  • Vontaze Burfict lies on the ground after JuJu Smith Schuster blocked him with a helmet-to-helmet hit that caused him to be carted off the field.
Antonio Brown spoke of

JuJu Smith-Schuster deserved to get tossed from Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals for his vicious, dirty hit on Vontaze Burfict (watch here).

With 7:10 remaining in Pittsburgh's eventual 23-20 win, Smith-Schuster leveled Burfict as the linebacker pursued Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell on a 12-yard gain, then stood over Burfict as he lay motionless.

Appeals officer James Thrash, jointly appointed by the National Football League and the NFLPA, has upheld the one-game suspension of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. Instead, it was how Smith-Schuster reacted after leveling Burfict when he stood over him and taunted him.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have this year really tried to put together something of a supergroup at wide receiver, but especially lately, it hasn't been easy. 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.

A suspension is the only response the league can rightfully give to what Smith-Schuster did. "Your conduct following the hit fell far below the high standards of sportsmanship expected of an National Football League player".

"I didn't think it was warranted, I thought maybe a fine", Roethlisberger said of Smith-Schuster's discipline. Karma is karma. Karma is in life. I don't know. It's flawed, that's the best way I can put it. "You do the wrong things, you get the wrong things out of it".

"We are grateful to appeals officer Derrick Brooks for reducing George's penalty from a one-game suspension to a fine equivalent to what players who were recently involved in similar plays received", Slavin said in a statement.

"I like that. I like that", said Brown of the block. Brown was a game-time decision.
