Tony Moeaki Comes Off PUP List, Joins Chiefs Training Camp

KANSAS CITY MO - SEPTEMBER 26: Tony Moeaki #81 of the Kansas City Chiefs makes a one-handed 18-yard touchdown catch behind NaVorro Bowman #53 of the San Francisco 49ers at Arrowhead Stadium on September 26 2010 in Kansas City Missouri. The Chiefs won 31-10. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)

Chiefs tight end Tony Moeaki returns to training camp.

Tony Moeaki has come off Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list and will join training camp, giving the Kansas City Chiefs a boost at tight end. Moeaki's absence from camp was seen largely as a precaution due to a minor knee injury that he had work on after the end of last season.

The former Iowa Hawkeye was a reliable pass-catcher last season for the Chiefs, catching 47 passes for 556 yards and three touchdowns during the regular season. He'll serve a similar role next season, though he'll now have to compete with Steve Breaston and rookie Jonathan Baldwin for receptions along with Dwayne Bowe.

While the PUP list sound scary, the designation is largely meaningless before the season starts. Players on the list for the start of the regular season are forced to sit out six games, however.
