What happened to the new rules?

Texans got called on that upper body/rough sack to Cutler, but the Texan player stayed in even after Cutler had to leave the game...

Is there a rule that says you eject a player for giving a player or QB a concussion? If so, it hasn't been enforced all year.

Hmm, I thought there was, with the increased focus on preventing head injuries...

Players have been fined for those types of hits - but I think that's it for now.

I don't think any such rule exists.

No such penalty is correct. The league could fine and suspend the player for a game afterwards but not during. Of course the REFs always have the ability to eject a player for unnecessary roughness but they don't typically do that on the first offense and never on a football related hit like that.. more often its related to after the play type of hits like when Ndamukong Suh was ejected for stomping on a player after the play just last season on Thanksgiving Day.

He may get fined but it didnt look like it was intentional.

OH....ok. That clears it up for me.

But still...wasn't the hit above the waist? That was not intentional? And the Texan was called for "unnecessary roughness" but that was offset by a Bears penalty, was it not?

Well, as a former RN-worked in ICU with trauma/ brain-injured patients, I wish for more rules or penalties to be set in the future. The aftermath of a TBI can be devastating...and permanent.

Anyway,
