They must be designated to return, which i don't believe we've used thus far

We have opted to not use the 8 week rule on any of our players.
what is the drawback from designating a player for the 8 week rule if any compared to actual IR?

Only catch I know with it, is you can only specify a single player as such. I don't believe you're required to add them back to the roster or anything like that if they don't meet the timeline.

Its nothing but a bonus, no negatives really. After 8 weeks but as early as 6(IIRC) they can start practicing and if at the end of the 3 week deadline(negative?) they aren't up to speed to can place them on season ENDING IR but you can still choose to put them on the active roster if you feel they'll be up to speed soon(positive but it costs you a roster spot).

Thanks for the info. Sucks we didn't use it I guess they were waiting for a key contributor to go down.

and this is our fanbase people.


seriously watching RBs get to the outside on our defense, as well as the backups in there, this past Sunday really showed our issues. Haralson was great against the run. Not saying Aldon hasn't played well, but having Haralson on this team is an added benefit, and something to be like "who cares about that guy"..lol.

Says the guy who doesn't value (or has the ability to comprehend) line play.

Just as a suggestion, use smileys to indicate sarcasm. If you don't, I don't think you have any right to complain that people, who are unable to read your mind and can't hear your voice tonality, don't spot your sarcasm.
