I guess it will depend on who is the QB, and which teams are playing. And maybe if Goodell is present.
There's a little known subordinate clause in that rule (in very fine print) that lists QB's who are exempt and they are: Tom Brady (for whom the rule was written), anyone named "Manning", Aaron Rogers and Drew Brees.
This clause is followed by something very unusual for a legal document; a picture of a dart board with Ben Roethlisberger's face superimposed over it.
Curiously, there is no written explanation as to the exact meaning of this image or why it was included and repeated calls to the NFL for clarification remain unanswered.
