Dolphins Player Tore ACL Trying to Avoid Roughing the Passer Penalty

Dolphins lose defensive lineman William Hayes for season blame the QB protection agenda

Under NFL rules introduced this season created to offer more protection to quarterbacks, defenders must avoid following through after making a tackle or risk a 15-yard roughing-the-passer penalty.

According to ESPN.com: "Hayes appeared to shorten his last step - with his right leg - and attempted to roll over Carr instead of landing on him".

"He was trying to not put his body weight on the quarterback and that happened", Dolphins coach Adam Gase bluntly said Monday of Hayes' injury, via the Orlando Sentinel's Omar Kelly. Your foot plants awkwardly into the ground for a half-second, and boom.

Plenty of negative externalities have already sprung forth from the NFL's bizarrely misguided new policies on contact, particularly when it comes to how defensive players tackle quarterbacks.

Statement by Premier Doug Ford on the Ottawa Tornado
The City of Ottawa opened up recreation centres to allow people in the devastated areas to take showers or power their cellphones. He made the decision after speaking to Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson on Saturday, Ford told CFRA radio in an interview.

Hayes leads the Dolphins with two sacks this season. Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has been hit with questionable calls in all three of Green Bay's games. His loss is costly even though the front four was the Dolphins' deepest area. Gase was asked if the new rule was to blame for the injury.

This is a foul for roughing the passer - the defender lands "with all or most of the defender's weight" on the passer.

"It hurts. He was one of our leaders, one of our best guys in the locker room..."
