NFL Suspends Myles Garrett, two others after Thursday Night melee

Sports

(WTAJ) — The NFL has fined Pittsburgh and Cleveland $250,000 each and handed out three suspensions after what happened during Thursday night’s game.

Myles Garrett has been suspended without pay indefinitely, at minimum for the remainder of the season and postseason.

Maurkice Pouncey has been suspended without pay for three games and fined an additional amount for fighting.

Larry Ogunjobi has been suspended without pay for one game and fined an additional amount of unnecessary roughness.

The NFL stated that additional discipline for other players will be happening through the standard accountability process, including players that left the bench to enter the fight area.

While it is unlikely, Garrett could face legal issues and one local attorney says they could come at the hands of Ohio law enforcement.

“The Cleveland Police Department or the Ohio version of our district attorneys here in Pennsylvania could opt to try and file criminal charges against the wrongdoer on the basis of some kind of assault.”
