Cleveland Browns

Myles Garrett suspended the rest of the year, but nothing for QB Mason Rudolph?

Myles Garrett has been suspended indefinitely according to the NFL. The Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi has been suspended for one game and Steelers offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey has been suspended for three games.

The crazy thing is Mason Rudolph who did instigate did not get a suspension at all.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns organizations have each been fined $250,000 and three players – Cleveland’s MYLES GARRETT and LARRY OGUNJOBI, and Pittsburgh’s MAURKICE POUNCEY – have been suspended without pay for their actions in Thursday night’s game.

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.  He was also fined an additional amount.  Garrett violated unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct rules, as well as fighting, removing the helmet of an opponent and using the helmet as a weapon.

Pouncey has been suspended without pay for three games and fined an additional amount for fighting, including punching and kicking an opponent.

Ogunjobi has been suspended without pay for one game and fined an additional amount for unnecessary roughness, specifically for shoving an opposing player to the ground during an altercation.

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.
