Browns’ Garrett suspension upheld; miss rest of 2019
By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher
Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett had his suspension upheld on Thursday. This means, his original suspension will be honored by the league.
Following the brawl that he was involved in one week ago, he was suspended indefinitely on Nov. 15. Garrett weren’t bunkers after Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph attempted to take his helmet off.
Garrett alleges that Rudolph used a racial slur, but the quarter back’s attorney says it never happened. After Rudolph tried to pull Garrett’s helmet off of his head, Garrett pulled Rudolph’s helmet off of his head, then hit the signal-caller with it.
The former No. 1 overall pick was one of three players — and one of two Browns players — who were suspended from the incident. Maurkice Pouncey has his three game suspension changed to a two-game suspension.
Now, as a result of Garrett’s suspension ending upheld, he will miss the rest of the 2019 season. It is the longest suspension in recent NFL history.
He will have to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell before he is allowed to play on the field again.
