What is a covered tight end?

A covered Tight End is a Tight End with a Wide Receiver outside of him on the line of scrimmage. If you want a Tight End eligible for a pass, he must not be covered up by another player since the only eligible receivers are those with the correct number (not 50-79) who are either in the back field or the last men on the line of scrimmage. Therefore having a player outside of the Tight End on the line of scrimmage is "covering" him up. A covered Tight End is legal for run and pass as long as the covered Tight End is not going out for a pass.

What is the difference between a tight end and a wide receiver?

A tight end lines up within the two yard zone at the end of the offensive line. The tight end normally is comparable in size to an offensive lineman but is an eligible pass receiver.

Which players are eligible to receive passes?

There are 11 players on offense, generally arranged something like this:WR1 X X X X X TESR QB WR2RBOn the front line, there are five down linemen (marked with "X"), and two other players. In my example the extra two are one wide receiver and one tight end. The players on the end of the line are eligible to receive passes.Any player coming out of the backfield is eligible to receive a pass (SR, WR2, RB)On certain trick plays, the QB can hand off the ball and then subsequently receive a pass, so the QB is also an eligible receiver.NOTE:QB = QuarterbackRB = Running BackWR1, WR2 = Wide Receiver 1 and Wide Receiver 2SR = Slot Receiver
