PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Sources are saying the Steelers will lose a draft pick over the Mike Tomlin sideline controversy.

CBS Sports reports that league sources say the Steelers will lose a late-round draft pick after Tomlin stepped onto the field during the Thanksgiving game against the Baltimore Ravens.

After reviewing footage of the game, the NFL announced it would penalize Tomlin $100,000 for stepping onto the field.

After the ruling, Tomlin apologetic, saying: “As I stated yesterday, I take full responsibility for my actions, and I apologize for causing negative attention to the Pittsburgh Steelers organization. I accept the penalty that I received. I will no longer address this issue as I am preparing for an important game this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.”

Many Steelers fans and teammates have come to Tomlin’s side, saying that they believe his actions were accidental.

When it was announced that Tomlin would have to fork over $100,000 for the incident, the NFL said it would not decide on whether the team would lose a draft pick until the spring.

However, sources tell CBS Sports insider Jason La Canfora that the team will lose the draft pick.
