    Havent noticed him down there, he is riding a scooter after all. If anything he'd be out of harms way up in the booth with the owner and JR..

    There is a window of time they have to re-activate him right? Can you bring somebody from IR if you're starting the playoffs?

    Broken ankle with ligament damage. Hate to bring the wet blanket to the party, but near zero chance of DW being able to significantly contribute this year. DW may not have given up hope for this year, but I’m sure his doctors have.

    Really? I must have missed that. I know they have the "IR Designated for Return" list that players come off of after 8 weeks, but I thought that had to be designated when they were placed on? Since he wasn't designated for return and has been on IR more than 8 weeks, I thought he was done for the year, by rule.

    Injured Reserve (IR)
    NFL teams are permitted to place any number of players on Injured Reserve at the start of the season. Any player on the IR list counts against the salary cap, but not against the 53-man roster limit. These players are ineligible to play again for the same team during the current season, but they can be cut and then go on to sign with another team. These players may not practice with their team at any time, but can attend team meetings and be around the team. Last year for the first time the NFL changed the IR rules to allow for two NFL players from each team to be eligible to come off IR after eight weeks of being on the list...

    IR-Return Designation
    Not everyone who ends up on IR has to see their season end for good. Players must remain on IR for eight weeks before being eligible to rejoin their teams in Week 9 via the IR-Return Designation. The NFL changed the IR-return designation in 2017 so that teams are allowed to bring two players back from IR. Previously, the rule allowed just one player to return from the list.

    This was a great change for teams as most clubs have more than one injured player capable of returning at some point in the season.

    Last year, the NFL changed the IR with return designation so that you no longer have to designate the player who will get the designation at the time they are placed on the list. Now, teams can bring back any two players they've placed on IR at any time after the eight week mandate to be on the list has been met.

    Previously, if a team wanted to use the one return designation spot, they had to declare it when the player was placed on IR. Now, they can just see who is getting healthy quickly, and take them off IR after they’ve been on the list for eight weeks (or more).

    One constraint here is that a player must be on the 53-man roster in Week 1 to be eligible for the IR designation to return. That means, anyone who was placed on IR before roster cuts were made to trim the roster down to 53 players is not eligible.

    Would be wild if Delanie made it back. If anyone could do it, it's him.
