Steelers WR George Pickens Ejected From Bengals Game

The Pittsburgh Steelers rookie was involved in a large altercation late in the game.

PITTSBURGH -- As the Pittsburgh Steelers watched the clock wind down to zero on their seventh loss of the season, wide receiver George Pickens left early. 

The rookie wide receiver was disqualified after an altercation during an onside kick was a little over 40 seconds left in the ball game. After a frustrating second half, Pickens was involved in a scuffle that included most of both teams on the field, but the rookie was a little more flagrant than the rest of the crowd. 

Pickens was disqualified for his personal foul on the tackle of the onside kick. He appears to target the head and lean his helmet down on the play.

The rookie didn't get to finish his second-best game of the season, catching four passes for 83 yards and a touchdown.
