PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The Pittsburgh Steelers will not lose a draft pick as a result of Mike Tomlin interfering with a play this season.

According to a press release from the team, Steelers President Art Rooney II said the NFL will not make the team forfeit a pick in this year’s NFL Draft.

The incident in question happened during the team’s Thanksgiving night game in Baltimore.

Tomlin was previously fined $100,000 by the NFL for venturing onto the field as Jacoby Jones returned a kick up the sidelines.

The Steelers lost the game 22-20.
