The league is set to review Garrett's situation after the season to see if/when he will be reinstated. Many around the league want him kicked out for good, but the lack of injury to Rudolph may put those talks to a halt quickly. Although, he may very well miss some games in the 2020 season after the NFL re-visits it in the off-season. Garrett did admit to his mistake in a statement on Friday, saying he "lost my cool" in the situation, as there has been no word on any potential appeal from him on the punishment. He also went as far as to apologize to Rudolph and the entire Steelers organization for the incident.
Elsewhere, Maurkice Pouncey of the Steelers received a three-game suspension for retaliating against Garrett by spearing him down and bombarding him with punches and kicks. Larry Ogunjobi of the Browns was also suspended one game for sending Rudolph down to the ground from behind after he took the helmet to the head. All three players were ejected and both teams were fined $250,000 on Friday. Garrett's suspension is for at least six games, which is an NFL record for a single incident. Now the Browns and Steelers have never liked each other, and this just adds to it, and the fun part for fans is that the division rivals play once again in just two weeks.
