WATCH: Steelers’ Maurkice Pouncey: Fight with Myles Garret ‘was worth it’

Maurkice Pouncey is back from his two-game suspension following the Browns-Steelers melee from Week 11 when Cleveland defensive end Myles Garrett ripped off the helmet of Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and then hit him with it.

Pouncey was originally suspended three games for punching Garrett in the helmet and then kicking him, but the NFL reduced his suspension to two games after an appeal.

Even then, the Steelers’ center doesn’t regret it. Pouncey said to PennLive.com’s Jacob Klinger: “The NFL had to make a statement, and rightfully so. At the end of the day, the fight didn’t look good, but the fight was worth it.”

Between two missed game checks and a $35,096 fine, Pouncey lost out on approximately $150,000.
