More than 50,000 Browns fans sign online petition to reinstate Myles Garrett

More than 50,000 Browns fans sign online petition to reinstate Myles Garrett

Rudolph grabbed the back of Garrett's helmet before the Browns defensive end dragged the quarterback up by his face mask, eventually tearing it off his head and hitting him with it. Maurkice Pouncey reacted to that by flying in and swinging at Garrett while David DeCastro took him down.

The NFL suspended Garrett without pay for at least the remainder of the 2019 season after his confrontation with Rudolph in the closing seconds of the Browns' victory over the Steelers on "Thursday Night Football".

Garrett eventually yanked off Rudolph's helmet and while being restrained by two Pittsburgh linemen, swung wildly at a charging Rudolph, connecting with the top of the quarterback's head.

"It's unfortunate, and as much as I just want to be, 'It's life, ' things do happen", wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. said following the game.

The Browns have placed starting safety Morgan Burnett on injured reserve with a torn Achilles tendon, another setback for Cleveland's defence.

Prior to the controversy, Twitter had pledged to make it easier to report misleading information about the voting process in the upcoming election.

Citing a source, Schefter also said that Garrett wants to be there in person at the league offices in NY to state his case in person. I'm still a Myles fan and I'm going to support him.

James Thrash, an appeals officer jointly appointed by the NFL and NFL Players Association, will preside over the hearing.

"Of course he was", Sheldon Richardson said Monday, according to ESPN. "I know that. Myles knows that". The helmet is overboard, let's get that clear. Guy keeps rushing me, even with the helmet off, he's asking for it. The NFL Network reported Friday that Rudolph will not be suspended for his role in the fight.

The Browns may also be missing defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi, who was suspended one game for shoving Rudolph.
