Myles Garrett waited one week, but says Mason Rudolph used a racial slur which led to the brawl at the end of the Cleveland Browns victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. After Garrett took Rudolph’s helmet and whacked him over the head, he immediately apologized after the game. The NFL handed out an indefinite suspension to Garrett along with multiple suspensions and fines to numerous players. With most fines and suspensions, players will appeal hoping for a reduction in their punishment.
After one week, Garrett said that Rudolph enticed him by using a racial slur. Why did it take one week for Garrett to mention this action?
