Pre-Season NFL Injury Report


            Drafting this weekend? Don’t forget to take a look at the following NFL Injury Report first! Rosters will be cut to 53 players tomorrow, August 30th, at 4:00 PM EST. Teams will also assign 8 players to their practice squad at that time. Players assigned to the Reserve PUP list (Physically Unable to Perform) may not practice or play for the first 6 weeks of the regular season. Likewise, players assigned to the Reserve NFI list (Non-Football related Injury) also may not practice or play until at least week 7 of the regular season. Players assigned to the Injured Reserve (IR) list cannot return during the current season. Each team may also designate one player as IR-Designated for Return; that player may not practice for the first 6 weeks of the regular season, and may not be activated until after week 8. Players on suspension are also included in the following list, although I have only included players at fantasy-relevant positions (not including IDP). During the regular season, this NFL Injury Report will be published each Tuesday and Friday. Good Luck with your drafts!
