Myles Garrett To Appeal Suspension, Latest Details On Punishments And Fines

Browns defensive end Myles Garrett plans to appeal his indefinite suspension that was handed down following his wild helmet shot on Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph during last Thursday’s game.

Garrett’s camp will argue the collective bargaining agreement does not allow for indefinite suspensions for on-field acts and that the league should impose a ban for a set number of games.

In addition to Garrett getting an indefinite suspension, which includes a minimum of the rest of this season and postseason, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey was suspended for three games and Browns defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi was suspended for one game.

All players were fined and more fines are expected. In addition to the player fines already announced, both teams were hit with $250,000 sanctions.

Appeals for Garrett, Pouncey and Ogunjobi will be heard on Monday and Tuesday by jointly-appointed officers Derrick Brooks and James Thrash. Rulings are expected no later than Wednesday.

In total, at least 10 players will be fined with an announcement coming next weekend.
