Myles Garrett’s appeal of indefinite suspension will be heard Wednesday

BEREA — Myles Garrett will make his case to have his indefinite suspension reduced Wednesday morning at an appeals hearing in New York, the league said.

Garrett will attend the hearing, according to multiple reports.

A ruling is generally issued within a day of the appeal.

Garrett, the Pro Bowl defensive end, was suspended indefinitely by the NFL on Friday for hitting Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph on top of the head with Rudolph’s helmet Thursday night during the Browns’ 21-7 win.


The league stated Garrett must miss the final six games of the regular season and the playoffs if the Browns were to qualify, and would have to meet with the commissioner’s office before he could be reinstated.

Defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi’s appeal hearing is Monday. He was suspended one game for knocking Rudolph to the ground from behind after Rudolph’s run-in with Garrett.

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey was suspended three games for punching and kicking Garrett while he was on the ground. Pouncey’s appeal hearing is Tuesday.

Former NFL receiver James Thrash will be the appeals officer for Garrett and Ogunjobi. Former linebacker Derrick Brooks will hear Pouncey’s appeal.

Thrash and Brooks were jointly appointed by the NFL and players union.
