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

Gronkowski was also suspended one game for intentionally falling down on top of Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White and striking him in the back of the head.

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.

Minutes later, Iloka launched head-first at Brown as Brown hauled in the game-tying touchdown, drawing an unnecessary roughness penalty.

The hit was exacerbated by Smith-Schuster standing over the concussed Burfict and taunting him before the Bengals linebacker was strapped to a backboard and driven off the field on a cart. "I thought maybe a fine, pretty step fine, something like that", said Roethlisberger.

Instagram acts to stop animal cruelty
Similar alerts are already set up for many hashtags in dozens of languages related to suicide, self-harm, and eating disorders. Instagram isn't saying which terms will trigger the flags, though, as it wants users to discover them on their own.

The Bengals (5-7) host the Bears (3-9) on Sunday. "I don't think either side wants to have any of that, the unnecessary roughing that occurred early in the game". Burfict is in concussion protocol and missed practice on Wednesday.

"I didn't think [the Smuth-Schuster suspension] was warranted. Your conduct following the hit fell far below the high standards of sportsmanship expected of an National Football League player". The block that Smith-Schuster executed is now an illegal maneuver due to the league's greater concerns with the player safety over the last several years.

Both players were hit with suspensions on Tuesday and immediately appealed. "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 we understand that and I think both of us made that clear to the players. "There's no way I see two people get post-play penalties, post-play infractions that don't have anything to do with football and you get the same suspension as a guy that is making a football play in a football game".
