TE Caussin to go on PUP

As expected Bills TE Mike Caussin will be going on the physically unable to perform list to start training camp.

That according to Bills GM Buddy Nix, though he did not indicate whether it would be active PUP or reserve PUP.

“Caussin will start the year on PUP, and we’ve known that all along and that was our mindset,” said Nix. “We think it’ll be a big plus in six to nine weeks if we need an H-back or another tight end then we’ve got one right there. That part will be a plus.”

Based on Nix’s comment it sounds as if Caussin, who tore his ACL late last season, would be on Reserve PUP. That means Caussin cannot practice until between Weeks 6 and 9 of the regular season. At that time if the club deems him fit to practice he can begin practicing for a period of three weeks before the team decides whether to put him on the active roster or injured reserve effectively ending his season.

If he’s on active PUP, then he can begin participating in training camp as soon as his surgically repaired knee passes a physical. Caussin did not participate in any of the spring practices.
