NFL will retain modified IR rules, allowing unlimited players to return

Yahoo! Sports

The NFL made official what had been anticipated: It will retain the modified injured reserve rules from last season, Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports.

The league made changes to the rule last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the move proved popular with teams, coaches, players and fans. Thus, it is back in 2021.

An unlimited number of players can return from a team’s injured reserve list, and they are eligible after missing a minimum of only three games.
