The NFL has voted to expand its current replay system to include more reviewable plays.

The plays that will now be reviewable under the amendments approved Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings include penalty enforcement, proper down, spot of the foul and status of the game clock.

The league also announced that the replay official and the members of the officiating department at the league office may now consult with the on-field officials during games to provide information on penalty yardage, proper down and status of the game clock.

The new rules are designed to help streamline the replay system.
