Move a Player On or Off Injured Reserve (IR)

The system will automatically place the IR (injured reserve) tag on a player once ESPN receives the report from the NFL. NOTE: Only players with the (IR) tag or (O) tag can be placed on IR (injured reserve). All other players must be moved to the bench if you do NOT want them on the active roster.
