The NFL's competition committee has grown uncomfortable with the league's stricter roughing the passer rules, but are unsure if amendments will be made this season, according to NFL Network's Judy Battista.
Committee members are scheduled for a conference call in the first week of October. Of particular concern to the group is Clay Matthews' penalty in Week 2 that cost the Green Bay Packers a win over the Minnesota Vikings.
The NFL ushered in a more rigorous set of rules against contacting the quarterback before the season in an effort to keep the game's biggest stars healthy.
The new rules have led to confusion, frustration, more 15-yard penalties, and more stoppages during games.
