Smith-Schuster, Iloka suspended one game each

Smith-Schuster, Iloka suspended one game each

Smith-Schuster was suspended for Monday night's vicious fourth-quarter block on Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who was in a defenseless posture, according to the NFL's ruling.

Gronkowski delivered a late hit on Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White while he was down following an interception, and then on Monday night Smith-Schuster laid out Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict with a peel-back block and then stood over him after the hit.

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

Seeing an opportunity to take a free shot at Burfict, Smith-Schuster stuck his helmet into Burfict's jaw on a block.

Skirball Fire Map: Current Location of the Wildfire
The Skirball Fire is in mostly residential areas causing evacuation, and UCLA students were given the option to go to class. The fire burned more than 11,000 acres by Wednesday morning and had destroyed an estimated 30 homes, KTVU-TV reported.

Since Burfict is one ot the NFL's must suspended and fined players - considered an outlaw everywhere except Cincinnati, the irony of him being flattened by an illegal hit was not lost on fans far and wide. "I apologize for that and with that being said, I hope he gets better".

"I didn't know it was Burfict at first", the rookie said.

Burfict's actions after the hit upset Pittsburgh coach Mike Tomlin.

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

There's a limited edition OnePlus 5T for Star Wars: The Last Jedi
On the other hand, the company argues that the OnePlus 5T Star Wars edition will have the same specs as its original version. During the special one-hour preview sale on Amazon last month, the company said the OnePlus 5T sold out within five minutes.

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". Burfict is one of the NFL's villains, an oft-punished player due to dirty hits. Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger dumped the ball off to his check-down option on the play in LeVeon Bell, who managed to run past the first down marker. Then afterward he leered over him, taunting him.

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. I thought what happened, the play that happened, happened in the context of a football play. He was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and taunting. "I hope he's OK and I hope he gets better".

As he did so, Pro Bowl Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown yelled the word "Karma" over and over in the background.
