Browns head coach Freddie Kitchens and quarterback Baker Mayfield were scathing of Garrett, who addressed the incident himself post-game.’THAT’S ASSAULT’: NFL players react to Myles Garrett’s helmet-swinging attack”I made a mistake, I lost my cool and I regret it,” Garrett told reporters. “It’s gonna come back to hurt our team. The guys who jumped in to the scrum… I appreciate my team having my back but it should never get to that, it’s on me.”“He understands what he did. He understands what he did is totally unacceptable.” — Kitchens on Garrett— Cleveland Browns (@Browns) November 15, 2019When asked if the incident overshadowed Cleveland’s win, Garrett said: “A win is a win. I don’t think it’s overshadowed by what happens in eight seconds.” Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett said he made a mistake and regrets it after his ugly hit on Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph.Garrett, an NFL Pro Bowler in 2018, ripped off Rudolph’s helmet before swinging it and hitting the Steelers QB in the head late in Cleveland’s 21-7 victory over Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh’s Maurkice Pouncey then aimed kicks and punches at Garrett in shocking scenes in Cleveland on Thursday. Pittsburgh’s Rudolph also spoke to the media afterwards and he hit out at Garrett.”Not in my years. I thought it was cowardly and pretty bush league,” Rudolph said when asked if he had seen anything like that in football. “… I’m fine and good to go.”Pressed on whether Garrett should be suspended, Rudolph replied: “I don’t know what the rules are. I know it’s bush league and he is a total coward. … It’s OK, I’ll take it. I’m not going to back down from no bully. We will see what happens.”

Former Carolina Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis claimed in a statement Saturday that he did tell former team owner Peter Karmanos about Bill Peters’ alleged physical abuse of two players during a game.Francis, who served as GM in Carolina from 2014-18, wrote that he took immediate action to address the reported incident — which former NHLer Michal Jordan brought to light amid a debacle that led to Peters’ resignation as Calgary Flames head coach — and that nothing else occured between the players and Peters during his time with the club. MORE: How Calgary Flames reacted to Bill Peters’ resignationJordan, 29, wrote on Twitter that Peters once kicked him in the back during a game and punched a different Carolina skater in the head, an account that current Hurricanes head coach Rob Brind’Amour corroborated to the media on Nov. 27.”When I was general manager in Carolina, after a game, a group of players and hockey staff members made me aware of the physical incidents involving two players and Bill Peters,” Francis wrote in the statement. I took this matter very seriously.”I took immediate action to address the matter and briefed ownership …”Statement from Ron Francis: pic.twitter.com/2UVFGuOECH— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) November 30, 2019Karmanos, who sold majority ownership of the franchise to Tom Dundon in 2018, told the Seattle Times earlier this week he had no knowledge of the incident and that he would have fired Peters “in a nanosecond” if he had known. “I’m pretty upset,” Karmanos added, saying that Jordan opted to leave the Hurricanes organization for the KHL despite being offered a contract after the 2015-16 season. “And I have my calls in to Ronnie as well. I think he’s the one who’s going to have to tell people what he did when he found out that the coach had done these things.’’Both Peters and Francis left the Hurricanes organization within a matter of days in April 2018 as Dundon asserted control over the team. Francis is now the general manager of the NHL’s Seattle expansion team that begins play in the 2021-22 season. For that reason, the Hall of Famer said it would have been inappropriate to comment on Peters while another team — the Flames — conducted an investigation into Peters’ past conduct.The Athletic’s Sara Civian reported that she had been told Francis wanted to release a statement earlier this week but could not. Francis also said that he will not comment on the matter further.
