Antonio Brown Yells 'Karma' and 'I Liked That' Regarding Vontaze Burficit Injury

The hit was bad enough, but then Smith-Schuster proceeded to step over a clearly injured Burfict and taunt him.

Smith-Schuster targeted Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict with a vicious helmet-to-helmet block that left the Bengals star on the ground and later in the hospital.

Asked if that comment was related to Burfict, Brown said, "I ain't talking about nobody".

"I like that. I like that", Brown said.

Smith-Schuster got two penalties on the play, one for the hit (which came against a defenseless player) and another for taunting.

Burfict was carted off the field while immobilized and evaluated for a head injury, though he eventually wound up walking into the locker room under his own power.

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

In fact, Burfict doesn't even believe Brown was genuinely hurt.

Burfict was suspended for the first three games of the 2016 season. He's also been accused of dirty plays against Ravens tight end Maxx Williams, former Patriots tight end Martellus Bennett, former Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount, and Bell.

If Brown did fake his reaction to the hit (he didn't) he (a) is a fantastic actor and (b) was really committed to the act, because he missed the AFC Championship game the following week as a result of the hit. Earlier this season, he kicked at Steelers fullback Roosevelt Nix's head, but he avoided a suspension. However, JuJu was involved in one of several dirty plays Monday night. It can't be used as a way to justify that block.
