Waiver Dates and Deadlines
Tuesday, Aug. 29, at 4 p.m. ET - 53-man roster submission
The first important date of this whole process is already gone. It came on Tuesday, Aug. 29, at 4 p.m. ET and it marked the moment when all 32 NFL franchises had to submit their initial 53-man rosters for the 2023 season. You can find Baltimore's roster here, and also check out a breakdown of all cuts made by the Ravens here.
Players that were in the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) or Non-Football Injury (NFI) lists before the deadline had to be either activated or put in the reserve PUP/NFI lists.
In the latter case, those players are forced to miss the first four games of the 2023 season. In Baltimore, that's the case for LB Tyus Bowser, LS Nick Moore, and OG Andrew Vorhees. Bowser will return in Week 5 while Moore and Vorhees are lost for the year with season-ending injuries.
Wednesday, Aug. 30, at 12 p.m. ET - Waiver claim deadline
On Wednesday, Aug. 30, at 12 p.m. ET waiver claims will stop and not be valid anymore for the players cut ahead of Tuesday's deadline.
At Noon ET on Wed., teams will receive a notification informing them about whether or not they won their bids for the players they claimed, based on the waiver priorities set by the NFL.
Wednesday, Aug. 30, at 4 p.m. ET - IR back to the roster
Later on Wednesday, players who are still listed on the injured reserve as initially shown in the 53-man roster would be forced to remain there for the entire season, thus forfeiting the year unless they get released and sign with another franchise.
However, after the Wed., Aug. 30, at 4 p.m. ET, players can once again be put on the Injured Reserve and only miss four weeks of time (as it will be the case with Tyus Bowser in Baltimore, so he doesn't have to miss the full 2023 season and can return in Week 5).
