    I think the team has already seen him run 60 yards, and the full route tree, and to thier satisfaction or he would have been already cut. Now it is just doing it after a CB puts a fist in his chest. Yeah he is declining but he is declining from being a top 20 WR, I will be pleased as punch to see him be an average #2 skill wise sharing the field with Gordon, Endlemen, Harry and our backfield.

    Given the injury and the fact that he’s gotten no time in with Brady, I’d be pleasantly shocked if DT comes off PUP before Week 1. Very good to see Edelman back, though.

    One thing that's worry-some about our WR's other than Edelman is their lack of ST's pedigree. So who can play ST's from that bunch?? Seems like we have some good outright WR's but non would win any ST's award. BB like being creative with his game day Roster and this WR group lacks Good ST's players and Braxton Berrios doesn't count.:rolleyes: Can't dress em all if they are one dimensional roster types.

    Harris may have shot. Berrios to PS or Pats Midwest or Pats South.

    If he practiced (I haven’t read yet), he had to have been taken off. If not and they keep up there, he’s stuck there for the first 6 games. It will be interesting to see how close they think he is. For example, can he return in a month? If so, he should be on the active roster.

    Is it too early to talk about 19 - 0?

    PUP players have participated in warm ups across the summer and then gone to work on conditioning. After the open trading camp cutoff reporters can only view warm ups. So seeing the player doesn’t necessarily mean he is off PUP.

    I agree that keeping DT on PUP is better for the Patriots. He is coming off a bad injury in December. They have other receivers available. They could use him in November.
    However staying on PUP is not good for Thomas. Presumably the medical staff will clear him when he is ready, not when it’s convenient for the Patriots.

    a.) Assuming DT is healthy enough to play week 1, here's my updated WR rankings:

    Edelman (Think his thumb is fine by now if he's suiting up)
    Meyers (Best WR all camp)
    Dorsett (System experence and dependability)
    Gordon (On NFI)
    Harry (dinged up)
    Thomas (has not cut yet)
    Slater (Ace gunner)
    =============
    Berrios (Maybe re-sign to PS)
    Harris (I think PUP or injury settlement)
    Patteron (Long shot)
    Davis (Longer shot)

    b.) It is more likely that we keep 7 WR's now...maybe go short at TE with Watson suspended (2 TE's)....and/or possibly let Hoyer walk to save another roster slot....

    C'mon man, you're a vet. You should know Harris can't go on PUP after practicing even once.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Harry on both of the coverage teams. That kid is one tough dude.

    Just saw that he didn’t actually practice. At least it’s a step in the right direction.

    There's 0 chance DT stays on PUP to start the season, look at his contract.

    So many conflicting reports by "reporters" today...hard to tell who practiced and who was limited.

    Average return to play is 9-11 months depending on type of surgery. Seems borderline.
