TE Ballard removed from PUP list

July, 23, 2013
Tight end Jake Ballard and defensive back Kanorris Davis both passed physicals on Tuesday and were removed from the active/physically unable to perform list and non-football injury list, respectively, according to a league source.

The move means that each is eligible to practice when training camp opens. Ballard is coming off of a major knee injury back in February 2012, while it is unclear why Davis was originally placed on the non-football injury list.

Ballard is a candidate to earn playing time as the Patriots await the return of Rob Gronkowski, who was placed on the PUP list on Monday.
Field Yates has previous experience interning with the New England Patriots on both their coaching and scouting staffs. A graduate of Wesleyan University (CT), he is a regular contributor to ESPN Boston's Patriots coverage and ESPN Insider.
