Iloka was suspended one game for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers WR Antonio Brown during Monday night’s loss.
Iloka elected to appeal the ban and it appears as though the league agreed that it wasn’t worthy of a suspension.
Iloka, 27, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2012. He’s currently in the second year of his five-year, $30 million contract that includes $5 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $5.2 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, Iloka has appeared in 12 games and recorded 59 tackles, one interception, and four pass defenses.
