CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is gearing up to appeal his indefinite suspension after getting into a nationally-televised fight with Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph that, well, you know what happened. Right now a lot of Browns fans are naturally wondering how the NFL appeals process works.

It's pretty simple.

Garrett will go to New York to attend the appeal hearing, which is on Wednesday.

His request will be heard by appeals officer James Thrash, a former NFL player.

After Thrash hears Garrett's appeal, he will hear the league's case against him.

When both sides are done making their case, Thrash will make a decision to either uphold the suspension, negate the suspension or reduce the suspension, according to the NFL.

The NFL has no timeline for when Thrash has to make a decision.
