I think that's correct. He cannot practice on the field with the team. Okoye was so raw, he probably wasn't good enough yet to even warrant a PS spot. So if the team still wanted to keep him around, IR was a logical choice. He can still rehab and workout at the facility, be around the team, dive into the playbook, and workout at the many training facilities across the country to better his skills.
