It appears Kenneth Murray’s rehab still has a ways to go.

Ahead of the start of training camp on Wednesday, the Chargers placed Murray on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list on Tuesday per The Athletic’s Daniel Popper, a signal that he is not yet fully recovered from offseason ankle surgery.

The training camp PUP list works differently than the regular season version. Murray is eligible to be activated off the list at any time during camp, at which point he is allowed to practice with the team.

However, should the injury linger until the regular season, LA can elect to place him on the regular season list. That will keep Murray inactive for the first four games, down from six in previous years.

While on the PUP list, Murray can participate in meetings and use team facilities but cannot practice. As such, he’ll likely still be a visible part of camp.

The third-year linebacker is slated to start next to Drue Tranquill when healthy. In the meantime, veteran Troy Reeder will likely take his reps.
