Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who banned all table games from the locker room last week, has now banned his players from flipping into the end zone.
According to Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Tomlin told his player to stop celebrating touchdowns the way Emmanuel Sanders did Sunday against the New York Jets – doing a somersault-into-the-end-zone and landing on his back.
“There will be no more somersault-into-the-end-zone celebrations,” Tomlin said, via Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest. “There is the potential for injury. That simple.”
Rookie running back Le’Veon Bell did a front flip across the goal line when he scored his first NFL touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings in London.
