NFL, NFLPA Agree to Changes to Injured Reserve, Practice Squad

GREEN BAY, Wis. – The NFL and NFLPA agreed to revised injured reserve rules on Wednesday, with eight players allowed to return to action during the upcoming season.

According to a memo posted by NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, a player designated for return from injured reserve is eligible to return to practice or the 53-man roster after four games have elapsed since the date he was placed on injured reserve. That’s games, not weeks, so the team won’t get a break in the case of a bye.

Last year, it was a minimum three-game absence.
