The Packers will open training camp with nine players on their physically unable to perform list.
That group includes tight end Robert Tonyan and second-round wide receiver Christian Watson. Tonyan is recovering from a torn ACL and there’s some uncertainty about whether he will be ready to go in time for Week 1. Offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins is also returning from a torn ACL and is on the list, but left tackle David Bakhtiari is not after missing all but one game last season due to an extended recovery from the same injury.
It’s not clear what injury is keeping Watson from being cleared to take part in practice, but he, Tonyan and the other players on the list can be activated at any time.
Kicker Mason Crosby, defensive lineman Dean Lowry, running back Kylin Hill, defensive lineman Hauati Pututau, linebacker Randy Ramsey, and running back Patrick Taylor are the other players on the PUP list.
In addition to those moves, the Packers also released tight end Eli Wolf.
