When pressed on if he was referring specifically to Burfict leaving with a head injury when he spoke of "karma", Brown said he wasn't talking about any one person.
Earlier in Monday night's game, Ryan Shazier was carted off with what seemed to be a back injury. It's an unfortunate reality that was on display during this week's Monday Night Football matchup.
To make matters worse, the Bengals nearly immediately responded with a helmet-to-helmet shot on Steelers superstar Antonio Brown as he caught a touchdown pass to tie the game later in that drive. On Monday, Smith-Schuster was the one in the wrong. Smith-Schuster told reporters he "messed up" with the taunting because he cost his team 15 yards. Obviously there's going to be a massive fine here for Smith-Schuster and possibly a suspension.
"Karma is karma. Karma is in life".
According to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN, "As JuJu Smith-Schuster talked about his block on Vontaze Burfict, Antonio Brown kept yelling "Karma" in Smith-Schuster's direction".
Bell, who drew an unnecessary roughness penalty for tangling with then shoving away Burfict on the sixth play of the game from scrimmage, said the opposing linebacker would be in his prayers. "I hope he's OK and I hope he gets better".
Brown also said, "I liked that, I liked that", when discussing the block, per Chris Adamski of the Tribune-Review. "And just the way he went down, it was just like - I don't know man".
