Abstract: Let $X(r)$ and $G(q)$ be finite groups of Lie type and $r$ and $q$ be coprime. If $G(q)$ is embedded in $X(r)$, then the Landazuri-Seitz-Zalesskii theorem implies that $G(q)$ is small relative to $X(r)$. We formalize this observation and illustrate how it can be used with some applications.
