The Quick Facts

  • Toward the end of a Thursday night NFL game last week, a fight broke out between players from the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers. The fight started when Browns defensive end Myles Garrett ripped the helmet off Steelers' quarterback Mason Rudolph and hit him on the head with it. 
  • The next day, the NFL announced that Garrett would be suspended indefinitely for the incident, at a minimum for the remainder of the regular season and postseason.
  • Garrett issued a statement of apology on Friday after his suspension was announced, saying: “Last night, I made a terrible mistake. I lost my cool and what I did was selfish and unacceptable.”
  • Garrett is appealing his indefinite suspension, asking for a reduced penalty. His appeal will be heard Wednesday by two appeals officers jointly appointed by the NFL and the NFL Players Association.

This was uglier than a brawl. And Myles Garrett deserves suspension for rest of year after helmet attack.
