Antonio Brown spoke of

JuJu Smith-Schuster deserved to get tossed from Monday night's game against the Cincinnati Bengals for his vicious, dirty hit on Vontaze Burfict (watch here).

According to the NFL's statement, VP of Football Operations Jon Runyan suspended Smith-Schuster for unnecessary contact against a player in a defenseless posture (Rule 12, Section 2, Article 7) and for unsportsmanlike conduct (Rule 12, Section 3, Article 1). Brown held on for the tying touchdown and neither player was ejected. Iloka's was heard by Derrick Brooks.

Smith-Schuster will miss the Steelers' home game against Baltimore on Sunday night.

The NFL on Wednesday announced that the one-game suspension given to Cincinnati Bengals safety George Iloka for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been reduced to a $35,464.50 fine. "We already play a high-injury sport", said, via NFL.com.

Runyan shared similar sentiments in issuing Iloka's suspension.

"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 ...

"I didn't think it was warranted", Roethlisberger said. He's got to work hard so people understand the type of man he is from a sportsmanship standpoint and that's not something that's going to happen overnight.

Smith-Schuster told reporters he "messed up" with the taunting, because he cost his team 15 yards. "That's just the reality of plays like that". "Obviously, we don't like the taunting, the standing over him, things like that". "I was trying to get a big block for Le'Veon Bell for him to get upfield", Smith-Schuster said. I shouldn't have done that. I don't know. It's flawed, that's the best way I can put it.

He also apologized in a postgame tweet. Brown was a game-time decision.

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