Pouncey Hit with Three Game Suspension Following Fight at End of Game Thursday

It will go down as one of, if not the ugliest fights in the history of the NFL, and today both the Steelers and Browns are feeling it with player suspensions as well as in the pocketbook.

The hard to watch incident with eight seconds left in the 21-7 loss to the Browns is going to cost center Maurkice Pouncey three games, meaning he will be watching when the Steelers and Browns meet in 16 days at Heinz Field.

Pouncey came to the aid of his quarterback, Mason Rudolph, who was hit in the head with a helmet swung by Browns DE Myles Garrett.

Garrett has been suspended without pay indefinitely, at least the rest of the season, and who knows the suspension could go into 2020.

Another Browns player, Larry Ogunjoi, has been suspended one game after he pushed Rudolph from behind after he was hit in the head with his helmet.

Ogunjobi will appeal the suspension, but even if he serves it he’ll be on the field for the rematch with Cleveland in two weeks.

The teams also were hit heavy in the wallet, as the league has fined each team $250,000, which you can see in the tweet below.

    Pouncy suspension is unreasonable. Garrett could’ve killed Mason. I understand that with Garrett on the ground Mason was now “safe” (until hit from behind again), but do only 1 game. 3 is excessive.
