The NFL has suspended Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett indefinitely, with a minimum of the remainder of the 2019 regular season and playoffs, according to a report by Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Garrett attacked Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph in the final seconds of the teams’ game on Thursday night after a play. Garrett tackled Rudolph, ripped his helmet off his head and then hit him over the head with it.
Cleveland has at least six games remaining in the 2019 season, which would make Garrett’s the longest in NFL history for a single, on-field incident. All NFL suspensions are subject to appeal within three business days.
Garrett’s suspension will be without pay with an additional fine and he must meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in order to be reinstated.
