Jackie Battle first victim of new rule

by Paul Raymond | Posted on Friday, September 20th, 2013

Tennessee Titans running back Jackie Battle was the first running back fined for a new NFL rule this year. The rule is unofficially called the “Trent Richardson rule” and calls for anyone who lowers their helmet outside of the tackle box to be flagged for unnecessary roughness. That is exactly what Battle did during Sunday’s loss to the Houston Texans and he’s been fined $21,000 for it.
