Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett appeared to scare Pittsburgh Steelers players on Sunday when he ended up with a black and gold helmet in his hands after a play.
As the Steelers tried to get a first down, Garrett took off on a run. When he got back up, Garrett noticed the Steelers helmet on the ground. Steelers offensive lineman Broderick Jones quickly jumped toward the star defensive lineman to retrieve the helmet.

Garrett raised his hands as if to say he wasn’t going to throw it anywhere. He slapped Jones on the back of his helmet in the jovial moment. The Browns player spoke with Pro Football Talk about it. Jones reportedly joked, “If someone shouldn’t have that helmet, you shouldn’t.”

Steelers players are apparently a bit scarred by Garrett’s helmet-swinging incident during the 2019 season. The incident occurred in the fourth quarter of the game between the two teams. Mason Rudolph dropped back to pass when Garrett tackled him. Garrett took off Rudolph’s helmet and waved it wildly. A skirmish ensued and punches were thrown.
The NFL suspended Garrett indefinitely for the incident, which cost him the remainder of the regular season. He alleged at the time that Rudolph directed a racial slur at him, but the NFL found no evidence to support the claim. Garrett was reinstated in 2020.
