Week 1: Salary on Injured Reserve

Here is a look at the salary cap and contract dollars sitting on reserve lists in week 1 of the 2021 NFL season. The numbers include players on injured reserve, PUP, and the covid list. They do not include players on NFI or who are suspended. These numbers will change each week as new players are added to IR and some are removed and re-activated.

The Jets, Saints and Ravens are the teams most impacted by bad luck before the season even began while the Bills, Chargers, Chiefs, and Bengals are off to a good start.
