CLEVELAND – The agent for Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph does not rule out any legal options after the close combat on Thursday.
"I collect all the information and no options have been deleted from the table," Tim Younger said, as reached by SMS Friday morning.
Cleveland police Sgt. Jennifer Ciaccia said on Friday that she did not investigate Brown's defensive end Myles Garrett, adding that they had not received any complaint from Rudolph.
Rudolph was hit in the head by Garrett with his own helmet after the defensive end demolished it last second after the Steelers' 21: 7 loss.
A spokeswoman for the city said the prosecutor's office could not comment because Rudolph had not filed a complaint.
The fight began when Garrett Rudolph brought in the ring reason for the quarterback's short pass to Trey Edmunds on the third and long. Rudolph seemed to be trying to replace Garrett's helmet as the two words exchanged. When Rudolph got up, Garrett tore off Rudolph's helmet and hurled it at him as David DeCastro tried to push Garrett away.
"It was pretty cowardly," said Rudolph. "Pretty Bush League."
The incident recalled Tennessee's Albert Haynesworth, who stomped on the head of the cowboy Andre Gurode in a 2006 game. Haynesworth was suspended for five games, but Gurode decided against filing criminal charges or filing a civil suit.
Younger tweeted about the incident on Thursday night after the game took every snapshot on the field, "wrote Younger." A helmet swung by a 275-pound DE hit his head is not one of them. Tonight could have had a catastrophic end. The matter will be thoroughly reviewed. "
