Berea, OH - The Cleveland Browns have placed OL LeCharles Bentley on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform (Reserve/PUP) list, the club announced today. The roster move was made this afternoon to get down to the NFL mandated 75-man roster limit by 4:00 p.m. today.
During the first six weeks of the regular season, players on Reserve/PUP are allowed to attend meetings and continue rehabilitation at the club facility, but are not eligible to practice with the club.
After the sixth week, the club has a three-week window (Weeks 7-9) to allow a player on Reserve/PUP to begin practicing with the club. Once the player begins practice, he can practice for three weeks before the club must make a decision as to his roster status.
