The former Oklahoma State quarterback called Garrett’s actions “bush league.”

Former Oklahoma State Cowboys quarterback Mason Rudolph’s helmet was tore off by Browns defensive end Myles Garrett and struck the Steelers signal caller in the head in the final seconds of Thursday’s game in Cleveland.

Rudolph dumped a pass to running back Trey Edmunds, then was dragged to the ground by Garrett. Rudolph appeared to pull on Garrett’s helmet while the two were on the ground before Garrett ripped off the quarterback’s helmet once they stood up and hit Rudolph in the head with it.

Rudolph then turned with his arms up toward NFL official Clete Blakeman before he was pushed from behind to the ground by Browns tackle Larry Ogunjobi. Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey started throwing punches and kicks at Garrett in the helmet while he was on the ground. Garrett, Ogunjobi and Pouncey were all ejected.

Garrett and Pouncey both are expected to face suspensions.

This is all ugly
