Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was reinstated by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Wednesday from his indefinite suspension, the team announced.
The lifting of the suspension comes two days after Garrett met with Goodell in New York, The Plain Dealer reported. Garrett was suspended indefinitely after ripping the helmet off Mason Rudolph and hitting the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback over the head with it during the closing seconds in a Nov. 14 game at Cleveland.
“We welcome Myles back to our organization with open arms,” Andrew Berry, the Browns general manager and executive vice president, said in a news release. “We know he is grateful to be reinstated, eager to put the past behind him and continue to evolve and grow as a leader. We look forward to having his strong positive presence back as a teammate, player and person in our community.”
Garrett took to Twitter, noting he was back.
