New Rule

Recommended Posts

Just came to agreement, or i just saw it i should say.. each team can activate 1 player off IR during the season.. such as that we can activate Brandon Hogan at some point during the season if he can get healthy, or the steelers can activate Decastro.

i think this is a great rule, and could help us and other teams out throughout the season. I guess we could see Hogan this season after all

No, we cannot activate Hogan. Rule only applies to players that are placed on IR after 4:00 PM on Tuesday, September 4th. We obviously already placed Hogan on IR before then.

I wish the NFL rule was more like MLB. 30 day IR or 60 day IR or 4 games or 8 games or whatever. With the salary cap and only being able to carry 53 guys sometimes teams just dont carry enough players for all the injuries ( like us with LB last year). If you could bring back injured players 8 games later instead of losing him for the whole season, it would help GM managethe roster much better.

He most certainly did:

Only players with a "major injury" who are placed on Reserve/Injured after 4:00 p.m., New York time, on Tuesday, September 4, or thereafter during the season, will be eligible to be reactivated at a later time.
