Steelers WR Smith-Schuster, Bengals S Iloka suspended

JuJu Smith Schuster Annihilated Vontaze Burfict On A Crackback Block

Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Bengals safety George Iloka have each been suspended one game for violations of safety-related playing rules, the National Football League announced on Tuesday.

In addition to Smith-Schuster's suspension, the league also suspended Bengals safety George Iloka one game for his hit on Antonio Brown.

In the end, Burfict was taken off the field on a stretcherboard, thought thankfully he was okay and was actually reportedly "livid" after jumping up off the cart.

When asked if his comments were related to Burfict, Brown said, "I ain't talking about nobody". "Karma is karma. Karma is in life". He's got to work hard so people understand the type of man he is from a sportsmanship standpoint and that's not something that's going to happen overnight.

Smith-Schuster honed in on Burfict as he pursued a tackle, and hit an unsuspecting Burfict in the jaw.

"I was just playing to the whistle", Smith-Schuster said. I should've never stood over him.

Brown repeatedly used the word "karma" in reference to Burfict's injury and said he'd pay any fine given to Smith-Schuster for the incident, according to multiple media reports. The unsportsmanlike conduct is not me. Love you 50, Get better soon! I should've never stood over him. "You coach off the video. That's not reflective of the sportsman he is". JuJu Smith-Schuster channeled Hines Ward with a huge block that left Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict with a head injury. Smith-Schuster, who was flagged for both the hit and for standing over Burfict afterward, showed remorse following the game.

During the wild-card round of the 2016 playoffs, Burfict made himself one of Steelers history's enduring villains when he almost decapitated Antonio Brown. Karma for him too.
