Burfict would eventually have to be immobilized and carted off the field and the illegal hit seems that much more classless given that Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier appears to have suffered a very serious back injury earlier in the game where he lost movement in his legs.
Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown turned heads after his team's 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Monday when he offered to pay teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster's potential fine following a vicious hit. On Monday, Smith-Schuster was the one in the wrong.
