1. If a player’s helmet comes off during live play, he must leave the game for at least one play.
2. When a ball-carrier’s helmet comes off, the play is immediately whistled dead.
3. If a player who is not carrying the ball loses his helmet, he must immediate cease participation in the play (no tackling, blocking, etc.). Officials are given some ‘gray area’ jurisdiction over the time when the helmet is lost and a player stops participation. ‘Prolonged’ continued participation is punishable by a 15-yard penalty.
No more 3-out-of-4 snaps fastened. This is going to burn FSU big time, mark my words.
