The NFL has finally made its decision.

As fans followed closely, Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was suspended indefinitely after an incident against the Pittsburgh Steelers in which he ripped the helmet off of quarterback Mason Rudolph, used it as a weapon, and managed to make contact with Rudolph's exposed head.

Now, Garrett has been allowed to return to football, as the NFL has reinstated the star pass-rusher. Garrett is expected to be ready for Week 1 of the 2020 season as Kevin Stefanski takes charge of things in Cleveland.

Garrett, a former No. 1 overall pick who made a Pro Bowl in 2018, was dominating in 2019 before his suspension, as he piled up 10 sacks in 10 games for new defensive coordinator Steve Wilks.

Garrett appears to have shown enough contrition and regret for the league to decide six games was enough of a suspension for him.

Browns GM Andrew Berry is thrilled that Garrett is ready to play football once again, as he claims the Browns "welcome Myles back to our organization with open arms."

It goes without saying, but Garrett is a major piece of the puzzle for the Browns moving forward. With him back in the fold, the team will look to put a disappointing 2019 behind them as they hope to make it back to the postseason next campaign.
