Steelers kicker believes Bengals were intentionally trying to injure him

SMITH-SCHUSTER AND ILOKA SUSPENDED AFTER FIERY MNF CLASH Bill Belichick: 'Nobody wants to see' violence from Steelers vs. Bengals

Iloka and Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster each got a one-game suspension from the National Football League in the aftermath of Pittsburgh's 23-20 win at Paul Brown Stadium.

There's not a set rule for what gets a player suspended.

Though both players ended up with the same punishment, the Steelers quarterback told reporters on Wednesday that Gronkowski's forearm to the back of the head of the Bills' Tre'Davious White after the whistle was far worse than Smith-Schuster's helmet-to-helmet hit on the Bengals' Vontaze Burfict during the play.

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 look at what Gronk did and what JuJu did, they got the same suspension".

After the game, Steelers receiver Antonio Brown said Schuster's hit on Burfict was "karma", likely referring Burfict head-shot to Brown in last season's playoffs. 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 unsafe plays. It's a reviewable play to improve the accuracy of the call, but it's still polarizing among fans. What I think everything is geared towards is just being mindful of in a physical game you want to try to provide the players with as much safety as possible, knowing that there is a physical element to this game.

"There should be a committee of people (discipline) that discuss it as opposed to one guy", Foster said.

According to the National Football League operations department's web site: "Players subject to discipline receive a letter informing them of what they did, a video of the play in question, why they are being fined and how much it will cost them. If they choose not to appeal, the fine is withheld from their next game check". Steelers safety Mike Mitchell was the latest to make this point.

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.
