular-season PUP list. This offseason, the NFL modified its PUP rule and shortened the minimum amount of time required to be designated on the PUP list. Before, players needed to wait six weeks before they could return. That has now been shortened to four.

After the fourth week, the player must be allowed to return to practice, placed on injured reserve, or released within five weeks. One interesting point to note is that players on the PUP list do not count against the 53-man roster but do count against the 90-man roster limit.

What is the NFI list? How does it work?

The non-football injury list works similarly to the PUP list. To be placed on the NFI list, players need to have suffered an injury not related to NFL football or have something that keeps them from practicing at the start of training camp. The rules on when a player on the NFI can return to work are the same as for those on the PUP list.

One caveat to the NFI and PUP lists is that once a player has been cleared, they cannot go back on the list. Said player will have to be cut or placed on injured reserve.
