Roger Goodell and the National Football League are once again cracking down on players. This time, the league is limiting the type of facemasks players can wear, according to the Associated Press.
The NFL is prohibiting any non-standard facemasks. Thus, the facemasks that Robert Mathis and Darnell Dockett wear will be illegal to wear for the upcoming season.
The reason? Well, the NFL didn't exactly give one. All league officials said was that the only exception to the new rule would be if a medical condition forced a player to wear a certain facemask. Thus, Justin Tuck of the New York Giants and Chris Canty of the Baltimore Ravens will be able to wear their facemasks, according to the Baltimore Sun.
