    Who is the QB on our practice squad? Do we have five on our roster? Schaub, Rosenfels, Gray, Brink, and Boyd?

    If Boyd (or whoever else it is) is on our roster. How old is that person and how much longer can they remain on the practice squad. I sure would like to find this out! Rep for those who help.

    It is Boyd, and he is 25, but I don't know the intricacies of how practice squad eligibility works.

    He played for Arizona in our preseason game against them last season. He did alright. We picked him up when Schaub started doing the injury dance near the end of the year. He's still practice squad eligible I believe.

    I tried to dig a little more info up, but I'm not clear on it... it says a player can't be on the practice squad more than three years - but I don't know if that's three years total in their career - or three years per stint with team. I *think* it's per stint with team, and if that's the case then I believe Boyd would have two years of eligibility left if he's not called on to be on the active roster.

    You can't be on the practice squad for any team for more than two seasons. You are also ineligible if you are on the active roster for 9 or more games in a season. Boyd is no longer eligible and will be cut at some point.

    Was he on the active Texans roster for longer than 9 games? Or was it some other team?

    He was on the Arizona practice squad for 2006 and Texans practice squad for 2007.

    To clarify--you can't be on the practice squad for more than two years total--doesn't matter if it is one team or more.

    Right, see, I thought he was a rook in '07.
