NFL expected to discuss expanding ban on launching, helmet hits
By The Associated Press

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) ' The NFL is expected to look at expanding the ban on launching and helmet hits.

Atlanta Falcons President Rich McKay, the co-chairman of the league's competition committee, believes "the launch will be discussed more and more and eventually we will see helmet hits modified in the open field."

The competition committee recommends rules changes to the owners, who then vote on them at the annual March meetings. McKay's committee was influential in getting outlawed the technique of launching ' when a player leaves his feet and leads with his head ' against defenseless players.

McKay says the idea of potentially banning launching altogether was discussed last year.
