Berea, Ohio (92.3 The Fan) – Myles Garrett’s season is over and it is unclear when Garrett will play again.

The Browns’ defensive end has lost his appeal.

Garrett was suspended indefinitely without pay by the league less than 12 hours after ripping the helmet off Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and hitting him with it touching off a brawl in the closing seconds of Cleveland’s 21-7 win.

Garrett was also fined an undisclosed amount for the incident. NFL Network reported the fine was $45,623.

Thrash heard Garrett’s appeal Wednesday morning in New York City.

The suspension for Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey was reduced from 3 games to 2 following his appeal but the additional fine of $35,096 was upheld.

Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi also lost his appeal of a 1-game suspension, which he will serve this week against Miami, for shoving Rudolph in the back.
