Wednesday Why's

Why are so many players being placed on Injured Reserve now? This is a time when teams shelve players with, ahem, season-ending injuries. With two weeks left, teams know the league is not going to scrutinize these injuries too closely.

The primary reason for so many IR placements now – yesterday the Lions and Jaguars each put three players on the list – is so teams can take a look at younger players, especially players on their practice squads.
