Giants place UDFA WR Alex Wesley on PUP list to start camp

Rookie receiver is only player placed on PUP thus far

NFL: New York Giants-OTA Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

The New York Giants 2019 have placed wide receiver Alex Wesley on the physically unable to perform (PUP) list.

The Giants signed Wesley as an undrafted free agent out of Northern Colorado shortly after the close of the 2019 NFL Draft. Wesley dominated the FCS level, recording 2,060 yards and 10 touchdowns over the last two seasons — 1,010 yards in 2017 and 1,050 in 2018, with an average of 18.4 yards per catch in both seasons. He isn’t a big receiver at 6-foot, 185 pounds, but his ability to separate downfield is intriguing. Wesley did sit out the 2019 Senior Bowl with a groin injury.

Players are only eligible for the PUP list until they have their first practice. The Giants can take him off the list at any time until Week 6 of the regular season. Players on PUP remain on the 90-man roster, but if they are still on PUP when the regular season begins they do not count against the 53-man roster.

Rookies practice on Tuesday. Veterans report to camp Wednesday and practice starts in earnest on Thursday.
