Troy Vincent, NFL Vice president of football operations, made a comment on the committee’s plans yesterday according to The Washington Post. The NFL is debating to see if dangerous hits can result in an automatic suspension or ejection. Currently, the NFL has the rule for defenseless players that get hit unnecessary which results in a 15-yard penalty. Players can be disqualified if hit was flagrant.
Vincent went to Twitter, “We’ll communicate this to our coaches and players with video examples of flagrant hits that may result in ejection or suspension”.
