"Covering up the tight end"



Why is this a penalty on a running play? I thought the whole point of the penalty was that the TE became an ineligible receiver. If it's a running play, eligibility doesn't matter anymore.

I asked the same question in the game thread..... doesn't make sense... unless it's an NFL thing.

That's the only explanation I can come up with. Just an NFL rule that you can't ever cover up the TE.

re: "Covering up the tight end"


I'm with you.... if you're running the ball, what the hell does it matter how many men are on the LOS?.... I can understand 5 men in the backfield.... I can understand the TE being ineligible on a pass play.... I can't understand too many men on the LOS for a running play.
