I'm pretty sure no one is going to rush him back. If he's off PUP, its because he's probably even ahead of schedule.

Re: Saints to Activate Sheldon Rankins from PUP List

Payton has been very conservative of letting players practice over the past couple of years if they were not physically recovered. Even if not in the lineup by week one, Rankins there week three/four is a very tangible asset. Our defense has just kicked up a large notch.

Dare I say ...

19-0 Baby!

He needed to be activated before opening week, otherwise be wouldn't be eligible to return until week 6.

He isn't necessarily ready to return now.

And he wouldn't even be able to practice either.

And I thought the new rules sidelined PUP's until week 8 now.

Anyone know if we needed to make this move in the preseason?
Rankins doesn't count against the 53-man roster until activated, playing...

Because he's coming off the PUP list before the start of the season, he can come back at any time until Week 7, then he has to be activated by then...

Payton and Rankins both said in Presser that Week 1 is unrealistic, may be a few weeks into the season...

Also, Onyemata won't count against our initial 53 because of his mail order business...

So, we're initially gonna have two extra players on the active roster Week 1, with Onyemata (SUS) and Rankins (PUP) not counting against the 53-man roster...

It's not that my way is the right way, I just make the right way my way...

Not exactly all the way, he still has to build up his conditioning, he has to regain his strength, flexibility, and balance in the injured leg; and there's probably gonna be a little scar tissue that has to be worked away...

Yeah.. it's a move to get him back on the field sooner than later, procedurally for the NFL. He might be ahead of schedule, but still probably not quite ready to start game 1.
