Report: Patriots WR Mohamed Sanu Activated From PUP

Devon Clements

At no surprise, Mohamed Sanu's time on the active/physically unable to perform list was very short. The veteran receiver has passed his physical and has been activated from PUP, according to ESPN's Field Yates. 

Sanu underwent ankle surgery in March, and Drew Lieberman -- a WR coach that has been living with Sanu this offseason -- told PatriotMaven in early June that Sanu was way ahead of schedule in terms of his recovery timetable. When Sanu was placed on PUP this past Sunday along with running back Sony Michel and special teams standout Brandon King, the expectation was that Sanu's stint on that list would be short-lived. Such is this case. 

Sanu - 30 - is entering his first full season with the Patriots. Last year after the Falcons traded him to New England in exchange for a second-round pick, Sanu accumulated 26 receptions for 207 yards and one score in eight games. However, he hurt is ankle in the team's Week 10 win over the Eagles, and continued to battle through the injury for the remainder of the season. Sanu's ankle never full recovered, which is why he had surgery this offseason.

Sanu could be in for a big season, especially with Cam at QB

I agree. Though my take is that Harry will be more productive, we will for sure see a much better version of Sanu than we saw last season.
