Former Browns Star Calls Out Steelers QB Mason Rudolph

Ogunjobi will be held out this week against the Miami Dolphins.

Appeals officer James Thrash, who was mutually chosen by the NFL and NFL Player's Association, elected to uphold the initial one-game suspension levied to Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi.

Cleveland's Myles Garrett reportedly will argue his suspension appeal in person on Wednesday. Rudolph avoided injury and was not suspended despite his attempt to grab Garrett's helmet or charging at him. "We're all just kind of waiting and just hope that justice is served, or whatever the case is gonna be for [Garrett]".

The brawl began in the waning seconds of the Browns' win last week, when Garrett got into a scrap with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, removed the QB's helmet and struck Rudolph's unprotected head with it. Pouncey then jumped on Garrett and threw several punches and kicks, and Ogunjobi shoved Rudolph from behind.

During his appeal hearing with the NFL on Wednesday, the Browns defensive end claimed Rudolph called him a racial slur right before a fight broke out between Cleveland and Pittsburgh at the end of their "Thursday Night Football" game on November 14, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Josina Anderson. "It is a potential re-escalation". That decision will also be announced later in the week.

On Wednesday, Rudolph, who likely will be fined for his involvement, said he doesn't begrudge Garrett.

"I saw my teammate getting jumped on and I went over to go help him out". "I'm not a dirty player and I'm not trying to hurt anybody".

"Again, I should have done a better job handling that situation".

He noted that the rivalry is always physical.

"What Myles and I talk about stays between Myles and I", Kitchens said. "This is an emotional game played by emotional men". Cleveland was able to beat Pittsburgh on Thursday night at home last week by the score of 21-7 as the game was pretty uneventful for the first 59 minutes.

'Whatever the league hands out, I am going to comply with, ' he told reporters. That's not what this organization is about. "What happened, happened and emotions flared".
