Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been reinstated by the NFL. Garrett was suspended indefinitely by the NFL after a Week 11 brawl with the Pittsburgh Steelers. In the fight, he ripped off quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet and attempted to hit him in the head with it.
The Cleveland Browns made their official statement on Wednesday morning, via Twitter.

Garrett was ejected from the game immediately after the brawl. After the game, the NFL stated that he would be suspended indefinitely, but at least the remainder of the 2019 season. Garrett appealed the suspension to no avail.
After meeting with the NFL on Monday, they agreed to allow him back into the league, provided that he do everything that would be required of him. Garrett issued an apology after the incident during Week 11 and accepted the NFL’s appeals ruling in 2019.
One of the most athletic defensive ends in the league should be ready for Week 1 action in 2020.
