Vontaze Burfict Stretchered Off Field After DIRTY Block From JuJu Smith-Schuster (VIDEO)
Vontaze Burfict is usually the one laying out the dirty hits during football games, but on Monday Night Football he was on the receiving end of a nasty block from Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster that forced him to be stretchered off the field.
Smith-Schuster was assessed an unnecessary roughness penalty for the illegal block and a taunting penalty for standing over the injured Burfict after the cheap shot.
Here’s a look at the play:

It’s just the latest dirty play in a long line of them from this AFC North rivalry, and it should earn JuJu a fine and possibly a suspension as well.
The good news is Burfict was conscious and motioned to the crowd as he was carted off the field.
