NFL Media reported Wednesday morning that Mason Rudolph still was waiting for word on his appeal of a $50,000 fine he received from the fight with Myles Garrett on Nov. 14.

A few hours later, Mike Garafolo of NFL Media reports the league upheld the Steelers quarterback’s fine of $50,000.

The appeals process “took a while to work through,” Garafolo added.

The NFL reinstated Garrett on Wednesday.

The league initially handed Garrett an indefinite suspension for swinging Rudolph’s helmet at the quarterback’s head at the end of a Browns’ victory over the Steelers. The Browns defensive end missed the final six games of the season.

  1. OK. So all the loose ends of this drama have been tied up. Time to move on and leave it in the past.

  2. No disrespect intended, but I really cant see there being anything but a backup market at best for him.

  3. The City of Cleveland should create a Myles Garrett statue
    and erect it in the center of town.

  4. Garrett’s accusation was total B.S. and everyone knows it. Rudolph should get his $50 grand back for that reason alone.

  5. Insult to injury to insult. Clobbered, fined, lost his job as the starter and is now a backup to the backup…and Garrett gets reinstated to return t his starting role. You never see an actual starting QB give a defensive player the business, they leave that to the O-linemen, hence they don’t get their helmets ripped off and bonked like Foghorn Leghorn.

  6. Mason started it by grabbing Garrett’s face mask, and he is lucky it was just a glancing blow to his mellon.

  7. Typical NFL watching the tape Mason did nothing to start this but after being hit with weapon respond ed. League continue to shout player safety yet fine the victim allow one that could have killed a player back ln. Player safety all right.
