* The rule for placing players with less than four accrued seasons on injured reserve totally slipped my mind when recording. But basically, teams must initially keep these players on the 53 man roster, then once it’s announced, they can then move them to season ending injured reserve. So, this is what the Bears will do with wide out Cameron Meredith, and if a “wink-wink” injury happens to rookie lineman Jordan Morgan, he may get a red-shirt treatment.
