Myles Garrett Accuses Mason Rudolph Of Using Racial Slur

By Osvaldo Colina - Saturday November 23 2019

While attending his appeal hearing for an indefinite suspension, Myles Garrett claimed that Mason Rudolph used a racial slur before the fight took place.

Cleveland Browns Myles Garrett and Pittsburgh Steelers Mason Rudolph got in a violent brawl last Thursday that escalated into Garrett taking off Rudolph’s helmet and hitting him with it. Myles Garrett, who is playing the defensive end for the Browns, is suspended for the rest of the regular season and playoffs.

The two appeals officers of the NFL James Thrash and Derrick Brooks made a final decision regarding the appeals of both Myles Garrett and Maurkice Pouncey. The punishment levied against Garrett was upheld. On the other hand, Pittsburgh Steelers Center Maurkice Pouncey's suspension of three games was reduced to two games for punching and kicking Garrett following the brawl with his teammate Mason Rudolph.

Rudolph has denied using a racial slur against Garrett prior to the brawl. Speaking through a team official he “vehemently” denied the allegation and declined to further speak on the matter.
