Steelers kicker believes Bengals were intentionally trying to injure him

Smith-Schuster was suspended for Monday night's vicious fourth-quarter block on Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, who was in a defenseless posture, according to the NFL's ruling. 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.

"I think so", McVay said of whether targeting would work in the NFL.

Burfict was carted off the field, and he gave the thumbs up as he left to the locker room.




He went on a rant Wednesday, blasting the National Football League for upholding JuJu Smith-Schuster's suspension. It wasn't a hit on a kicker, a defenseless player. He was declared out for the rest of the game with a head injury.

That's the right call, as his action was more like the commonly fined hits we've seen over the course of the year, and less like premeditated acts like Rob Gronkowski's elbow smash. The unsportsmanlike conduct is not me. On Smith-Schuster's play he was making a block, albeit a somewhat unnecessary one, during a play, while Gronkowski's hit came after the whistle had been blown. Gronkowski's hit was a player safety issue, while Smith-Schuster's play was a sportsmanship violation. "I don't (but) you look at what Gronk did and what JuJu did and got the same suspension, I don't know if that's necessarily fair but that's above my pay grade". "While we still believe George did nothing wrong on the play and the helmet-to-helmet contact was a result of Antonio Brown's lowering his head as he braced for contact, we felt and argued that a suspension was particularly egregious".

"You are suspended for the risky and unsportsmanlike acts you committed during the fourth quarter of last night's game". But intent is key here: We can't say for sure that Shaw was trying to injure Boswell.
