National Football League strongly considering one-game suspension for JuJu Smith-Schuster

"All I saw was the first Bengal was going to tackle. and my instinct is I gotta block for my teammate", Smith-Schuster said.

Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster and Bengals safety George Iloka have been suspended one game for unsafe blows to the head in Monday night's game, the National Football League announced Tuesday.

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. Burfict was taken from the field on a stretcher and diagnosed with a concussion.

Ioka was suspended for a hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown in the end zone in the fourth quarter when Brown was deemed to be a defenseless receiver.

If he loses the appeal, the Steelers will face the Ravens without a receiver who has caught 37 balls for 585 yards and five touchdowns this season.

Smith-Schuster told reporters he "messed up" with the taunting, because he cost his team 15 yards.

"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 mean to stand over him".

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". After I seen the replay I think I should've held back a little bit more from blocking him.
