Mike Tomlin "Expects" NFL To Discipline Steelers LB Terence Garvin For Hit On Huber

Jason Bridge-USA TODAY Sports

At his weekly press conference, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin addressed the possibility of league discipline on Pittsburgh linebacker, Terence Garvin.

The hit heard 'round the world. When the Steelers imposed their mighty 6-8 will on the Bengals Sunday night, the crew in orange and black left Heinz Field embarrassed and bloodied--literally. Midway through a disastrous first quarter, Bengals punter Kevin Huber dropped back to punt the ball to a waiting Antonio Brown. As Brown broke loose for a huge return, Huber got rocked by Pittsburgh backup linebacker, Terence Garvin.

The result was a fractured jaw, a cracked vertebrae in the neck and a trip to Injured Reserve for the rest of the season. You've already heard the take on the hit from some of us at CJ and former head of NFL officiating, Mike Pereira, tweeted that he thought the hit was an illegal one. Though he didn't address the legality of the play, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin believes that Garvin will be punished by the league.

There hasn't been any word as of yet from the league on the play, but given the severity of the injuries sustained by Huber and the fact that the hit itself was questionable, at best, Tomlin's conjecture might not be off-base. Meanwhile, the Bengals are trying out punters to find a good fit for the rest of the year.
