During a No Pack, the foremost Blocker continues to hold the opposing Jammer back while her teammates are satisfying the requirement to attempt to reform.

Is a Jammer who is blocked out of bounds subject to cutting penalties for skaters who are down, out of bounds, or out of play when the jammer exits the track?
