Appeals officer James Thrash, jointly appointed by the NFL and the NFL Players Association, has upheld the one-game suspension of Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster. The appeal was heard on Tuesday afternoon.

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. Smith-Schuster then stood over Burfict as he lay motionless.
