As if you needed any reminder that the Bengals – Steelers rivalry has gotten out of hand, another shot has been taken.
When the two AFC North rivals faced off in Week 13, a host of players went down with significant injuries, including Bengals running back Joe Mixon. The rookie running back suffered a concussion late in the second quarter, which forced him to miss the rest of the game, as well as the Week 14 loss to the Bears.
Concussions are a very sensitive subject in all sports, but don’t tell that to Vince Williams. The Steelers’ starting linebacker actually made fun of Mixon’s concussion on Twitter, then joked that Le’Veon Bell (a.k.a. Juice) would have dodged the hit:
Juice would have been able to dodge that hit too….
