CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been suspended by the NFL for at least the rest of season and postseason.

The decision came Friday, the day after Garrett ripped off Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet and hit him with it in the head in the final seconds as the Browns’ 21-7 win on Thursday night ended with a wild brawl between the rivals.

Players from both sidelines spilled on the field during the wild melee, which began after Garrett wrestled Rudolph to the ground after he threw the ball on a meaningless play with the outcome decided. Garrett, Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey and Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi were ejected.

Here’s a statement from the Browns:
