Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett was reinstated by the NFL on Wednesday after missing the final six games of the 2019 season to suspension.

Garrett was suspended after taking off the helmet of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and hitting him in the head with with it during a “Monday Night Football” game on Nov. 14.

Days after the game, Garrett claimed Rudolph directed racial slurs in his direction. While no one else on the field heard it, Garrett is now doubling down on that.

“He called me the N-word,” Garrett told ESPN’s "Outside The Lines" during an interview to be aired Thursday. “He called me a ‘stupid N-word.'”

Rudolph received a $50,000 fine for his role in the ugly incident, but was not suspended by the NFL. He also denied the claims by Garrett.

“I couldn’t believe it,” the quarterback said later in November. “I couldn’t believe he would go that route after the fact.”

We’ll likely never get a full picture of what happened on the field in Cleveland that Monday night, but it’s not stopping Garrett from doubling down on the allegations.
