Vontaze Burfict 'livid' after nasty blindside block from Juju Smith-Schuster

Now it looks like he'll be slapped with the same one-game ban that the National Football League hit Rob Gronkowski with on Monday for his dirty hit on Tre'Davious White. The rookie wideout then stood over Burfict, with Smith-Schuster later admitting that he "messed up" by taunting the fallen linebacker since it cost his team 15 yards.

George Iloka had his suspension reduced, JuJu Smith-Schuster didn't and the Steelers weren't happy with either development Wednesday. He'll sit out when the AFC North-leading Steelers (10-2) host second-place Baltimore (7-5) on Sunday night. The unsportsmanlike conduct is not me.

Asked if that comment was related to Burfict, Brown said, "I ain't talking about nobody". Burfict's teammates obviously didn't like that one bit, and the game officials flagged him for taunting and unnecessary roughness.

"You don't think Goodell doesn't know about what is going on?"

Burfict has been at the center of the nastiness. "Because the Steelers play the Patriots the next week". He kicked running back Roosevelt Nix during the game, drawing a $12,154 fine from the league. Burfict left the game on a stretcher and did not return.

House votes to kill resolution to impeach Trump
Pelosi and Hoyer released a joint statement ahead of a floor vote on articles of impeachment sponsored by Rep. Steny Hoyer , the second-ranking Democrat in the House, are both expected to vote to table the motion.

On Tuesday, Tomlin told reporters that Smith-Schuster's decision to taunt Burfict was worse than the hit itself.

Runyan shared similar sentiments in issuing Iloka's suspension.

Smith-Schuster, who is not permitted inside the Steelers facility until he serves his suspension, will miss a game check worth $25,744. I don't think he targeted where he ended up hitting him. "It should have been (only) a fine, and the other guy should have a suspension".

Iloka's agent, Ron Slavin, released a statement saying thank you to Brooks but reiterated that they felt Iloka did nothing wrong.

Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? "You can't have that happen". Eli Rogers will come on in three-receiver sets. He had one carry that ended in a fumble, and didn't catch a pass.
