NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell gave advice on how Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett could end his indefinite suspension to swing a helmet on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.
Garrett received the open suspension Friday, hours after the incident took place in a game between the Steelers and the Browns. Goodell dealt with the incident and the suspension with the Pre-Flight Playbook before Garrett officially filed to appeal his suspension.

“It was in my opinion and I think [that of] our football people, something that has to be dealt with very quickly and very firmly to make it clear to the players that it is not acceptable and for the clubs, "Goodell said. "There's no place for it in the game."
Asked how Garrett can reduce the indefinite waiver, Goodell said: "He'll probably meet us sometime during the season, and I think we'll make a judgment if he has any regrets?"

Garrett will meet former NFL wide receiver James Thrash, who currently serves as a league monitoring officer for player discipline. Thrash has previously been able to reduce shutdowns, but has not handled an event as serious as Garrett and Rudolph's brawl.
Garrett apologized for his actions on the pitch and is reportedly claiming that players cannot be interrupted indefinitely for actions on the field under the league's collective bargaining agreement.
