Mike Tomlin 'TripGate' ruling coming later this week
A ruling on Mike Tomlin's "TripGate" incident will come later this week and everything is still on the table.
Mike Tomlin's under fire for his alleged attempted tripping of Jacoby Jones during the Steelers-Ravens Thanksgiving night game. And it was believed that a ruling might come from the NFL on Monday but CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports that's not the case.
Instead, the league is still reviewing the matter and is expected to make a ruling early this week.
A heavy fine is still expected for Tomlin and the Steelers. La Canfora reports the Steelers are still worried they could be stripped of a pick and that while a suspension is not in play for Tomlin, everything else is still on the table.
New video emerged on Monday that appears to show Tomlin taking a step toward the field during the return. It's not a great look. The coaches' film isn't yet available on Game Rewind, but you can bet that the NFL has already gotten a look at it, or is looking at it during the review.
A review of the game film shows that in an on-field interview before the game, Tomlin dropped a little irony.
"Obviously, the kicking game is going to be big," Tomlin said.
If he only knew just how big it would be.
