A year off was not enough time for running back Joe McKnight to get well.

According to Randy Covitz of the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs put McKnight on the physically unable to perform list Monday. They also placed cornerback David Van Dyke (hamstring) on PUP.

McKnight, who sat out last season after being cut by the Jets, was going to have a chance to compete for a kick return job with the Chiefs.

But he needed arthroscopic knee surgery after the offseason program, and isn’t ready to practice yet.
