However the Cleveland Browns Professional Bowl defensive finish mentioned Friday he hasn’t considered whether or not he’ll way Rudolph all the way through warmups as the 2 face each and every different for the primary time since Nov. 14, when Garrett hit the quarterback over the top along with his personal helmet within the waning seconds of a Browns house victory.

“Haven’t considered it. Eager about how I’m going to get to Ben,” Garrett mentioned about  Steelers beginning quarterback Ben Roethlisberger all the way through a Zoom name. “I’ll go that bridge after I come to it, whether or not that’s down the street or on every occasion we see each and every different.

“It will probably certainly energize the lovers right here and the franchise, seeing they’re a staff that’s ranked forward folks within the AFC and in maximum ratings,” Garrett mentioned. “If we get a win there, the general public would give us some recognize this 12 months as a official staff around the league. From then on, we need to end up it week in and week out. It doesn’t prevent there.”
