The NFL acted swiftly in regards to the Myles Garrett – Mason Rudolph brawl that occurred late in the Browns – Steelers matchup on Thursday night.
Both organizations were fined a quarter of a million dollars while Garrett has been ‘suspended without pay indefinitely – at a minimum for the remainder of the regular season and postseason – and must meet with the commissioner’s office prior to a decision on his reinstatement.’
Maurkice Pouncey, who jumped on Garrett after he hit Rudolph with the helmet, has been ‘suspended without pay for three games and fined an additional amount for fighting.’ Larry Ogunjobi of Cleveland has been suspended without pay for one game.
The release from the NFL does not mention any sort of discipline has been handed out to Rudolph at this moment, but it does say ‘additional discipline for other players will be forthcoming through the standard accountability process, including those players that left the bench to enter the fight area.’
The debates about the brawl have been fiery ever since the incident last night and there’s no sign of things slowing down any time soon.
In a video replay, it’s clear that Rudolph’s foot did come in contact with Garrett’s groin before the defensive end ripped off the quarterback’s helmet and swung at him.
It certainly doesn’t sound like the handing out of suspensions or fines is over just yet.
