If true, Rex is even dumber than stated here so far.
That was the old rule....you were allowed to dress 45 players and deem a QB as your "emergency QB", in essence dressing 46 players, where he can play if the other two get injured (or its the 4th quarter)...If he played before the 4th quarter the other two QBs weren't allowed to re-enter the game...
The new rule, changed last season, now just let's teams dress 46 players
If what you're saying is true - the two teams, officials, crowd and TV audience all wait as he gets to run into the locker room and put his jersey on? Because most teams only activate (dress) 2 QBs
