Steelers K Chris Boswell says Bengals tried to hurt him

Steelers K Chris Boswell says Bengals tried to hurt him

Iloka's agent Ron Slavin said they felt a suspension was unnecessary for Iloka, who was flagged for unnecessary roughness on Monday night after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown that occurred in the end zone.

Roethlisberger did go on to say that he did not approve of the wideout standing over Burfict as the linebacker lay on the ground after the hit.

Burfict was carted off the field, and he gave the thumbs up as he left to the locker room.

Both Smith-Schuster and Gronkowski received one-game suspensions, but there has been much discussion as to whether the two plays were comparable.

As far as Boswell is concerned, a player would never jump that far offsides unless he is trying to injure the kicker. He was evaluated for a head injury. The unsportsmanlike conduct is not me.

Smith-Schuster wasn't ejected for his hit on Burfict, but just as we saw earlier this week with Rob Gronkowski, a suspension wouldn't be out of the realm of possibilities. Gronkowski was suspended one game for hitting Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White with a elbow to the neck after the play was whistled dead and the defender was down and out of bounds.

"I don't like to compare players and suspensions, things like that, but you look at what Gronk did and what Juju did, they got the same suspension", Roethlisberger told reporters Wednesday. "I don't know that that's necessarily fair".

Under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the suspensions may be appealed within three business days.

There's not a set rule for what gets a player suspended. "So, going forward, you know how to avoid it".

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.

So much so, that one unsafe play at the end of the game was hardly even noticed until Steelers kicker Chris Boswell brought it up.
