Here are the latest transactions as the Patriots near the start of training camp on Thursday:
Placed on the non-football injury list — OT Yodny Cajuste (3rd-round pick).
Placed on physically unable to perform list (PUP) — DE Deatrich Wise, OT Cole Croston, DB Nate Ebner, RB Sony Michel, WR Demaryius Thomas, CB Ken Webster (7th round).
Since the Patriots require "injured" players to report to camp this weekend, that would likely mean that no one else is expected to be on the sidelines for the start of training camp. The only players allowed to start the regular season on the PUP list are those listed above. Everyone else has to be placed on injured reserve, and two have a chance to return after Week 8.
Isaiah Wynn not on PUP — that's not news — but Chung...
There's been some "news" made about IsaiahWynn not being on the PUP list. This is not a surprise and not news. Wynn was on the field during minicamp and while he didn't do much, he was dressed. That means he had already been cleared. Plus, on the final day, Wynn actually did some footwork drills.
Out of the players who sat out minicamp, it's newsworthy that PatrickChung has been cleared and will be ready to go. That's significant, after the serious arm injury he sustained in the Super Bowl.

That SonyMichel (knee scope) has not been cleared yet – there were reports he'd be ready for the start camp — isn't great, but
