Garrett got suspended from the league for the incident in which he claims that Rudolph called him a racial slur and that’s why he went after the quarterback.
Garrett said in an interview on Outside the Lines that Rudolph called him a “stupid N-word” which Rudolph adamantly denies.
“1000% False,” Rudolph tweeted after Outside the Lines aired the Garrett interview.
“Bold-Faced Lie. I did not, have not, and would not utter a racial-slur. This is a disgusting and reckless attempt to assassinate my character.”

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin supported his quarterback and basically called out Garrett.
“I support Mason Rudolph not only because I know him, but also because I was on that field immediately following the altercation with Myles Garrett, and subsequently after the game. I interacted with a lot of people in the Cleveland Browns organization — players and coaches,” Tomlin said in the statement.
“If Mason said what Myles claimed, it would have come out during the many interactions I had with those in the Browns’ organization. In my conversations, I had a lot of expressions of sorrow for what transpired. I received no indication of anything racial or anything of that nature in those interactions.”
