The Detroit Lions have taken wide receiver Golden Tate off the physically unable to perform list, the team announced Monday.

Tate was placed on the list last week due to a shoulder injury he suffered during the spring, which kept him out of the Lions' June minicamp.

Entering his fifth year in the NFL, Tate signed a five-year, $31 million contract with Detroit this offseason after beginning his career with the Seattle Seahawks. He had a career-high 898 receiving yards last season, helping the Seahawks win the Super Bowl.

Defensive end Ziggy Ansah and wide receiver T.J. Jones remain on the PUP list, though Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reported neither player is expected to remain on the list for long.

The Lions are holding their first practice of training camp on Monday afternoon.
