JuJu Smith-Schuster blindsides Vontaze Burfict with vicious block

JuJu Smith Schuster and Vontaze Burfict

He ended up receiving two penalties on the play, one for the hit against a defenseless player, and the other for taunting. The hit happened on a short pass to Le'Veon Bell, and resulted in Burfict leaving the field on a stretcher.

After Bengals receiver A.J. Green was ejected from a game at Jacksonville for wrapping his arm around Jalen Ramsey's neck, taking him down and punching him, Bell and Schuster-Smith had fun at Green's expense in the Steelers' next game at Indianapolis.

According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, "As JuJu Smith-Schuster talked about his block on Vontaze Burfict, Antonio Brown kept yelling "Karma" in Smith-Schuster's direction". He apologized to Burfict on Twitter after the game.

Official word from on a suspension for Smith-Schuster should come sometime later on Tuesday. Also, I believe that that's not me.

Here's the latest updates on both situations and some advice on what to do if you own either of these players. "I hope he's OK and I hope he gets better". The fact that he stood over him.

In his letter to Iloka notifying him of the suspension, Runyan stated that Iloka violated Rule 12, Section 2, Article 7 which prohibits forcibly hitting a defenseless player's head or neck area with the helmet, facemask, forearm or shoulder. They met again in the playoffs that season at Paul Brown Stadium, and Burfict's hit to Brown's head in the closing seconds moved the Steelers in range for a field goal and an 18-16 win.

"Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin wasn't happy with the rookie's actions either, as he said: "[Smith-Schuster] shouldn't have stood over him ...

An interesting reaction, particularly because Brown wouldn't be able to play in the AFC championship game a week later, and because 11 months after the incident, Brown said Burfict had apologized in person. "We want to play within the rules; we respect player safety", said Tomlin.

The Steelers had a 2nd-and-10 with just over seven minutes to go in the last quarter of the game and they were down on the scoreboard against the Bengals 20-13.
