I heard on the radio that he was put on the preseason PUP list. They said there's a preseason PUP and a regular season PUP list. I wonder who's right?

It's called Active PUP and Reserve PUP.

In preseason, you can put guys on Active PUP. You can recall those players to active status at any time, and they count against the 80 man roster.

Just before regular season, about the time of final cutdowns, you can put guys that aren't ready to play in Week 1 (but might be ready later) on the Reserve PUP. Those are the guys that have to sit out until after Week 6 but not later than Week 10. While on Reserve PUP, they don't count against the 53, but when you bring them back, someone gets cut.

Default Re: Dunta Robinson

If we all remember some of the earlier interviews, Dunta was gungho that he was way ahead of schedule and that he was going to be back sooner than people expected him to be back. Having heard his statements today. He was quite tentative in his statements of return, emphasizing that he was going to take it very easy, and he was going to take his return very conservatively and that he was going to basically take as much time as it takes. (which would be wise in any case)

A return by the end of this season would be a feat in itself..............a return to preinjury status by next season would be a welcomed small miracle.................a return in any capacity is not a given............almost like revisiting the Kailee Wong saga.

....or you can put them on Reserve PUP on the first day of camp if you think they aren't going to be ready on Week 1. I wish the Chron would distinguish between PUPs because teams like the Colts have parked quite a few guys on Active PUP with every intention of having them on the 53 for Week 1. It always confuses people.

If they indeed put Dunta on Reserve PUP tonight, a roster spot just opened up.

My mind is set that he won't play this year. I kind of hope he doesn't so that we are 1000% sure he is as healthy as possible. If he can recover great; if not well...he should call Big Nasty. =<

I hope he's really ok though. DRob is the person who started our D.

Dunta has been placed on the active PUP, according to houstontexans.com.
Essentially, all that does is leave open the possibility to put him on PUP when the season starts. If he were to practice with the team and not be on preseason PUP for only one practice, that would make him ineligible for regular season PUP.

So, he'll be do individual work along side the team until the team determines whether he can be ready for the start of the season.

According to HT.com, he's on the Active PUP. That means he will continue to count as one of the 80 roster spots. There's little doubt he'll be on the Reserve PUP when the season starts.

Chronicle got it wrong (for now). Who woulda figgered?

Well, if he's close to ready, they may decide to make him active. That would enable them to play him in week 3 or 4, if he's ready. PUP prevents him from playing until week 7.

that suggests to me though that they are willing to risk/waste a roster spot on him with the possibility that he could be ready to go before week 7. that's promising if nothing else.

He's already running and making lateral cuts. That means he's pretty far along in his ACL rehab. Certainly, that indicates he could be ready in 2 months. That would give him a game or two of live action before the Indy game in week 5. If they PUP him I think it will be due to a setback or simply because they want to play it very safe with him. I think he'll be ready to go by the end of September.

Makes more sense. I thought it a bit unusual to throw someone on Reserve PUP already (even if it's inevitable - not sure you can even do it procedurally until after preseason).

The chron article misleads because it implies 'the' PUP list results in the Week 6 thing. They don't explain the difference between Active and Reserve PUP and that's what confuses a lot of people. There are a lot of guys across the league on Active PUP right now that will be on the 53 for Week 1. Unfortunatley Dunta will not be one of them. Good to see the chron living up to expectations.

The statement in the chron: "The Texans placed cornerback Dunta Robinson on the active/physically unable to perform list today, meaning the 4-year veteran will miss at least the first six weeks of the season" is factually incorrect since active/PUP doesn't mean that at all. (aside from the high likelihood that Dunta will end up on reserve PUP)
