• 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.
