Per Adam Schefter. We can bring 1 player back from a shortened IR if they are sent to IR before the regular season. Trade deadline would be pushed to week 8 rather than 6.

Hunter would qualify, I don't think Kuper is on IR yet.

The player has to be placed on IR after 4:00 PM EST on Tuesday, September 4th to be eligible. Per Schefter

Kuper isn't. But the point (I think) is that if the new rule is in effect then maybe he could be put on IR if that's the way the team wants to go and they'd still be able to get him back.

He could, but there will be some restrictions about when he can be activated and what he can do while he is on IR and if we are hoping that Hunter comes back, Kuper could stay on the roster.

Haven't read up on Kupers progress but he should be able to go with a cast on in about 3 weeks

Jason Hunter will not be eligible...

Per Adam Shefter....

Only players with a "major injury" who are placed on Reserve/Injured after 4:00 p.m., New York time, on Tuesday, September 4, or thereafter during the season, will be eligible to be reactivated at a later time.

@adbrandt

From the NFL regarding new IR rule: teams can return one player placed on IR to their 53-player active list by tomorrow. Seems fair. Thus, players such as Desmond Bishop, etc. can be taken off IR before tomorrow then eligible for the in-season IR exception.

For sure do it with Kuper, and bring him back when he's ready in a few weeks.

That opens up a roster space for Ryan Harris for a few weeks...maybe even Cornelius Ingram.
