NFL PUP/NFI list: Chase Young, Marquise Brown, 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?

    NFL PUP/NFI list: Chase Young, Marquise Brown, and J.K. Dobbins notable names, among many others

    The 2022 NFL preseason continues to move forward and 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.

    Current NFL PUP and NFI lists

    View the table below for players who have been placed on either the NFL PUP or NFI list. Notable players will be added as that information becomes available. A full sweep of the league will be done following the release of the official NFL transaction report between 4 and 5 p.m. ET each day. That information will then be updated here.

    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.
