PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph has been fined $50,000 for his involvement in a fight with Browns players last week, according to ESPN.

Ian Rapoport tweeted the announcement on Saturday afternoon.

Rapoport also stated that additional players will be fined.

Browns' defensive end Myles Garrett was placed on an indefinite suspension for his part in the fight. Garrett has alleged that Rudolph called him a racial slur just before last week’s brawl in the last eight seconds of the game against the Steelers.

Garrett received the suspension after he wrestled Steelers' quarterback Mason Rudolph to the ground in the last eight seconds of the game.

In a scrum on the ground, Rudolph got his hand on Garrett’s helmet first 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 wildly, hitting the quarterback on the top of the head. Rudolph threw his arms in the air in disbelief after the impact.

Garrett tried to appeal the suspension, but the NFL upheld the decision.
