    Is it sometime on Saturday?
    Can they wait until they anounce the 45 for the day, an hour before
    the game?

    Teams must announce inactives 90 minutes prior to kickoff.

    Do you mean the inactives for a game, or are you talking about making a player part of the 53-man roster (i.e., sign a free agent, move somebody from PUP, NFI or the practice squad to the 53-man roster)?

    Oh, I see what he is asking now.

    I believe the deadline for that is 4 PM Saturday. Not 100% sure though.

    I always thought it was 90 min before gametime??? Its common for the team to tell the player the night before or earlier so they can make plans accordingly.

    Inactives: 90 minutes before the game

    Activating players to 45 man roster for this week: apparently Saturday 4pm (I always thought it was 24 hours, but I'll go with what pats1 said).

    I was wondering if they are going put Tate or someone else on the 53,
    if there is a cut off time for doing it.

    To activate players to the 53? I don't believe so - I remember reading somewhere once that it had to happen on Saturday.

    Belichick said today he would decide who the final two spots go to by tomorrow London time (which is really tonight?)

    He brought all the PS players along plus Tate and LeVoir, so that's the pool of players he has to chose from. There were four players who didn't make the trip (Light, Morris, Edelman, Taylor), so essentially four players on the 53 will sit if Belichick activates two from the PS/PUP (he won't sit those guys after activating them).

    but you wrote this yesterday, so does that mean that today is tomorrow, or do I have to wait until tonight?

    I'm hoping to find out tonight on Nunn/Tate as I'm struggling in a deep, deep fantasy league for a WR now Edelman is out and I'm setting off to Wembly early in the morning. My team should be the priority for all concerned :D

    You might have to wait until yesterday.

    (You have to wait until 4 PM EST Saturday. I think.)

    The Patriots have probably gone into their Saturday night meeting

    which will last 4 hours.

    Check the Patriot's website on Monday and see if they have

    added any new players to their roster. These will be the players

    they activated.
