How many NFL Players are suit up on game day 

The 48-man team is a welcome change for the NFL, as only 46 players could suit up on game day for quite a while. In terms of the number of players permitted on the Gridiron at any given time, only eleven players from the active squad are permitted on the Gridiron during a scrimmage down. 

National Football League teams are allowed 53 players on their active squad, but only 48 can dress up for a game since the operational roster rules were changed recently. 

Another new change was increasing practice squads from 10 players to 16. Teams can poach practice squad players from other teams for their rosters if they leave someone out by either trading, waiving, or putting them on the PUP list. 

The League and NFLPA agreed to some new roster management rules that have been in effect since last season. Players placed on injured reserve will now be required to miss at least four games since the date the player was placed on the applicable reserve list.

That allocation will also include those on the non-football injury/illness lists. Any player who lands on IR more than once can be designated to return up to two times, both times counting against the eight-player maximum. 

Whereas on-field sessions could be at most two hours, the new schedule will allow teams a maximum of 90 minutes on Day 2 and 105 minutes on Day 3, with the two-hour limit kicking in for Days 4 and 5 of the ramp-up period.
