Steel­ers QB Ru­dolph hit with $50K fine

Chicago Tribune (Sunday) - - SCOREBOARD -

Steel­ers quar­ter­back Ma­son Ru­dolph didn’t es­cape the brawl with the Browns un­pun­ished.

Ru­dolph was fined $50,000 on Saturday by the NFL for his in­volve­ment in the melee that be­gan when Browns de­fen­sive end Myles Gar­rett pulled off his hel­met and hit him over the head with it.

Ru­dolph avoided sus­pen­sion for his ac­tions — he tried to pull off Gar­rett’s hel­met and charged him — but was one 33 play­ers fined by the league for their in­volve­ment.

In all, the league handed out more than $700,000 for dis­ci­pline stem­ming from the ugly fi­nal sec­onds of the Browns’ 21-7 win last week.

Gar­rett was in­def­i­nitely sus­pended by the league for tear­ing off Ru­dolph’s hel­met and us­ing it “as a weapon.” His ap­peal was de­nied ear­lier this week.
