A player may be placed on the practice squad for a third season if the team has at least 53 pleyers on its Active and Inactive lists during the time he is a member of the team. Practice squad eligibilty is outlined in the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the players and owners. Section 4 of the CBA states: "The practice squad shall consist of the following players, provided that they have not served more than two previous seasons on a Practice Squad: (i) players who do not have an Accrued Season of NFL experience; and (ii) free agent players who were on the Active List for fewer than nine regular season games during their only Accrued Season(s). An otherwise eligible player may be a practice squad player for a third season only if the Club by which he is employed that season has at least 53 players on its Active/Inactive List during the entire period of his employment.
A player shall be deemed to have served on a Practice Squad in a season if he has passed the club's physical and been a member of the club's Practice Squad for at least three regular season or postseason games during his first two Practice Squad seasons, and for at least one regular season or postseason game during his
third Practice Squad season. (A bye week counts as a game provided that the player is not terminated until after the regular season or postseason weekend in question."

In the NFL, the teams are allowed to have 53 players on their roster. Of these 53 players, 45 are allowed to dress for a game. The players on the roster that don't dress for a game are considered to be on the 'practice squad'. Should a team decide to cut one of those players on the practice squad, it is called a 'practice squad deletion'. In the same vain, if a team picks up a player and adds him to the practice squad it is called a 'practice squad addition'.
The official playing roster of an NFL team is limited to 53 players. The total including the practice squad is eighty players. Injured reserve players are counted against this total but may not play or practice for the current season.
Practice Squad players do not travel to away games with their respective teams. Practice squad players are not elligible to play in games until they are added to their team's 53 man roster, so it would be pointless to bring them on the road. Check the link below for the portion f the NFL CBA that covers the Practice Squad.
It used to be 80 players, but since the 2009 training camps it's been 90 players. They usually have to cut down to about 53 players in a season.
