Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was ejected Thursday night after an altercation in the NFL game between the Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers for ripping off quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet and striking him on the head with it.

Garrett was suspended indefinitely Friday morning. The suspension will last at minimum through the regular season and playoffs, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey were also ejected after the incident. Pouncey pounced on Garrett and punched him as other teammates tried to break up the fight. Pouncey was suspended for three games, and Ogunjobi for one game.

Cleveland coach Freddie Kitchens said Garrett’s actions were “embarassing” and there was “no excuse” for what he did, according to ESPN.

Garrett’s action ignited a firestorm on Twitter and from NFL and sports experts across the country.
