Browns to take first steps without Myles Garrett

It seems that the Browns are going to stay for a while without Myles Garrett, who has been suspended. Garrett begins his unspecified suspension from the NFL for kicking Pittsburgh quarterback, Mason Rudolph in the head and swinging a helmet. The Browns have taken their first steps in a season that will not be including their best defensive player. Garrett’s ban, which is pending his plea includes the final six regular-season games and also the postseason, is a big setback for the Browns (4-6). They are 2-0 in the AFC North for the very first time and they were gaining traction after a very slow start.

Myles Garrett

Another Hurdle, Perhaps Even Biggest One Yet.

”We have a strong bunch of guys,” said coach Freddie Kitchens, first-year as the club began preparing for the following game against Miami. ”They have made peace with the challenge every week. It looks like it has been something dissimilar every week. That is how football seasons are, though.’

While the Browns are trying to recover and change, they’re still dealing with emotions in the result of Garrett’s striking loss of control, an on-field event that has conquered discussion around the league and on even social media for days. Garrett’s actions were not condoned by any of the Browns NFL players; however, defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson believes that Rudolph bears responsibility for what took place. After having been taken down by Garrett after a pass, Rudolph tried to pry off the Pro Bowler’s helmet and then kicked him. Once he got on his feet and lost his helmet, Rudolph kept charging at Garrett.

”It’s on camera what he was doing,” Richardson said. ”There’s no beating it no matter what he says to the media.”

Rudolph wasn’t suspended however; he will most likely experience a very firm fine. Richardson said that is not sufficient. In his own view, Garrett was only defending himself. The league suspended the Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi one match for shoving Rudolph. The Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey has also suspended three matches for pressing and having to kick Garrett as he was laying under the Pittsburgh guard David DiCastro.
