As a service to viewers of the fourth quarter of tonight's game, I thought I would remind everyone of the rules for practice squad eligibility, as well as list which Eagles are (and aren't) eligible.
A player is eligible for the practice squad as long as
- He has not dressed (been on the 45 man roster) for 9 or more games during any prior single season; and
- He has only spent time on a practice squad in two or fewer seasons in his past
Who Is Eligible
All rookies, whether drafted or not; plus
Who Is Not Eligible
All of these ineligible players have dressed for too many NFL games in a single season during their career, except for Lawrie and Pope, who each have spent three separate years on a team's practice squad in the past.
You might think some of the above goes without saying ... but then you'd be surprised what I've read out there in the past.
