It looks like we have two spitters.
After Steelers running back Najee Harris scored a touchdown, both players were flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Turner was also ejected from the game as footage showed him spitting on Thomas.
You would think Mike Tomlin would be heated at his player, but he explained after the game that his player was spit on.
“Somebody spit in his face,” Tomlin said. “So I understand the 15-yard penalties and so forth, gaining control of the game and stuff, I just — Trai is not a young guy. He’s not overly emotional. He’s a flat-liner. For him to respond the way that he responded, what transpired had to transpire. I was stating that case to them. I didn’t believe he did enough to be kicked out of the football game. That was just my opinion.”
Turner, who was not made available to the media after the game, took to Twitter to thank his head coach for his support.
