A few notes about training camp technicalities

Frank Victores-US PRESSWIRE

As we draw closer to training camp, we're passing along a couple of notes about training camp rules.

The NFL Players Association sent out a memo prior to training camp recently that detailed player compensation (veterans get $1,700 per week and rookies get $925 per week), simplified explanations with dates.

In context with the Bengals, the first day of training camp will only include physicals, testing, and meetings with no on-field activities except for running and conditioning. Practices conducted on the second and third day will be without pads or contact.

The fourth day allows one padded practice for no more than three hours plus one walkthrough. The CBA requires at least a three-hour break between practices and only four total hours allowed on the field for the entire day.

  • A padded practice that goes more than 60 minutes and is then cancelled counts as a full practice.
  • Players have 25 days following their release to file an injury grievance.
  • Teams are required to give players a day off every seven days and at least five days off during camp.
  • HGH population study blood sample will be done during training camp to generate a baseline for eventual HGH testing (player can't be disciplined).

A quick definition of a walk through, per Article 23, section 6.

The second practice on the same day may only be for a maximum of the remaining available on-field time, and shall be limited to only "walk-through" instruction (i.e., no helmets, full-speed pre-snap, and walking pace after the snap)
