Myles Garrett was suspended indefinitely by the NFL on Friday for his actions in the Thursday night game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The incident occurred in the final seconds of the game, when Garrett struck Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph on the head with his own helmet 

Some of the NFL’s biggest names expressed their shock at the situation on Twitter after the incident, expressing how crazy they thought the altercation was. 

 

Former Patriots receiver Antonio Brown even got a joke in.

 

Some members of the media were almost immediately discussing how violent an attack it was and were calling for the long-term suspension of Garrett.

Other prominent NFL figures thought that Mason Rudolph was ultimately responsible as they believe he initiated the fight.    

One prominent name that agreed with these points is the infamous O.J Simpson

 

The incident was seen as so gruesome and violent by some that they were calling for legal action to be taken against Garrett. 

 

Rudolph himself has not ruled out taking a legal course of action over the fight.
