(WVUE) - On the eve of the start of Saints Training Camp, it was reported wide receiver Brandon Coleman would begin camp on the physically unable to perform list.

The NFL Network first reported the news, which was later confirmed by NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune. It's not clear as to why Coleman will be placed on the PUP list. But, by doing it now, it gives the Saints the flexibility to put him there again to start the regular season if the injury lingers.

Coleman has played a key role for the Saints the past three season and established himself as the team's best run-blocking receiver. He re-signed with the Saints on a one-year deal in April after the team declined the chance to tender him as a restricted free agent.
