NEW YORK CITY — Myles Garrett was spotted leaving his appeal meeting after less than two hours at an office in New York City Wednesday morning.

It appears Garrett has made his case, and it is now up to appeals officer James Thrash, a former NFL player. Thrash will also hear the league’s case against Garrett. Thrash will then make a decision to either uphold, negate or reduce the suspension.

Sources told ESPN’s Dianna Russini that “the decision on Myles Garrett’s appeal could come over the next day or two.” It was explained by the source that they want to make a decision on this quickly.

“Myles has great representation,” Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens said. “More importantly, Myles will represent himself well. We’re going to continue to support him and Larry [Ogunjobi] and we will not waver with that support.”

Garrett was suspended indefinitely on Friday after getting into a nationally-televised fight with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph that, well, you know what happened.

Rudolph said Wednesday there is “no acceptable” excuse for his role in the brawl. Rudolph said he felt Garrett hit him “late” on the next-to-last snap of Cleveland’s 21-7 victory Thursday. Rudolph said he is fine and holds no ill will toward Garrett.

The NFL confirmed later in the day Wednesday that a decision will be made on Garrett later this week.
