Myles Garrett committed an act Thursday night that many watching the Browns-Steelers game were looking into their TVs thinking what I just watched was assault.
With only seconds remaining in the game, star Browns defensive end tackled Mason Rudolph late, to which the Steelers QB took offense to. Myles Garrett then ripped Rudolph’s helmet off and swung it, and hit, at his exposed head.
The act was so egregious, Cleveland police were in the Browns locker room following the game.
Cleveland Police just walked out of the #Browns locker room.
That’s a first for me.

Rudolph someone came out of the brawl unharmed, but if the consequences to what could have happened to him if the helmet him hit in just a slightly different angle could have been dire.
Younger & Associates, of which Timothy Younger is Mason Rudolph’s agent, tweeted early Friday morning, “There are many risks an NFL QB assumes with every snap taken on the field. Being hit on your uncovered head by a helmet being swung by a 275 lb DE is not one of them. Tonight could have had a catastrophic ending. The matter will be reviewed thoroughly.”
Ruldoph’s agent is reportedly not ruling out taking legal action against Garrett.
