The Miami Dolphins will be without William Hayes for the remainder of the season due to a torn ACL.

Plenty of negative externalities have already sprung forth from the NFL's bizarrely misguided new policies on contact, particularly when it comes to how defensive players tackle quarterbacks.

Hayes sacked Derek Carr in the second quarter Sunday, when he attempted to slide his body to the right of Carr's upon impact but lands awkwardly on his right leg.

"He was trying not to put his body weight on the quarterback and that happened", Gase said.

Hayes leads the Dolphins with two sacks this season. "He's one of our leaders and best run defender", Gase said.

It sounds like some sour grapes from Gase at first, but watching the clip of the play (above), it doesn't seem so far-fetched, and he may have a point. Hayes sustained the injury while appearing to try to roll over Carr, rather than land on him. Gase was asked if the new rule was to blame for the injury. "I'm just telling you what happened", Gase said. "That's going to be a tough one to swallow". "Long as the QB is safe", 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman tweeted in response to the news about Hayes. Critics point out it is hard to make a clean tackle without putting weight on a quarterback.
