REPORT: NFL Plans To Fine “About 10 Players” For Their Involvement In The Steelers-Browns Brawl

Following the wild brawl on Thursday Night Football between the Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers, we found out that Myles Garrett was suspended indefinitely, Maurkice Pouncey was suspended for 3 games and Larry Ogunjobi was suspended for a game.

Steelers QB Mason Rudolph was also fined.

But the NFL isn’t done handing down fines. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the NFL will be issuing fines to roughly 10 players for leaving the bench area and running onto the field:

Aside from the fines doled out to quarterback Mason Rudolph and other participants in Thursday night’s ugly brawl between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns, the NFL will be issuing mass fines to about 10 players for leaving the bench area and running on the field, league sources told ESPN.

League officials still are poring over the video to determine how many players will get fined — the NFL first wanted to discipline the main perpetrators — but it is expected to be a lengthy list, with the fines being doled out next weekend, according to a source.

The NFL’s 2019 fine schedule calls for players who unnecessarily enter the fight area with no active involvement to be fined $3,507 for a first offense and $10,527 for a second offense.
