The Kansas City Chiefs have added another two players to the active physically unable to perform (PUP) list ahead of training camp.

According to the NFL’s personnel notice for Tuesday, the Chiefs have placed both RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire and DT Cortez Broughton on the active/PUP list. The team had already placed four players on the list and since moved one player from that list to injured reserve.

Players on the active/PUP list count against the 90-man offseason roster and can be activated at any time during training camp ahead of 53-man roster cuts. If a player remains on the active/PUP list at the time of 53-man roster cuts, they can be placed on the reserve/PUP list to start the season. Players on the reserve/PUP list do not count against the active roster and must wait until four games have elapsed before they can resume practice and be activated to the 53-man roster.

This is not a great start to training camp for Edwards-Helaire, who enters a make-or-break season after a disappointing start to his NFL career. The former 2020 first-round draft pick has been hampered by injuries in each of his first two seasons in the league. This was set to be his first healthy offseason and to this point, it has been.

According to The Athletic’s Nate Taylor, the situation is not considered to be major and it’s possible that Edwards-Helaire is removed from the list in the ensuing days.

We’ll learn more about both Edwards-Helaire’s and Broughton’s placement on the active/PUP list when Andy Reid addresses the media on Wednesday. The team now has a total of five players on the active/PUP list.
