Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster out vs. Ravens as one-game suspension upheld

Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster out vs. Ravens as one-game suspension upheld

Cincinnati Bengals safety George Iloka also received a one-game suspension for a hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown in the end zone in the fourth quarter when Brown was deemed to be a defenseless receiver.

Gronkowski delivered a late hit on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White while he was down following an interception, and then on Monday night Smith-Schuster laid out Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict with a peel-back block and then stood over him after the hit.

Steelers rookie receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster absolutely lit up the Cincinnati star on the play, sending him crashing to the ground, which allowed Bell to keep on running towards the first down marker.

NFL Vice President of Football Operations JON RUNYAN issued the suspensions. I apologize for standing over him and that isn't me. Burfict is one of the NFL's villains, an oft-punished player due to dirty hits.

Smith-Schuster can expect a fine for the hit, with many calling for a suspension. After I seen the replay I think I should've held back a little bit more from blocking him.

Burfict was strapped to a backboard and taken out of the game after the nasty hit, and he was placed on the league's concussion protocol.

Less than four minutes later, Antonio Brown took a helmet shot from Iloka after scoring a game-tying touchdown. "You do the wrong things, you get the wrong things out of it". All three plays were similar in nature - crushing hits to the head or neck area that could have (or did) result in serious injury - but different in circumstance, intent and execution.

Both players can return to their team's active rosters on December 11.

However, that doesn't justify what Smith-Schuster did on Monday night. "Praying he gets better". The Bengals set a franchise record with 13 penalties for 173 yards.

"But they did last night in an instance or two".

"I'll acknowledge that there were some unfortunate situations in that game that we don't need in our game", Tomlin said. "We have a responsibility to make this game as safe as it could be possibly be". "And just the way he went down, it was just like - I don't know, man", Burfict said.
