The NFL appeals committee has convened and there is one major outcome that will impact the Arizona Cardinals.
The appeals officers decided:— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 21, 2019
— #Browns DE Myles Garrett’s indefinite suspension was upheld.
— #Steelers OL Maurkice Pouncey’s 3-game suspension was turned into 2 games.
For the Cardinals, there will still be no Myles Garrett in their meeting on December 15, 2019.
Garrett ran an appeal out that was denied by the NFL, so he’ll continue to be suspended indefinitely for his wild helmet swinging at Mason Rudolph.
However, the Cardinals will now face center Maurkice Pouncey in his return from suspension on December 8, 2019.
Pouncey was originally slated to miss three games, but his suspension was reduced to two games. While Pouncey definitely was an aggressor in the altercation, it was in defense of Rudolph after Garrett had used Rudolph’s helmet as a club. Which is how the NFL came to their decision.
So, we’ll see Pouncey back in a Steelers uniform. Hopefully Mason Rudolph is still the quarterback.
