So that would mean that 3 weeks of Nichols salary didn't count against the cap. Considering he's the highest paid Bomber, that's some nice cap relief, even considering a roster bonus which counts against the cap no matter what.

He didn't come off until after game 4 ( this week ) going into game 5??

Players added to the 6-game injured list have their salaries excluded from the salary cap for the duration they are on the list. Teams have the option to remove 2 players from the 6-game injured list before their 6-game period is completed. If they do so, the player's salary while on the injured list counts against the salary cap. Otherwise, players must stay on the 6-game injured list until their 6-games is served, including playoffs. If this was not required, a loophole would exist where players could be put on the 6-game list near the end of the season for salary cap relief, but be available to a team for the playoffs. Once the Grey Cup is held, all players are released from the 6-game injured list; it does not carry over to the next year. Prior to 2014, a 9-game injured list was used, but this was changed to a 6-game list in the 2014 CBA.

You're correct. I was so focused on game 5 this week. My bad.

So no savings removing Nichols early from the IR. No problem he's our QB.

Not saying this isn't correct but we are talking about the CFL and they have been known to update roster policies without any public announcements.
