CLEVELAND (AP) Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett is asking the NFL to decrease his indefinite suspension.

Garrett was banned last week for the rest of the regular season and playoffs for striking Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph with a helmet. Garrett is appealing the decision and his case is being heard Wednesday in New York by a league-appointed officer who will either lessen the penalty or put a definitive number of games on it.

Garrett tore off Rudolph's helmet with eight seconds left in Thursday's game, swung it and connected with the QB's head. Rudolph avoided injury and was not suspended despite trying to pull off Garrett's helmet and charging at him.
