    As of yesterday. There is a 3-week period from the day after the 6th regular season game (Buffalo) to the day after the 9th regular season game (New York) that Pass can both begin practicing and come off the PUP. If he is not off the PUP by the day after the Jets game, he goes to the I.R.

    All along, i've expected Patrick to jump onto the 53.
    Three weeks is plenty of time - alas! - to incur another IR ... whose roster spot
    Pass would fill.

    Since he is a versatile player, who essentially earns his keep on the kick teams,
    if we avoid season-ending injury during that span, i would expect
    LeKevin Smith or Pierre Woods to be cut
    ... and re-signed to the practice squad ... perhaps at full regular salary.

    A minor point based upon how I recall PUP works... they have to activate him from the PUP list by the date you said, but he then has up to three weeks to practice during which time he isn't on the 53. So he could in theory come back to practice after the Jets game but the Pats wouldn't have to make a final decision on him until after the Detroit game December 3. This is what they would likely do if he's OK but they view him as injury insurance.

    One more thing...

    In my previous message I originally typed that I thought you were off by a week, that players were eligible to come off PUP after week 6 not game 6. But when I went looking for confirmation all I could find was Miguel's FAQ which clearly quotes someone saying "game 6", so I deleted that part.

    But I now found a counterexample, from this past weekend. The Houston Texans activated K Wong from PUP prior to their game against JAX on Sunday, and he played. Like the Pats, they have already had their bye. Thus he was activated after week 6 but before his team's game 6.

    So I believe the agent quoted regarding PUP in Miguel's FAQ is wrong, and all the dates already given in this thread move up a week. If so, Pass must be activated to practice after Indy rather than after the Jets and if he is, then a final decision must be made after Chicago (3 weeks). At this point I can't be completely certain but that's what I believe.

    Yeah I think we really need to have Pass back on the roster...He is so precious to a team...Look at some examples - He throws the football up for grabs when going down with a Ham problem and wears a ski hat in the locker room with a disgruntled players number who was traded a week before - thats exactly what player we need back on the roster:rolleyes: - GET RID OF THE BUM AND KEEP OUR 4 RBS/FBS NOW!

    I saw the same thing with Wong and figured Miguel's page was wrong.

    I'll try to find confirmation.

    So it turns out Miguel's page is indeed incorrect:

    What has Pass ever brought to the team we're not getting a better version of from other players?

    It seems that his main value is versatile depth, so why not dawdle on bringing him back?

    I expect Pass back on the roster. As for the "one play and done" fans, I'm glad you're not calling the shots for the club, Tom Brady would be in Miami whipping up on your perfect players.

    And how does Pass wearing a #88 knit cap make him a problem?

    Mike Reiss reported Belichick comment on Oct. 16th which was also probably a clue that Pass could have started practicing but wasn't going to:

    "Belichick was asked questions on a few different topics.
    * On if running back Patrick Pass will be removed from the team’s physically unable to perform list this week, Belichick said that won’t happen."
