The Baltimore Ravens have placed LB Brendon Ayanbadejo (leg) and RB Matt Lawrence (leg) on the Reserve Physically Unable to Perform List, executive vice president/general manager Ozzie Newsome announced Tuesday morning.
By being placed on the Reserve PUP, Ayanbadejo and Lawrence are required to miss the first six weekends of the regular season. After the sixth weekend – for the Ravens following the Oct. 17 game at New England – these two can return to practice with the team. They can then practice up to 21 days. If they are not activated to the 53-man roster during this three-week span, they will remain on Reserve PUP for the remainder of the season, making them ineligible to return to the active roster.
