During the melee, Larry Ogunjobi pushed Rudolph to the ground from behind after Rudolph had been hit by Garrett; Maurkice Pouncey jumped into Garrett and kicked him as Steelers teammate David DeCastro pinned Garrett to the ground.
Garrett was suspended indefinitely after the game by the NFL. He was also fined.
Garrett apologized for his actions but also later accused Rudolph of using a racial slur during the fight.
“What I did was foolish, and I shouldn’t allow myself to slip like that,” Garrett told ESPN after the game. “That’s out of character, but a situation like that where it’s an emotional game, and I allowed myself to fall into those emotions with what happened.”
