#Dolphins coach Adam Gase says DE William Hayes, who has 2 sacks, is out for the season with a torn ACL. The injury occurred the he was trying to not put his bodyweight on the QB.

Do they fine the QB's in cases like these? :D

Here is the whole story

https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/dolphins-defensive-starter-out-for-season-and-nfl-players-are-mad-about-how-he-got-injured/

its a very bad rule that gets defensive players hurt in trying to obey it.

BTW, does everyone recall Jack Lambert, an All Pro type MLB for the Steelers in the late seventies, early eighties?

Back then he did not like the rules favoring the QB.  He said well, why don't they put ballet leotards on them if they are so different than everyone else.
