Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was suspended for at least the rest of the regular season and postseason by the National Football League on Friday for using a helmet "as a weapon" and striking Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head. Meanwhile, Pouncey received the second-highest suspension with that three gamer along with an additional fine. All of the suspensions are without pay. Both teams were fined $250,000 for the incident.
Garrett will miss at least the remainder of the regular season and the postseason if Cleveland manage to qualify.
On the play that began with eight seconds remaining in the game and the Steelers backed up to their own end zone, Rudolph dropped back and was taken to the turf by Garrett.

Garrett will undoubtedly be suspended for his actions.
"Absolutely. That is embarrassing", Garrett said.
"Last night, I made a bad mistake", Garrett said in a statement Friday.

It is immediately unclear whether Garrett, Pouncey or Ogunjobi will appeal their punishments.
Before seeing the replay, Rudolph called Garrett's actions "pretty cowardly" and "Bush League", adding that the pair "had words" and Garrett "kept on keeping on" before tensions peaked. "There is plenty of tape out there to watch".

"That's just endangering the other team". "You have to be able to maintain your composure in times like that".
"I hate what Myles Garrett did because it was soooo unsafe". It is not good. "He understands what he did, he understands it is totally unacceptable, and we have to get through it".
In early reactions to the fight, fans on social media are calling for the most extreme discipline for Garrett including possible arrest or criminal charges.
