Sure seem to be quite a number guys limping off, though, and not a few of them are out for a period of time.

To me, it would be like legalizing pass interference in football. If there's a defensive player who can't contain a receiver, just pull him down...it's basically a talentless play that suffocates the offense without repercussion.
Wouldn't it be more like a pass rusher putting his arms up and blocking a pass?
