NFL Suspends Myles Garrett ''Indefinitely'' After Brutal Helmet Fight

Otherwise, the longest suspension for an in-game violation was held by Albert Haynesworth, suspended five games in 2006 after the then-Tennessee Titan stomped on a player's head. He yanked the helmet off Rudolph and swung wildly, hitting the quarterback on the top of the head. Garrett said he lost his "cool" when he met with reporters after the game.

Additionally, the Steelers and Browns have each been fined $250,000.

The league also said Garrett "violated unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct rules, as well as fighting and removing an opponent's helmet and using it as a weapon".

But it was the end of the game that left the worst impressions in Cleveland.

"There is no place for that in football and that is not reflective of the core values we strive for as an organisation", they said. "He understands what he did is totally unacceptable", Kitchens said. That sentiment was shared across the league and sports world.

The Cleveland Browns picked up a important win on Thursday night, moving to 4-6 by besting their rival Pittsburgh Steelers 21-7 in a matchup of AFC North rivals. "I just know that while I am the head coach here, that is not going to be acceptable in any form, fashion or anything".

Thursday night football's Cleveland Browns versus Pittsburgh Steelers clash saw an unprecedented incident instigate a brawl towards the end that had players on both sides ejected and facing suspension. As the two players were on the ground, it appeared Rudolph may have been either trying to remove Garrett's helmet, or had his hand stuck in Garrett's helmet. That prompted Rudolph to get up and chase after Garrett, which is when the defensive end swung the helmet. "I don't think it's overshadowed by what happened in eight seconds". This, to me, this comes back to coaching. "I appreciate the line always having my back and putting it to bed but I was angry - human". He also felt Pouncey's suspension was justified, though he expects the center to appeal it. Barney Hanson, part-owner of The Point Bar and Grill in Greensburg, said Pouncey likely reacted out of anger and in defense of a teammate. It's inexcusable, he knows that.

"Steelers win. You lose", he said. That made four ejections in the game, after Browns safety Damarious Randall was disqualified following a helmet-to-helmet hit that concussed Steelers wideout Diontae Johnson in the third quarter.

"It's not what direction we're headed in as an organization", Beckham said, still unsure of how to fully process the ugly scene. It was a melee unlike we've seen in the NFL.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes posted "Bro I can't believe that just happened" on Twitter following the game and Houston defensive end J.J. Watt wrote: "That. Is".

The NFL also suspended Steelers lineman Maurkice Pouncey for 3 games and Browns defender Larry Ogunjobi 1 game for their roles in an ensuing brawl following Garrett's actions.

"I've never seen that in my life".
