What are the medical redshirt requirements for NCAA football?


Answer by  ambruno19 (7)

It is actually a medical hardship that is granted to a player. A player can request a medical redshirt if they have played in 30% or less of the teams games and suffer a season ending injury. The NCAA can then grant a player an extra season beyone the typical 4 years of eligibility once requested by the player.

Actually known as a Medical Hardship Waiver, the "medical redshirt" is granted when a player suffers a season-ending injury in the first half of the NCAA season (counting championship play). Also, the applying player must not have played in more than two of the season's games or twenty percent of the school's contests, whichever is greater.

The NCAA does not recognize medical conditions as a reason to redshirt. If an injury occurs, it is treated as an injury, not as a season to redshirt.

You must be placed on the injured reserve (medically certified by a physician) and miss the entire year of football.

According to the NCAA a player can request to have a medical redshirt after they have suffered an injury but the stipulation to the rule is that they have to have played in 30% or less of the teams games.
