M.Tubbs, D.Branch and R.Plackemeier expected to be sidelined

Posted by Danny O'Neil

Seahawks players report for training camp Thursday with the first practice set for Friday morning at 9:15. Wide receiver Deion Branch, defensive tackle Marcus Tubbs and punter Ryan Plackemeier are expected to be on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list. The status of linebacker Will Herring is a question, too.

What does that mean? Not too much. At least not yet. Branch underwent reconstructive knee surgery after tearing a knee ligament in the playoff loss to Green Bay and it has been very clear that his training-camp status would be a question mark. Ditto for Tubbs after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery following his reconstructive surgery last fall.

Being on the PUP list to start camp isn't a huge deal. Whenever they pass a physical exam, they can join the team on the practice field. Tubbs started out last season on the PUP list and then got going later in training camp before suffering a season-ending knee injury.

The question will come if they're still on the PUP list when the roster gets cut down to 53 players before the season, though, that means they will miss at least the first six weeks before they can be activated.

srry to post again so soon but pussies like these 3 just make me sick as a long time fan. Should have to pay us back with interest for games they miss and their badd attitudes just reinforce their ERICA BEDARD status of being wastes of life
