  • JuJu Smith Schuster Annihilated Vontaze Burfict On A Crackback Block

Along with Smith-Schuster, Bengal safety George Iloka was also suspended for one game for a hit on Brown in the fourth quarter.

On Tuesday, the National Football League upheld the one-game suspension handed out to Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster over his vicious block and subsequent taunting of Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict. Brown, who caught the game-tying pass on the play, remained in the game.

To make matters worse, Smith-Schuster actually stood over Burfict and celebrated after the hit. 23-20 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night. There were four penalties for unnecessary roughness, one for unsportsmanlike conduct, one for taunting, one for roughing the passer and two 15-yard penalties for grabbing the facemask.

"I didn't mean to stand over him".

"I haven't had an opportunity to see the television copy often times particularly in HD - that provides the best case scenario", Tomlin said, per NFL.com "I'll stand by my statement last night that his actions after the hit are more disturbing than the hit itself". Then afterward he leered over him, taunting him.

"So I don't think anybody wants that, Coach Tomlin or myself or the clubs".

"You don't think Goodell doesn't know about what is going on?" Foster said according to Ray Fittipaldo of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Burfict has been at the center of the nastiness.

After the game, Brown yelled "karma" repeatedly. He kicked running back Roosevelt Nix during the game, drawing a $12,154 fine from the league.

Smith-Schuster's hit on Burfict left the linebacker with a concussion, and he was carted off the field.

Runyan shared similar sentiments in issuing Iloka's suspension.

Official word from on a suspension for Smith-Schuster should come sometime later on Tuesday. If they lose their appeal, they will sit out next week's game. "It should have been (only) a fine, and the other guy should have a suspension". "You do the wrong things, you get the wrong things out of it". "You can't have that happen".

In any case, Burfict should be considered questionable for the Bengals' match against the Chicago Bears on Sunday.

Top draft pick John Ross went on injured reserve Wednesday with a shoulder injury.
