He can't practice with the team if he's on PUP. If we PUP'd Posey, he's working out on the sideline for the first 6 weeks, then trying to get into game shape for at least another three... possibly more. You saw how long it took before they were comfortable enough to put into the game last season with poorly playing LeStar & Martin.
This kid hasn't played much serious football over the last two years.
He'll take 12 snaps tonight, then he'll probably not be active for the following 4-6 weeks, until he's game ready.
We can have him in game shape by week 6 or sooner by getting him active now. Otherwise he won't see the field until week 8 or later.
