Mason Rudolph Revealed Who Really Started Myles Garrett Brawl
Mason Rudolph revealed who really started the Myles Garrett brawl during a recent press conference.
Last week, during Thursday’s game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns, a brawl broke out.
The part that everyone saw and went viral was Garrett ripping off Rudolph’s helmet and then smashing him in the head with it.
The lesser seen part of that altercation was what led up to it.
Right before the fight, Garrett hit Rudolph with what has been called a “late hit,” leading to Rudolph reaching up and trying to grasp at Garrett’s helmet.
From there, everyone saw what transpired.
On Wednesday, Rudolph came as close as he has thus far for owning up to starting the entire incident.
“I definitely didn’t say anything that escalated it,” he said.
“But like I said, I have to do a better job of keeping my composure in those situations.”

Garrett was suspended indefinitely for hitting Rudolph over the head with his helmet, but the NFL will decide once and for all this week how long the suspension will actually be.
