Money collected for violations included in the schedule of fines are designated for programs for former players. Unfortunately, that wouldn't be the only scary injury to take place in the Steelers-Bengals game.
Chiefs suspend cornerback Marcus Peters for Raiders game
Peters earned his coach's ire last season after punting a football into the stands on two separate occasions. Reid made the announcement in a news conference Wednesday. "He'll be back the following week".
"We are grateful to appeals officer Derrick Brooks for reducing George's penalty from a one-game suspension to a fine equivalent to what players who were recently involved in similar plays received". He went on a rant Wednesday, blasting the National Football League for upholding JuJu Smith-Schuster's suspension. Some players like the big hits but hate the way they're penalized, while others know the dangers and risks of head injuries. 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. I thought what happened happened in the context of a football play.
Smith-Schuster was flagged for unnecessary roughness and taunting after his blindside hit on Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in the fourth quarter of Pittsburgh's 23-20 victory Monday night.
Hue Jackson comments on Browns after exit of Sashi Brown
If he also fails to find a quarterback, he'll meet a similar fate to Brown - and one head coach Hue Jackson could be facing soon. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam on December 7 fired Sashi Brown as executive vice president of football operations.
"We've been very consistent", executive vice president of operations Troy Vincent said during a conference call Wednesday. Smith-Schuster's suspension, however, was upheld and he will sit out Week 14 along with Gronk.
"Obviously, we don't like the taunting, standing over him, things like that", he said. "I don't know that that's necessarily fair". I don't think anybody wants that, coach (Mike) Tomlin or myself or any of the clubs.
First death of Florida flu season confirmed
It is impossible to contract a case of flu from the vaccine. "And there are a lot of H1N1 and B viruses out there", Brammer said. There are also concerns that this year's flu shot may not be all that effective in preventing the respiratory illness.
Meanwhile, Gronkowski had clearer intentions with his actions that were made well after the play was over. "That's not the look we want in the National Football League".
