Thursday night got ugly. Probably one of the worst things in sports fans have ever seen. As a result, Cleveland Browns defensive star, Myles Garrett has been suspended by the league for the remainder of the year and playoffs — possibly longer.

If you missed the “swing”, watch here:

Garrett’s suspension marks the longest in NFL history for a single on-field incident.

Also suspended by the league was Browns defensive tackle, Larry Ogunjobi for one game, and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey for three games. Pouncey has also been fined. No suspensions or fines have been announced for Steelers quarterback, Mason Rudolph. Pouncey has stated that he plans to appeal his suspension.

Both the Browns and Steelers organizations were fined $250,000 each for the incident by the NFL.

“What I did was foolish, and I shouldn’t allow myself to slip like that,” Garrett said afterward. “That’s out of character, but a situation like that where it’s an emotional game, and I allowed myself to fall into those emotions with what happened.”

Browns owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam put out this statement Friday afternoon:

“We are extremely disappointed in what transpired last evening at the end of our game,” the statement said. “There is no place for that in football and that is not reflective of the core values we strive for as an organization. We sincerely apologize to Mason Rudolph and the Pittsburgh Steelers. Myles Garrett has been a good teammate and member of our organization and community for the last three years but his actions last night were completely unacceptable. We understand the consequences from the league for his actions.”

We’ll keep you posted as this continues to unravel.
