The NFL has handed down it's punishment to Browns and Steelers players involved in a heinous fight on Thursday night.

The Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns have each been fined $250,000.

Also, 3 players, including Cleveland's Myles Garrett and Larry Ogunjobi, and Pittsburgh's Maurkice Pouncey - have been suspended without pay for their actions in Thursday night's game. 

Garrett has been suspended without pay indefinitely -at a minimum for the remainder of the regular season and post season. He must also meet with the NFL Commissioner's office prior to a decision on his reinstatement.

He was also fined an additional amount.

Garrett violated unnecessary roughness and unsportsmanlike conduct rules, as well as fighting, removing the helmet of an opponent and using the helmet as a weapon.

Pouncey has been suspended without pay for three games and fined an additional amount for fighting, including punching and kicking an opponent.  

Ogunjobi has been suspended without pay for one game and fined an additional amount for unnecessary roughness, specifically for shoving an opposing player to the ground during an altercation. 

Additional discipline for other players will be forthcoming through the standard accountability process, including those players that left the bench to enter the fight area.
