Cleveland Browns’ Myles Garrett says helmet-swinging incident vs. Pittsburgh Steelers is in the past

22

BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett said Friday that he’s gotten over last year’s incident against the Steelers in which he ripped the helmet off Mason Rudolph and slugged the Pittsburgh quarterback in the head with it. Garrett, who received a season-ending suspension for the incident, said he’s expecting a clean game for Sunday’s rematch in Pittsburgh. “We’ll see when we play,” Garrett said. “But their head coach [Mike Tomlin] said they’re past it. We’re past it as a team. We’re ready to go out there and play ball.” Garrett missed the final six games of the season, was fined $45,623 and lost roughly $1.2 million in salary for the incident, which came in the closing seconds of Cleveland’s 21-7 victory on Nov. 14. Privately in appealing his suspension, and later publicly on ESPN’s Outside the Lines, Garrett accused Rudolph of inciting him by calling him the “the N-word.”
