New England Patriots Training Camp: Shaun Ellis Isn't Ready For Pats

Only two days after signing with the New England Patriots, Shaun Ellis has suffered a setback. Ellis is reportedly not ready to play and has been placed on the PUP (physically unable to perform) list on Tuesday.

Now, this news isn't as bad as one might think. According to ESPN Boston, all this means is that Ellis was unable to participate in practice on Monday. He can practice again at any time, but if he doesn't practice again before the Pats' final cut to a 53-man roster, there will be repercussions.

If Ellis does not resume practicing by the final cut-down to 53 players, the team would have the option of placing Ellis on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, which would sideline him for at least the first six weeks of the regular season. (via ESPN Boston)
