BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been permitted back into the team’s training facility in Berea by the NFL, according to an article by Nate Ulrich of News 5 media partner Akron Beacon Journal.
Garrett was indefinitely suspended on Nov. 15 following a brawl that broke out during the final eight seconds of the Nov. 14 game against the Steelers.
In a scrum on the ground, Steelers’ quarterback Mason Rudolph got his hand on Garrett’s helmet and appeared to kick Garrett in the groin while the players grappled. Garrett got back on his feet, yanked Rudolph’s helmet off and swung it, hitting the quarterback on the top of the head.
Garrett filed an appeal, but NFL appeals officer James Thrash made the decision to uphold the indefinite suspension and the defensive end was barred from the team’s training facilities.
While Garrett must wait until next season to apply for reinstatement, the league has recently restored his access to the facility, the article said.
Garrett is still unable to practice or attend team meetings, but he can now be present in the locker room and work individually with the training and medical staff, according to the article.
