Will Myles Garrett's appeal strategy, citing a past precedent, work?

Will Myles Garrett's appeal strategy, citing a past precedent, work?The incident was the talk of the sporting world and everyone saw it multiple times. The easiest punishment was simple math: The Cleveland Browns had six games left and that seemed to fit. The NFL suspended him indefinitely, for at least the rest of the regular season and postseason. It seemed very likely it would end up being a six-game suspension.

The Cleveland Browns made an unexpected roster cut on Tuesday morning, and it comes from a position where they lack depth, thanks to the indefinite suspension of Myles Garrett.

Per Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, the team has released defensive end Chris Smith just a few days after he was a healthy scratch for Sunday's 20-13 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

As of this writing, there has been no follow-up word on a corresponding move by the Browns to add a player to their 53-man roster.

Smith appeared in name games as a rotational piece for Cleveland in 2019, during which he tallied just one tackle and one pass defended.

Perhaps that lack of production is the product of the tragedy that Smith endured early on in the season. Back in September, his girlfriend and the mother of his child, Petara Cordero, was killed in a car accident.

The former fifth-round pick out of Arkansas back in 2014 admirably opted to honor her and play that following week against the Jets, but he just hasn't been able to muster consistent production since the tragedy.

For his career (60 games), Smith has amassed 46 tackles, 8.5 sacks, and three forced fumbles while bouncing around with the likes of the Jaguars and Bengals before coming to Cleveland in 2018.

Baker Mayfield limited in practice with his bruised hand; Greg Robinson cleared from concussion protocol .
BEREA, Ohio -- Baker Mayfield didn’t attempt a pass in the early portion of practice open to the media on Wednesday while his counterparts, Garrett Gilbert and practice squad QB Eric Dungey threw in position drills. Mayfield, who bruised the hand late in the first half of Sunday’s 20-13 loss to the Steelers, wore a wrap on the hand with his fingers exposed. He handed off once during the session, but didn’t throw. Coach Freddie Kitchens said in his press conference before practice Mayfield "should not be'' limited, but that proved not to be the case.
