PITTSBURGH – Steelers guard Trai Turner gets ejected from Pittsburgh’s game against Las Vegas after offsetting penalties in the 4th quarter. Replays of the incident appear to show Turner spitting at a Raiders player, causing the ejection.

Turner’s election comes following quarterback Ben Roethlisberger connecting with running back Najee Harris for a touchdown, which put Pittsburgh within 3 points of the Raiders at the time of the score.
Turner’s ejection put the Steelers offensive line down another man down the stretch of the home opener at Heinz Field. The 28-year-old LSU product is in his first season with Pittsburgh after spending 2020 with the Chargers and the previous 6 season in Carolina.
