Hatcher, Bowen, and Hankerson on PUP, Hurt to NFI List

New, comments

Coach Gruden named 3 Redskins who will start training camp on the PUP list, and 1 who will go to the NFI list.

ESPN980 reported earlier today that Hatcher and Bowen would be placed on the PUP list while they are recovering from their knee surgeries.  CSN Washington later reported that CB Richard Crawford had been medically cleared for training camp and would be available to start practicing with the team when camp opens tomorrow.  The other potential player to go on the PUP list was WR Leonard Hankerson who tore his ACL in November in a game against the Eagles.  Gruden confirmed that Hankerson will start camp on the PUP list, and also added in one surprise addition.

Offensive lineman Maurice "Mo" Hurt reportedly showed up to camp out of shape(ala LeRibeus last year) and will have to start camp on the PUP list.  He also started last year's training camp on the PUP list following a knee scope similar to the one that Jason Hatcher had this offseason.  He was eventually placed on the IR.  Hurt showing up to camp is a huge disappointment for someone that is definitely on the roster bubble.  Hurt is entering the final year of his contract.

Gruden indicated that Hatcher is the most likely player to be taken off of the PUP list, but he didn't speculate on how long it would take for him to be cleared.  His recovery time was listed as 4-6 weeks, and it has been 5 weeks since his arthroscopic knee surgery.

[UPDATE: 7/23/14 6:40PM] Maurice Hurt was placed on the Non-Football Injury(NFI) List, not the PUP list like originally reported.
