Practice Squad Rules
- Each week teams can elevate two players to the gameday roster, and this can happen with a player three times before he needs to be signed to their active roster.
- Practice squad players are free agents and able to sign with any other team's active roster, i.e., current clubs can not block a move to another 53-man roster. They can offer their practice squad player an active roster contract to stay.
- If a player signs with another team's active roster he must stay there for at least three weeks.
- A practice squadder can not leave one practice squad for another.
- A practice squad player may not sign a contract with his team's next opponent after 3 p.m. (CT) six days prior to the game or 10 days prior in bye weeks.
- Teams can promote an additional practice squadder 90 minutes before kickoff if the team is replacing a player with a positive COVID-19 test result.
Practice squad eligibility
- Players with zero accrued seasons of NFL experience (rookies).
- Any number of players who have not accrued at least nine games in an NFL season.
- Up to four players who have accrued no more than two NFL seasons.
- Up to six players with no limitations on experience (vested veterans).
