Garrett had reportedly alleged that Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph used a racial slur against him and that it what prompted him to lose his temper, rip Rudolph’s helmet off of his head and then hit him in the head with it.

That argument didn’t seem to persuade the league to reduce his suspension.

The Steelers/Browns matchup was moved to 1 p.m. after originally being slotted for 4:25.
