The Patriots have placed newly signed defensive lineman Shaun Ellis on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, Aaron Wilson of FoxSports/scout.com reported last night.

Ellis told reporters yesterday that he had not yet taken the team conditioning test, but he is recovering from a hip problem. The Patriots must not be worried about Ellis' health or they would not have signed him.

Players on the PUP list during camp can be removed from the list and begin practicing at any time; any player who remains on the PUP list once the regular season begins must sit out the first six games of the year.
