Detroit Lions place 5 players on PUP/NFI injury list prior to training camp

Detroit Lions rookies have already reported to training camp, and as physicals get underway, the team has announced that five players have been placed on injury lists.

To begin with, defensive tackle John Atkins, linebacker Austin Bryant, defensive tackle P.J. Johnson and offensive tackle Ryan Pope have all been placed on the Active/Non-Football Injury (NFI) list.

Before you start to get mad at these players for getting injured off the field, the Non-Football Injury list can include players who were injured in college, since those injuries did not occur within the NFL.
