STRONGSIDE linebacker Jamar Chaney confirmed that he has buried the hatchet with Steelers offensive lineman Ramon Foster, who dived into the back of Chaney's legs well after the whistle during last Thursday's game. Foster was not penalized.

"I don't think he did it intentionally," Chaney said today. "It looked like it on film. It is what it is. It won't help me to be mad about it . . . We don't play the Steelers any more unless we make it to the Super Bowl and they make it, too."

Chaney said he and Foster spoke via direct message on Twitter.

"He just told me it wasn't intentional, he wasn't trying to hurt me . . . [that] it wasn't as it looked on film.

"It scared me; I didn't know it was like that until I watched it on film . . . I didn't know it was that far after the whistle."

Chaney was asked if he thought Foster should be fined.

"That's up to the league, but I'm pretty sure if that was a defensive player hitting an offensive player, they would be fined," he said. "Just like [Ndamukong] Suh got fined."
