Two veterans who had offseason knee surgery and have yet to practice this summer, defensive tackle Chris Canty and tight end Travis Beckum, were placed on the reserve/physically unable to perform list. They will miss at least the first six games of the season.

According to NFL rules, the earliest Canty and Beckum can be activated is the day after the sixth regular season weekend (October 16).  From October 16 up until the day after the ninth regular season weekend (November 6), players on reserve/PUP may begin a 21-day practice period before a decision has to be made whether to activate, terminate, or keep them on the reserve/PUP list.
