The only difference that if you use the new rule you don't have to cut anyone. This has no actual bearing on the injured player if I understand right. It affects bubble guys...That's why we were discussing who was going to get cut...
You've got 53 player slots. If you DON'T do anything with Demps, you're going to have to cut one of those guys to make room for Nolan.
If you put Demps on the regular Injured Reserve, he's done for the season. Kubiak said Demps wasn't going on Injured Reserve, which means... someone's gotta go.
Someone brought up the option of putting Demps on the newfangled Injured Reserve, which if they did, no one would have to be cut until Demps came back. But I think you only get 1 newfangled Injured Reserve. So the question is, do you want to use that 1 newfangled Injured Reserve on Demps or do you want to save it in case someone else that's more important gets injured.
