    Looks like Yates will get some "Active" Duty time

    I'm fine with this. Gives project guys like a Kordell Stewart or Terrel Pryor a chance to have a few snaps a game.

    What if a team chooses to have only 2 qbs? Can they still carry the extra man on the game day active roster or does it have to be a qb? If so, marginal qbs everywhere are loving this rule.

    If they choose to go into gameday with only two quarterbacks, then they can. They will also be able to dress another player of any position. They could dress another quarterback if they choose to, and he will be able to play without the other two getting injured.

    This might also mean we could see more "one-trick pony" QBs like Pat White get more playing time.
