The players put on the PUP list can return to practice once activated. However, if they remain on PUP list to start the regular season, they would miss at least the first six weeks.
Anderson, 24, was taken in the third round of this year’s NFL draft. He signed a four-year, $2,937,176 rookie contract with the Colts and stands to make a base salary of $539,500 for the 2016 season.
Unfortunately, Anderson’s rookie season ended after he suffered an ACL tear and was subsequently placed on season-ending injured reserve.
In 2015, Anderson appeared in nine games and recorded 31 tackles, one sack and two passes defenses for the Colts’ defense.
