CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett released a statement after the league's decision was handed down on Friday to indefinitely suspend him.

“Last night, I made a terrible mistake. I lost my cool and what I did was selfish and unacceptable. I know that we are all responsible for our actions and I can only prove my true character through my actions moving forward. I want to apologize to Mason Rudolph, my teammates, our entire organization, our fans and to the NFL. I know I have to be accountable for what happened, learn from my mistake and I fully intend to do so.”

NFL official Michael Signora said Garrett will be out for at least the rest of the season and must meet with the commissioner's office before a decision is made on his reinstatement.

Both teams have been fined $250,000.
