Pittsburgh Steelers defensive tackling Cameron Heyward is likely avoiding suspension and will only receive a fine for his hit on Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert.
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Heyward will not be suspended for what appeared to be a punch to Herbert's stomach. Instead, the NFL will review the play in discussion of a fine.
Heyward apologized after the game saying he didn't mean for it to look like a punch.
"I know it looks worse than it is in slow motion," Heyward said. "I'm sorry if I did anything to offend anybody. I wish I said more to Justin after it but there was nothing behind it."
