In the national football league what does practice squad deletion mean?

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'.

Can a player on an nfl practice squad be moved up to the regular roster anytime in regular season should there be a spot due to an injury leaving a player out for the remainder of the season?

Yes. The player's current team can promote him or another team can sign him to a contract. Practice squad members are considered free agents therefore, should another team sign one of the practice squad members, no compensation is given to the player's former team. Should another team sign a practice squad player, the player must be placed on his new team's 53 man roster for a minimum of three weeks. The 2008 season salary for practice squad members is $5,200 per week.
