Bengals safety George Iloka's one-game suspension reduced to fine

ESPNAPI_IMG_NO_ALTEXT_Value

Roethlisberger told reporters he thought the suspension for Smith-Schuster was overly harsh, considering Smith-Schuster's hit on Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict came on a bang-bang play in the course of a typical football situation.

Iloka was suspended for a hit to Antonio Brown's head in the end zone after the star wideout caught a game-tying touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

Smith-Schuster has quickly become a fan favorite as a rookie with the AFC North-leading Steelers, but he will be absent for a division showdown with the second-place Ravens this coming weekend. "Obviously, we don't like the taunting, the standing over him, things like that".

But a quick scroll through Twitter on Tuesday revealed a common theme: Many current and former National Football League players thought Gronkowski's hit was worse than Smith-Schuster's.

The SIM-free model Apple is selling is expected to be the Qualcomm version, as that one supports all four U.S. carriers. Apple had troubles delivering the new iPhone X after its launch on November 3.

Ben Roethlisberger does not think it's fair Steelers wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster was punished the same as Rob Gronkowski for their hits over the weekend. He even offered to pay Smith-Schuster's fine.

It was a busy week for suspensions in the NFL. Specifically, with 7:10 remaining, on a passing play to a running back, you lined up a defender and delivered a violent and unnecessary blindside shot to his head and neck area. The money goes to programs for former players, according to the NFL. Smith-Schuster will return for a critical, and potentially high-scoring, game with the Patriots in Week 15. Perhaps it's a desperate attempt by the league to prevent further incidents from happening. White was sent to the concussion protocol after being sandwiched to the ground by Gronkowski, and Burfict was immobilized before being carried to the locker room after being dropped by Smith-Schuster. They could serve as examples for the rest of the league.

That would essentially revert to the old precedent when consistency was nonexistent.
