its a competitive advantage issue. They only allow 45 or 46 depending on if you count the emergency QB as 1, becasue it accounts for 7 or 8 injuries for your team. If team A has 6 players injured and Team b only has 1, the team A can only play 47 where team B could play 52, which would be an advantage.
Agree or not but that is the reason as it was explained to me.
