Players are eligible if they have participated in less than 20% of the scheduled season (5 games), and the illness or injury occurs in the first half of the season. The illness or injury must result in an incapacity to compete for the remainder of the season. Players who have already had a red-shirt season or a prior waiver are not eligible.
