JuJu Smith-Schuster gets one-game suspension

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown catches a touchdown pass against Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick center in the second half of an NFL football game Monday Dec. 4 2017 in Cincinnati

JuJu Smith-Schuster channeled Hines Ward with a huge block that left Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict with a head injury.

Smith-Schuster was disciplined for his high block on Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the Steelers' comeback victory Monday night.

Jon Runyan, the NFL vice president of football operations, wrote in a letter to Smith-Schuster that he violated a rule that prohibits unnecessary contact with a player who is in a defenseless posture.

Smith-Schuster then stood over Burfict as he lay motionless.

Smith-Schuster added extra attention to the play by standing over an injured Burfict, who has a history of concussions as well as unsafe hits and actions that have drawn the ire of the league office. "We want to play within the rules; we respect player safety", said Steelers coach Mike Tomlin after the game.

The rookie apologized for his actions after the game, saying according to ESPN: "I didn't know it was Burfict at first".

"He shouldn't have stood over him". "Your conduct following the hit fell fair below the high standards of sportsmanship expected from an National Football League player". "I can assess a judgment on the fact that he stood over him and that's not how we play and that's not reflective of the sportsman he is".

In a letter to Smith-Schuster, NFL Vice President of Football Operations Jon Runyan wrote: "You are suspended for the risky and unsportsmanlike acts you committed during the fourth quarter of last night's game".

The Steelers will now prepare to play against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 14, while the Bengals will get ready for their game against the Chicago Bears.

He did say he didn't single out Burfict, Public Enemy No. 1 in Pittsburgh, in retaliation for past hits on Brown and RB Le'Veon Bell, ripping up Bell's knee late in the 2015 season.

"I didn't think it was warranted", Roethlisberger said. "Praying he gets better". The unsportsmanlike conduct is not me.

Smith-Schuster, at least, will appeal.
