Do we know the full Practice Squad rules and limitations?

For sure!

Franchises can carry 16 players in their PS on top of their active 53 active, main-roster players. Among these, 10 players must have fewer than two seasons of NFL experience. This was approved so NFL franchises can accommodate as many as six veterans on their practice squads.

The prerequisites for the practice squad are as follows:

  • Players with no prior NFL experience.
  • Players who featured on the active list for fewer than nine regular-season games in past NFL seasons.
  • Up to four players per team who have no more than two seasons of NFL experience.
  • Up to six players per team with no restrictions on the number of past NFL seasons.

Players stationed on the practice squad can be elevated to the active roster for games on a maximum of three occasions throughout the regular season. To facilitate a fourth elevation, the team must incorporate the player into the 53-man roster.
