BEREA, Ohio (AP) -Wide receiver Joe Jurevicius and offensive lineman Ryan Tucker were placed on the active physically unable to perform list Wednesday as the Cleveland Browns opened training camp.
Jurevicius, who caught 50 passes - 29 on third down - last season, has had two operations on his right knee since the end of last season. His recovery took a major setback when he contracted a staph infection.
Browns general manager Phil Savage said the players can remain on the active list through the mandatory cutdown to 75 players. After that, if the team places an injured player on the list, he must miss the first six games of the regular season.
The 33-year-old Tucker broke his hip during mini-camp in May and had surgery in June. He has made solid progress in his recovery, Savage said. Tucker played both right tackle and guard last season after being suspended for the first four games for violating the NFL's policy on anabolic steroids and related substances.
Savage was asked if he expected both players back for the regular season.
``For Ryan, we feel good about where he is,'' Savage said. ``With Joe, it's a little up in the air right now. Unfortunately, it took a turn for the worse while we were gone on vacation, but we are still hopeful to have him. It could be for the first part of the season and it may be further down the line.''
Wide receiver Donte' Stallworth, signed by the Browns as a free agent in March, was kept out of the club's first workout with a hamstring injury.
