AFC North Notes: Bengals, Browns, Ravens, Steelers




  • Browns HC Freddie Kitchens said of DE Myles Garrett being suspended indefinitely: “We’ll support him, he’ll learn from it, our team will learn from it.” (Scott Petrak)
  • Kitchens added: “(Garrett) understands the magnitude of what occurred last night and he’s very remorseful. He’s very sorry for his actions. He understands he let himself down, he let his teammates down, he let his organization down.” (Nick Shook)
  • Tom Pelissero explains that Garrett’s indefinite suspension will result in him spending the remainder of his career on “strike two” in terms of the NFL’s conduct policy, which means even minor infractions could result in more serious punishment from here on.
  • According to Kitchens, DE Olivier Vernon‘s knee injury is still a day by day thing, but he is getting closer. (Nate Ulrich)
  • Scott Petrak reports that Browns S Damarious Randall won’t be suspended for helmet-to-helmet on Steelers WR Diontae Johnson that led to his ejection from Thursday’s game.


  • Ravens HC John Harbaugh said Friday that DT Michael Pierce (ankle) will a game-time decision after missing practice all week. (Jamison Hensley)
  • The Baltimore Ravens officially list DT Michael Pierce (ankle) as doubtful for Week 11 and WR Marquise Brown (ankle) and WR Chris Moore (thumb) as questionable.


Tim Younger, the agent for Steelers QB Mason Rudolph, told Brooke Pryor of ESPN earlier in the day that they aren’t ruling out any legal options in the aftermath of the brawl that took place at the end of Thursday’s game.

“I am gathering all information and no options have been removed from the table,”  Younger said.

However, Ian Rapoport reports that Rudolph won’t take legal action against Garrett and considers the situation to be exclusively an NFL matter.
