It was reported by Schefter earlier Thursday that Garrett claimed Rudolph called him a racial slur before at attack at the end of last Thursday’s game during his appeal hearing.

Rudolph denied the claims and a strongly-worded letter sent by his lawyer called it a “lie”.

Steelers defensive captain Cameron Heyward called the slur accusation “stupid’ and stands by Rudolph.
Garrett’s appeal was denied by the league and he is still suspended indefinitely.
