CLEVELAND (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - No charges have been filed against Browns defensive end Myles Garrett after his attack on Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph Thursday night, according to Cleveland Police.

Reporter Thomas Barrabi, who covers sports for Fox Business, says the department released the following statement:

"There are no charges filed as there was no police report filed by the person hit with the helmet."

In the closing moments of Thursday night’s game in Cleveland, Garrett ripped Rudolph’s helmet off of his head and hit him in the head with it.

Garrett is expected to face a suspension but it is unknown how severe the punishment will be.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter called Garrett’s actions “assault”.

Another NFL expert Brooke Pryor says that Rudolph’s agent is considering all legal option.

Steelers Coach Mike Tomlin refused to comment after the game.

But NFL Network and Hall of Famer Deion Sanders said that Rudolph should be fined for starting the incident.

Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey could also face a suspension after he punched and kicked Garrett trying to get him off of Rudolph.
