Mason Rudolph avoided a suspension for his role in a fight with Myles Garrett during the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to the Cleveland Browns on November 14, but he received a fine.
NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport said on Saturday that Rudolph was fined $50,000 for his role in the fight. Rapoport adds that other players were fined for leaving the bench. Here is the full list of fines:

Some will still feel that this discipline for Rudolph is not significant enough and that he deserves more. Others will feel this is fair.
The fight fallout took a new direction this week after Garrett, during his appeal hearing, accused Rudolph of using a racial slur during their fight. Garrett’s appeal was denied, meaning the defensive lineman is still suspended indefinitely. Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey had his suspension reduced from three to two games.
