Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been suspended indefinitely following a fight in the closing moments of the Browns' 21-7 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers Thursday night.

During the fight, Garrett ripped the helmet off Steelers' QB Mason Rudolph and swung it at Rudolph's head.

The NFL made clear that Garrett's suspension would last for the remainder of the 2019 season and postseason at minimum. Garrett must meet with the NFL commissioner's office before his reinstatement.

In addition, Steelers' offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey was suspended three games for kicking a Browns player during the fight, and Browns defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi was suspended for one game.

Both the Steelers and Browns organizations were fined $250,000.
