Michael Campanaro Opens Training Camp on Physically Unable to Perform List

Wide receiver Michael Campanaro will open training camp on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

The fourth-year receiver was placed on the PUP list Friday when quarterbacks and injured players reported for training camp. Campanaro suffered a toe injury in late May and missed the rest of the offseason program. The Ravens hoped that Campanaro would be able to return from the injury in time for training camp.

"It's not a serious injury, but it's a nuisance for sure," Head Coach John Harbaugh said last month when he announced Campanaro's injury. "He was practicing very well."

The Ravens could activate Campanaro from the PUP list at any point in training camp.

The 26-year-old receiver has battled injuries throughout his first three years in the NFL. He's dealt with calf, hamstring and back injuries the last few seasons, and he's played in 11 games since getting drafted in 2014.

When he's been on the field, Campanaro has proven to be dangerous with the ball in his hands. He has 12 career receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown, and five rushing attempts for 89 yards and another score. In addition to competing for a spot at receiver, Campanaro is also in the mix to be the starting punt and kick returner.

Cornerback Tavon Young was also placed on the PUP list after he suffered a torn ACL during the offseason program. It's unlikely that he'll be able to play at all this season. Undrafted rookie receiver Aaron Bailey and defensive end Patrick Ricard were also played on the PUP list.
