PITTSBURGH (AP) — New video shows Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin took a step toward the playing field even as Baltimore kickoff returner Jacoby Jones was streaking down the sideline during last Thursday’s 22-20 win.
KDKA-TV in Pittsburgh released video Monday indicating Tomlin moved closer to the field while Jones was in the midst of a long return. Tomlin jumped out of the way at the last second, but not before Jones moved to his right just before being tackled by Pittsburgh’s Cortez Allen.
Tomlin was not penalized on the play, but the NFL is looking into the incident. Tomlin said following the game he lost his “placement” on the field and was wrong. Steelers safety Ryan Clark said Monday that Tomlin’s lurking was unintentional.
