Smith-Schuster's suspension upheld, Steelers WR to miss Week 14

Smith-Schuster's suspension upheld, Steelers WR to miss Week 14 Smith-Schuster's suspension upheld, Steelers WR to miss Week 14

"I didn't think [the Smuth-Schuster suspension] was warranted".

Bengals safety George Iloka had his one-game suspension overturned on Wednesday, leaving him with a $36,464.50 fine for his hit to Antonio Brown's head.

Later in the game, Brown was on the receiving end of Iloka's helmet-to-helmet, defenseless receiver penalty as he hauled in a game-tying TD in the fourth quarter.

So much so, that one risky play at the end of the game was hardly even noticed until Steelers kicker Chris Boswell brought it up.

"Listen, I never said [Gronkowski] was dirty", he tweeted.


The hit was exacerbated by Smith-Schuster standing over the concussed Burfict and taunting him before the Bengals linebacker was strapped to a backboard and driven off the field on a cart.

Tomlin met with reporters on Tuesday in Pittsburgh and said, "I'll acknowledge there were some unfortunate things in that game that we don't need in our game - by both sides". I get the league having player safety [and] that's fine but don't tell me those are the same offense. But, I think trying to be able to keep players free from - especially some of those head injuries that do occur - is a big focal point for the league. He argued that the league was inconsistent to give them equal penalties. Both JuJu Smith-Schuster and George Iloka were suspended for their helmet-to-helmet shots - though Iloka's was overturned - which spurred some to ponder what can be done about these unsafe plays.

"We don't want any of that stuff", Lewis said. We don't want to have a player hit with an illegal hit and then stood over. "You look at what Gronk did and what JuJu did, they got the same suspension".

Both players should be back for the Patriots' and Steelers' massive AFC showdown in Week 15 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.

The play in question saw Smith-Schuster's lay a hard block on Burfict during a 12-yard reception by his teammate Le'Veon Bell.
