By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - Pittsburgh Steelers OL Trai Turner reportedly won't be suspended after he was thrown out for spitting on a Raiders player during Sunday's loss.

Officials threw out Turner in the middle of the fourth quarter after the tape showed him spitting on another player from the Raiders. According to Tom Pelissero, he won't be suspended.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports Coach Mike Tomlin said the Raiders started it and says Turner spit in the direction of linebacker Marquel Lee because Turner was spit on first.
