Wheel protector to avoid rear derailleur entangling

I know there are plastic protectors (better name ?) to prevent the chain from dropping inside from the cassette (I have one)

But can you get extra large rear wheel 'protectors' that might stop a rear derailleur from entangling with the wheel (major malfunction) ?

I just had this problem (probably RD too short for amount of teeth). It wouldn't have stopped the malfunction (chain went outside the pulley) but if it may have stopped it entangling with the wheel that would have been something ? I think entangling with the wheel bent the RD and dropout to the max.
