Myles Garrett will appeal his indefinite suspension.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Garrett’s appeal is set for Wednesday, and appeals officer James Thrash will hear it, per a source informed of the situation.
Thrash is jointly appointed by the NFL and NFLPA to hear appeals of discipline for on-field actions.
Garrett will attend the hearing in person and is allowed to do so, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports.
The NFL suspended the Cleveland Browns defensive end on Friday without pay indefinitely, adding that at minimum Garrett will miss the regular season and postseason stemming from Thursday’s brawl with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Garrett ripped the helmet off Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and later swung it, hitting the signal-caller in the head.
The two other players also suspended in the aftermath of the fracas will also have their appeals heard this week.
The league said while handing down the suspensions Friday that further penalties, including fines, could be handed down following the fight. NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reported that the NFL is expected to fine Rudolph for his role.
