The Bears have put outside linebacker Pernell McPhee on the physically unable to perform list due to a knee injury.
The PUP designation prior to the start of training camp means a player cannot practice but can attend meetings and receive medical treatment. McPhee is eligible to return to practice at any time during training camp.
McPhee is entering his third year with the Bears after spending his first four NFL seasons with the Ravens. In his two seasons in Chicago he has recorded 92 tackles, 10 sacks and 11 tackles-for-loss in 23 games.
McPhee also opened training camp last year on the PUP list because of a knee injury and remained on it into the regular season, missing the first six games.
