CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett doubled down and alleged that Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph used the “N-word," which, he says, sparked the on-field brawl in November at FirstEnergy Stadium, ESPN reports.

“He called me the N-word,” Garrett told Outside The Lines’ Mina Kimes. “He called me a ‘stupid N-word.’ ”

The NFL suspended Garrett for the final six games of the 2019 season for ripping Rudolph’s helmet off and striking him in the head with it during the Browns’ 21-7 win on Nov. 14.

The incident also cost Garrett about $1.2 million in pay and nearly $50,000 in fines.

Garrett was reinstated by the NFL this week.
