The NFL is standing by its controversial new helmet rule.
In a statement released this afternoon, NFL Executive V.P. of Football Operations Troy Vincent said that while the league’s competition committee listened to feedback from players, coaches and officials Authentic David Desharnais Jersey , there will be no changes.
“The committee resolved that there will be no changes to the rule as approved by clubs this spring, which includes no additional use of instant replay,” Vincent said. “The committee also determined that inadvertent or incidental contact with the helmet and/or facemask is not a foul.”
