Arizona Cardinals’ Tyrann Mathieu, Alameda Ta’amu Head to PUP List

Training Camp 2014 commences tomorrow for the Arizona Cardinals and to no one's surprise, the Red Birds placed safety Tyrann Mathieu and nose tackle Alameda Ta'amu on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list as they gear up to begin training camp.

Both players are coming off ACL injuries suffered late last season.

By making this move, the Cards have the option to keep them there when the regular season begins, which if it happened would mean the Cardinals would not have to count one or both against the 53-man roster until they were ready to play.

However, a player on the PUP list to start the season must also wait at least six weeks before playing, and at this point both Mathieu and Ta’amu are expected to be ready to at least practice before then.

Once a player practices, he must be removed from the PUP list and cannot return. Both Mathieu and Ta’amu have been rehabbing well this offseason at the team’s Tempe, Arizona complex.

Both players returned this week and were working out as some of the Cardinals took part in the team’s “QB school” session.
