NFL officials largely have forgotten about the “lowering the helmet” rule that raised such a ruckus in the preseason. But the NFL’s senior vice president of officiating has admitted for a second consecutive week that officials missed a textbook violation of the rule.
Like Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt last week, Michel can expect a fine from the league, too.
Hunt lost $26,739 for unnecessary roughness after lowing his head to run through Broncos safety Justin Simmons.
It unfortunately doesn’t help Geathers, who the Colts ruled out this week with a neck injury.
