Electrical Code and Protecting NM Cable

Installing and Protecting NM Electrical Cable – The NM Cable must be positioned and fastened so that the cable will be protected from damage especially when the wall coverings are installed.

Providing Protection for Electrical NM Cable
Electrical Code Question: In a wood framed wall with studs positioned so the wall cavity is 1-1/2″ deep.
How is a vertical length of NM cable supported on the edge of the stud.
The CJ appears to protect only the length of the cable within the support.
Is the balance of the cable protected by its flexibility to move out of the way?
