Report: Steelers QB fined $50,000 for role in ugly brawl
According to NFL insider Ian Rappaport, Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph has been fined $50,000 for his rule in the ugly brawl at the end of last Thursday’s game against the Cleveland Browns.
Taken to the ground hard by Myles Garrett after throwing a pass with just 8 seconds left in the game on November 14, Rudolph took umbrage and began to struggle against Garrett. Garrett ripped Rudolph’s helmet off and struck him in the head with it. Garrett has been suspended indefinitely by the league. Earlier this week, it was reported that Garrett told NFL officials Rudolph used a racial slur during the fracas.
Garrett’s suspension was upheld by the league. Two other players, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and Browns Defensive Lineman Larry Ogunjobi were also suspended.
