I'm guessing that they've reached the date where players can be put on the PUP. I thought that at the PUP date, that players could either be put on PUP or IR. This is how I thought the IR/PUP timeline worked: Before PUP date: Players must pass through waivers before being put on IR. At the PUP date: Any injured player can be put on either the PUP or IR without passing through waivers. After the PUP date: Once a player takes 1 snap in practice they are ineligible for the PUP and must pass through waivers if moved to IR. Cut-down day: Any injured players can be put on IR without passing through waivers.
