The NFL has handed out a slew of fines and punishments for the players involved in the Week 11 game between the Steelers and Browns. On Saturday, CBS Sports NFL insider Jason La Canfora reported that 33 players have been disciplined for their actions during the waning seconds of Cleveland’s 21-7 victory over Baltimore. Both teams were fined a total of $732,422 that includes each team being fined $250,000, per multiple reports.

Myles Garrett, who struck Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head with Rudolph’s own helmet, has been suspended indefinitely by the league. Garrett lost his appeal earlier this week after stating that his actions were caused by Rudolph calling him a racial slur. Rudolph, who has been fined $50,000 for his role in the fight, has vehemently denied the allegation. The NFL has also stated that they found no evidence supporting Garrett’s accusation. 

Earlier this week, the NFL decided to uphold Cleveland defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi’s one-game suspension for shoving a helmet-less Rudolph following his altercation with Garrett. The league also decided to reduce Pittsburgh center Maurkice Pouncey’s suspension from three to two games. Pouncey engaged in physical contact with Garrett following Garrett’s altercation with Rudolph. 

Twenty-nine players, a list of that includes Pittsburgh’s Bud Dupree, Terrell Edmunds, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Ramon Foster, and Cleveland’s Mack Wilson and Jarvis Landry, were fined $3,507 for “entering (the) fighting area.” That list did not include Steelers guard David DeCastro, who helped separate Garrett and Rudolph from each other.
