The NFL season is 106 days away and all 32 teams have started their organized team activities. Preparations have begun and training camp is around the corner. And all teams were given some clarity on rule changes for the 2022 season.

In a memo from the NFL, the league states that an agreement was made with the NFLPA on rules changes for the upcoming season. These rule changes are centered around roster movement throughout the season. A significant change from what teams were allowed to do last season.

In 2022, players who are placed on IR (injured reserve) will have to miss a minimum of four games (previously three games). Teams will be allowed to have eight players return from IR, which allowed unlimited players to return a year prior. Teams can place a player and IR and designate them to return twice as well.

All 32 teams’ practice squads will have a maximum of 16 players on them which was implemented in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic and will continue. In addition to this, practice squads can now have six veteran players with more than two accrued seasons on their practice squad a bump from two veteran players last season.
