FOXBORO - With the NFL season turning six weeks old last weekend, players on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list became eligible to practice this week. Veteran running back Kevin Faulk is one of them. So is Ron Brace. Teams have a three-week window in which to make a decision on their PUP guys.
