Bengals Iloka has 1-game suspension overturned, fans react

Bengals safety George Iloka had his one-game suspension overturned on appeal Wednesday, leaving him with a $36,464.50 fine for his hit to Antonio Brown’s head on Monday night.

Iloka and Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster each got a one-game suspension from the NFL in the aftermath of Pittsburgh’s 23-20 win at Paul Brown Stadium. Iloka hit Brown in the head while trying to break up his game-tying touchdown catch.

Smith-Schuster laid out Vontaze Burfict with a devastating hit as a way to prevent him from tackling Le’Veon Bell. While Burfict was laying on the field, Smith-Schuster stood over him in what has been described as in a taunting manner.

He did apologize following the game, saying he was wrong for standing over Burfict.

Smith-Schuster’s suspension has not been overturned and fans are voicing their outrage.

The Steelers will play the Baltimore Ravens Sunday night at Heinz Field.
