Week 2: Salary on Injured Reserve

Here is a look at the salary cap and contract dollars sitting on reserve lists in week 2 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.

For this week I added columns to show the change in the salary on reserve as well as the number of players. the Packers, Broncos, Chargers, and Football Team all had bad weeks while the Jets, Saints, Cowboys, and Ravens are just having bad years in general. The columns should be sortable if you click on them.
