    Affected him the "last couple of weeks", he came in today "it was black and blue" and he "can't even pick his leg up."

    STASH!

    I think Graham was winning the competition anyways.. his kicks have been straight down the middle from 50+. I'm also relieved that we're going into the season with a vet.. I really didn't want to rely on a rookie in the playoffs. Bullock is the future, but I'll take Graham right now.

    How exactly do the IR rules work? I know the player isn't allowed to practice with the team even when healthy, but are there limits on contact with the team, such as team meetings and rehab?

    By the way... is there some sort of criteria for being placed on the IR? Is anyone checking, if the player really is injured?

    They're still allowed to go to meetings and be with the team. It's what LeStar Jean did last season. He went to all the meetings, took mental reps, and said it has paid dividends this season.

    I've not researched it formally but they're not allowed to practice with the squad. I think I remember references about them working on different fields with the trainers rehabbing. They have full access to the facilities as well to work on their injuries with the training staff.

    Maybe they hire someone to nightstick these guys in the leg, Nancy Kerrigan style.

    Me to. I mean we got to free up a spot in the WR roster for a vet coming off of the waiver wire Friday when the league has its 53-man roster deadline.

    I think the rules say something about a player who won't be immediately available to the team. If my memory works correctly practices are supposed to randomly monitored by the league for this type of violation. also, any evidence gather from media, tweets,visiting free agents could be used against a team.

    That said, to answer the implied question. yes, teams put players (especially young ones) on IR even though the injury is not truly season-ending and yes those players sometimes manage to "practice." this is probably not as rampant as some of the members of this board assert, but is very common practice...not every rookie who winds up there has a fake or exaggerated injury.
