Ben Roethlisberger defends JuJu Smith-Schuster for hit

The Pittsburgh Steelers heard one anyway.

JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER of the Pittsburgh Steelers and GEORGE ILOKA of the Cincinnati Bengals have been suspended without pay for one game each for violations of safety-related playing rules in Monday's game.

"We don't want any of that stuff", Lewis said Wednesday.

Not according to the Steelers. Following the game, Gronkowski had even admitted that he allowed for his emotions to get the best of him in that moment. "That's not player safety". 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. Iloka hit Brown in the head while trying to break up his game-tying touchdown catch.

"I don't like to compare players and suspensions, things like that".

Joe Thomas sounds off on Roger Goodell's rich new contract
A person familiar with the contract told The Associated Press it is worth nearly $200 million, with a base of $40 million. He was mainly displeased due to the way the league handled the situation of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott .

"That hit appears to check the same boxes Runyan outlined to Smith-Schuster - ".[Y] ou lined up a defender and delivered a violent and unnecessary blindside shot to his head and neck area".

Iloka had his suspension reduced to a hefty fine by appeals officer Derrick Brooks.

Gronkowski took aim at White's head well after the whistle, his left arm slamming face-down into White following White's interception. He argued that the league was inconsistent to give them equal penalties.

"I didn't think it was warranted", said Roethlisberger of Smith-Schuster's one-game ban.

"It wasn't away from the ball". You then "celebrated" the play by standing over him and taunting him. The league will decide whether to fine Shaw for running into Boswell, or to accept that it was just an ordinary case of a player jumping offside. "You look at what Gronk did and what JuJu did, they got the same suspension". It's a reviewable play to improve the accuracy of the call, but it's still polarizing among fans.
