French term or phrase:jokers médicaux
I suppose this must be some kind of 'wildcard'. But a medical wildcard? I would be grateful for any light that can be shed..thanks in advance for your kind help,
Un championnat se déroulant sur toute une saison, nul doute que l’incertitude sportive serait menacée si les effectifs disponibles à partir desquels est
composée l’équipe d’un jour variaient au cours de la saison. La possibilité de limiter, à une ou plusieurs saisons, la durée du contrat du sportif s’inscrit dans
la même logique que la limitation stricte des effectifs et les conditions précises de recours à des joueurs supplémentaires, tenant par exemple au nombre de blessés (jokers médicaux) ou à l’encadrement de recrutements en cours de saison (« mercato »). La durée du CDD sécurise la compétition par une adéquation entre la durée des saisons et la durée des contrats.
extra player (temporary transfer) allowed due to medical leave for another player of a given team.

Explanation: We do not have the same system in Britain, whereby if you have injuries in your squad then you are allowed to bring in 2 players a season (in French rugby - don't know about the other sports). Because of that I think it may be wise to leave "jokers medicaux" in the target text too, and either footnote it or leave it in brackets next to some horrendous English concoction - perhaps "jokers medicaux - [extra replacements who can be drafted in if a team is struck by an injury crisis]"
Explanation: (I.) SEASON-ENDING INJURY REPLACEMENTS
A team with a player lost to a season-ending injury can replace that player on its roster, while remaining responsible for the full amount of the injured player’s salary. International player limits still apply at the time a season-ending replacement is made (with the player being replaced not counting against those limits). http://xsorbit27.com/users5/fmscene/index.php?topic=18.new
(J.) SEASON-ENDING INJURY REPLACEMENTS
A team with a player lost to a season-ending injury can replace that player on its roster, while remaining responsible for the full amount of the injured player's salary. A player can be placed on the season-ending injury list once another player has been signed as a replacement. International player limits still apply at the time a season-ending replacement is made (with the player being replaced not counting against those limits). http://web.mlsnet.com/about/league.jsp?section=regulations&c...
