NFL To Hear Garrett's Appeal


Suspended Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett plans to appeal his indefinite suspension at a hearing with James Thrash on Wednesday.

We will stand and for fight Myles, the Browns, and for Cleveland!

Reaction from former National Football League players Chris Valletta, Sean James, and Jack Brewer. Their brawl continued into the end zone and Garrett removed Rudolph's helmet and hit him with it.

While Richardson wants Rudolph to be disciplined, Steelers defensive captain Cam Heyward, who openly lobbied for the league to suspend Garrett on Thursday night, did not offer a response when asked about the league's decision to suspend Garrett for the remainder of the season. As part of his punishment, he's also required to meet with commissioner Roger Goodell's office before he can be reinstated.

Garrett could argue he was provoked, and it's possible he could have his suspension reduced. Both the Steelers-Browns and Raiders-Chiefs games that day will be broadcast by CBS.

Garrett was fined an undisclosed amount and the Steelers and Browns were levied $250,000 penalties.

Garrett was banned indefinitely by the league on Saturday (NZT) for striking Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph with a helmet during the closing seconds of Cleveland's 21-7 victory. Garrett reared back and, using Rudolph's helmet, struck Rudolph atop the unprotected head.

The NFL has yet to announce officially whether Rudolph will be fined.

The only other suspensions given in the brawl were to Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey for kicking and punching Garrett in the helmet and Browns defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi who knocked Rudolph to the ground on the side of the escalated brawl. It's OK, I'll take it.

His teammates are hoping the former No. 1 overall draft pick won't be judged for one moment. "Bad happens in this world and people can take this moment - it could ruin them - people could take this moment, man up for their actions and keep going".
