The Lions have placed cornerback Chris Greenwood and defensive end Ronnell Lewis on the Physically Unable to Perform list for the start of training camp. The team also placed wide receiver Ryan Broyles on the Active/Non-Football Injury list.
Greenwood had surgery in May to repair a torn abdominal muscle. He’s been rehabbing at the Lions’ training facility in Allen Park since the injury and has already began running.
“I’m rehabbing now and running and jogging and hopefully I’ll be back sooner rather than later,” Greenwood told Detroitlions.com. “I’m just doing what the trainers tell me to do.”
The extent of Lewis’ injury is unknown. He participated fully in the team’s June mini-camp, though.
Players can be moved off the PUP list to the active roster at any time, even after one practice. A player who finishes the preseason still on the PUP list can then be placed on the regular season PUP list, which means they must sit out the first six games.
Broyles is eight months removed from ACL surgery in his left knee. He participated in OTAs in a limited fashion this spring. Broyles expects to be ready by the start of the regular season, but it appears the Lions are going to take it slow with their second-round pick.
