CLEVELAND — After investigating the claims Myles Garrett was called a racial slur by Steelers’ quarterback Mason Rudolph before the on-field altercation last Thursday, the NFL disputed his allegations and said it found “no such evidence.”

During his appeal hearing in New York on Wednesday, Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett alleged that Mason Rudolph called him a racial slur.

Rudolph denied the allegation.

"Mason vehemently denies the report of being accused of using a racial slur,” a Steelers spokesman told ESPN's Jake Trotter.

Garrett was suspended indefinitely on Friday after getting into a nationally-televised fight Rudolph.

An NFL appeals officer made the decision to uphold Garrett’s indefinite suspension Friday, just before the league announced its findings into the racial slur allegations.

Garret is ineligible to play for the remainder of the season and any postseason games. He will be able to apply for reinstatement next season.
