JuJu Smith-Schuster gets one-game suspension

JuJu Smith Schuster Annihilated Vontaze Burfict On A Crackback Block

It was definitely a questionable play since Burfict took a shot to the head and neck area, and after the game, Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green criticized Smith-Schuster and said it was a "dirty hit". Smith-Schuster also appealed his suspension, but it was upheld by appeals officer James Thrash, also jointly appointed by the league and union.

Roethlisberger did say Smith-Schuster deserved to be fined for the play, though mostly because of how he taunted Burfict after the hit rather than for the collision itself.

Iloka's agent Ron Slavin said they felt a suspension was unnecessary for Iloka, who was flagged for unnecessary roughness on Monday night after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown that occurred in the end zone. He has continued to make a couple of key catches per week, and even had his second touchdown of the season a couple of games ago, despite dropping a pass earlier.

If not for the recent string of incidents, one has to wonder if a suspension would have been doled out to Smith-Schuster. "We already play a high-injury sport", said, via NFL.com.

"I didn't think it was warranted, I thought maybe a fine", Roethlisberger said of Smith-Schuster's discipline.

Burfict's actions after the hit upset Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin.

Along with suspending JuJu, the league also handed down a one game suspension to Bengals safety George Iloka for his hit on Antonio Brown. The unsportsmanlike conduct is not me. Brown was a game-time decision. Karma is karma. Karma is in life. He is a better sportsman than he displayed after the block and you got to acknowledge that. "You do the wrong things, you get the wrong things out of it".

Asked if that comment was related to Burfict, Brown said, "I ain't talking about nobody".
