The NFL's competition committee will not establish a "Calvin Johnson rule," a league source confirmed to NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora Monday.
Newsday first reported the committee's decision not to change the rule, which states that a player must maintain possession of the ball throughout a catch.
Johnson clearly had control of the ball as he fell to the ground, established both feet as well as his left hand inbounds, but lost control of the ball when his right hand -- holding the ball -- hit the ground.
On the play, the nearest referee held his arms up to indicate a touchdown, but after conferring with the other officials the pass was ruled incomplete. After review, the call was upheld as an incomplete pass.
