Insider Only NFL reviewing Ngata’s hit on Ben: Steelers to work out two punters

More fines coming for Ravens?

An NFL spokesman confirmed to Inside Pittsburgh via email when reached for comment this evening that the league is reviewing Haloti Ngata’s hit on Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger that broke Roethlisberger’s nose.
The spokesman gave no insight on whether a fine will be given but the league is expected to announce on Tuesday if there will be any disciplinary action against Ngata’s.
Ngata’s blow to Roethlisberger’s might have been accidental but any blow to a quarterbacks head is deemed at least a penalty or a fine able offense.
Just like the McClain hit on Miller, there was no penalty on the play.
The Steelers expect to officially bring a new punter on board tomorrow afternoon as Daniel Sepulveda will be placed injured reserve.
The Steelers will work out Ricky Schmitt and former penn state kicker Jeremy Kapinos who punted in one game for the Indianapolis Colts this season, averaging 44.5 yards on four kicks.
Earlier today the Steelers were said to likely sign Schmitt but I’d look for Kapino’s to win tomorrow’s competition.
Kapinos was the Green Bay Packers primary punter last season, averaging 43.8 yards per kick.
