Ben Roethlisberger defends JuJu Smith-Schuster for hit

Burfict left the game on a stretcher and did not return.

Pittsburgh Steelers rookie wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster had his one-game suspension for a blindside hit upheld by the NFL.

Minutes later, Iloka launched head-first at Brown as Brown hauled in the game-tying touchdown, drawing an unnecessary roughness penalty.

Roethlisberger feels that what Gronkowski did was more severe.

Authorities said the gun Garcia Zarate used was stolen from the vehicle of an off-duty agent for the Bureau of Land Management. Shockingly, the jury was not told that Zarate was a 7-time convicted felon when deciding his verdict .

"Especially in a game like that", said Berry, "your [thought] is, 'Maybe [Shaw] is trying to do something insane.'He was moving before I even turned around early - so he was definitely trying to jump something".

"We've been very consistent", executive vice president of operations Troy Vincent said during a conference call Wednesday. The block that Smith-Schuster executed is now an illegal maneuver due to the league's greater concerns with the player safety over the last several years.

"We are grateful to appeals officer Derrick Brooks for reducing George's penalty from a one-game suspension to a fine equivalent to what players who were recently involved in similar plays received".

In wake of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's hit on a defenseless player receiving the same level of punishment, it drove Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger to voice his disgruntlement with the league's ruling on the situation, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. "I thought maybe a fine, a pretty steep fine, something like that".

But he failed in his mission and after the penalty yards were marked off Boswell hit the kick. "It was a guy getting ready to make a tackle, a much bigger football player". "Obviously, we don't like the taunting, the standing over him, things like that". I don't think anybody wants that, coach (Mike) Tomlin or myself or any of the clubs. We look at the moments that have escalated the hatred.
