Bill Belichick: 'Nobody wants to see' violence from Steelers vs. Bengals

Ben Roethlisberger

JUJU SMITH-SCHUSTER of the Pittsburgh Steelers and GEORGE ILOKA of the Cincinnati Bengals have been suspended without pay for one game each for violations of safety-related playing rules in Monday's game. Both JuJu Smith-Schuster and George Iloka were suspended for their helmet-to-helmet shots - though Iloka's was overturned - which spurred some to ponder what can be done about these risky plays.

The Bengals (5-7) host the Bears (3-9) on Sunday.

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.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger doesn't think Smith-Schuster should have received the same suspension as Gronkowski.

So much so, that one risky play at the end of the game was hardly even noticed until Steelers kicker Chris Boswell brought it up. "I thought a fine, a pretty steep fine, something like that".

Cleveland Browns fire VP Sashi Brown
The Cleveland Browns fired top executive Sashi Brown , but are keeping coach Hue Jackson for another season despite a 1-27 record. The Browns then moved out of the No. 12 spot in the 2017 draft, allowing the Houston Texans to select Deshaun Watson .

"We've been very consistent", executive vice president of operations Troy Vincent said during a conference call Wednesday.

Both players were hit with suspensions on Tuesday and immediately appealed. It wasn't away from the ball, wasn't a hit on a kicker, a defenseless player, it was a guy getting ready to make a tackle, a much bigger football player. I thought what happened happened in the context of a football play. Smith-Schuster's suspension, however, was upheld and he will sit out Week 14 along with Gronk.

While Lewis wasn't asked about Smith-Schuster's suspension, he said there is no place in the league for his actions after the hit while also referencing Pittsburgh running back Le'Veon Bell's unnecessary roughness penalty against Burfict on the sixth play of the game. "You want to try to avoid those and if that's something that's going to be intentional about helping to provide a little bit more safety and protection for our players, then we're always about that".

"So I don't think anybody wants that, Coach Tomlin or myself or the clubs".
