Rudolph was not suspended for his involvement in the incident, which included Browns defensive end Myles Garrett ripping the helmet off the quarterback and using it as a weapon.


Garrett claimed Rudolph used a racial slur, although the NFL said it found no evidence of that.


Garrett has been suspended indefinitely, Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi was banned one game and Steelers offensive lineman Maurkice Pouncey was suspended for two after initially receiving a three-game ban.


Additionally, both teams were fined $250,000.


On Saturday, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero also tweeted the list of 29 members of the two teams who were fined $3,507 each for leaving the sidelines and entering the "fighting area."
