(93.7 The Fan) - An NFL Spokesperson tells reporters that the league looked into the allegations that Mason Rudolph used a racial slur against Myles Garrett before the Browns defensive end attacked the Steelers quarterback with his own helmet.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter says Brian McCarthy says they looked into the allegation “and found no such evidence.”

It was reported by Schefter earlier Thursday that Garrett claimed Rudolph called him a racial slur before at attack at the end of last Thursday’s game during his appeal hearing.

Rudolph denied the claims and a strongly-worded letter sent by his lawyer called it a “lie”.

Steelers defensive captain Cameron Heyward called the slur accusation “stupid’ and stands by Rudolph.

Garrett’s appeal was denied by the league and he is still suspended indefinitely.
