JuJu Smith-Schuster and George Iloka both suspended for one game

Share

On Monday Night Football, JuJu Smith-Schuster delivered a devastating blow to Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict and then proceeded to stand over him and taunt him. Despite the vast differences between the plays, both players received one-game suspensions.

Iloka will miss Cincinnati's game against the Bears, while Smith-Schuster will sit out an important game against the Ravens.

The NFL's letter to Schuster-Smith informing him of the suspension said the egregious hit and the taunting "fell far below the high standards of sportsmanship expected of an NFL player".

Smith-Schuster apologized for the hit during post-game interviews as well as on Twitter.

Official word from on a suspension for Smith-Schuster should come sometime later on Tuesday. "The ball tipped off his hands and he kind of put his head towards my area, and I tried to fade off of him at the last second, but he initially tried to make contact because he knew he could get the flag", Burfict told ESPN.

Ioka was suspended for a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown in the end zone during the fourth quarter, when Brown was deemed to be a defenseless receiver.

"I was just playing to the whistle", Smith-Schuster said.

Brown had pretty clearly already caught the pass, and hitting him in the head was definitely unnecessary.

On Tuesday, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he took more issue with the taunting than the hit. I was trying to get a big block for Le'Veon Bell for him to get upfield.

Burfict was carted off the field and immediately ruled out of the game.

The early severe back injury to Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier cast a cloud over the rest of the game Monday night, but with 239 yards in penalties between the two teams there was plenty of physical play to go around. Love you 50, Get better soon! "We want to play within the rules; we respect player safety", said Tomlin.

Here's the latest updates on both situations and some advice on what to do if you own either of these players.
