Bengals safety's suspension for hitting Antonio Brown overturned

Updated:

The Bengals safety who was suspended for one game after a helmet-to-helmet hit with Steelers receiver Antonio Brown won his appeal Wednesday and will not be suspended.

George Iloka hit Brown as he was catching a touchdown pass in Monday night’s game, which was marred by several vicious blows and numerous injuries, including Steelers linebacker Ryan Shazier being carted off the field with a spine injury.
