Anyone know how many days a week teams practice leading up to a Sunday game? Do all of them have Monday's & Tuesday's off or do they still have to report for assignments/meetings on those days?

Monday and Tuesday im sure are rest up days. a lot of time spent in the trainers room, sitting in ice baths. getting attended too, etc.. I would guess most teams probably practice 3 days a week. Saturday is off for traveling in most cases, maybe early morning run throughs.meetings, and Sunday its on!

They are probably involved in some way with football everyday.

Saturday is the final walkthrough

Monday and Tuesday players probably come in to watch tape and workout, doing small things giving their body a little bit of time to heal

Didn't the new CBA have a limit on practice days or was it practice days in pads?

They are only allowed 16 padded practices a season.

IIRC this is the general setup

Monday afternoon- Players come in to go over grades and tape from previous game
Tuesday- off day
Wed-Friday- Practice days
Saturday- walkthrough
Sunday- game
