And now how about the free square to finish it off?

If you haven’t been following the new NFL rule change closely, here’s a crash course: Teams don’t need to technically dress three quarterbacks anymore. The new “emergency third quarterback” designation rule allows teams to simply have two active quarterbacks, and then if both of them get either injured or ejected, a designated third option is allowed to come into the game even if he’s not on the active gameday roster.

So until Tanner McKee passes Marcus Mariota on the depth chart, he’s going to officially be listed as inactive for as long as Jalen Hurts and Mariota are healthy. He’ll get that emergency third QB designation every week, but he won’t be on the active roster.

Picking McKee as inactive is essentially a guarantee.
