After being suspended indefinitely in November, the NFL has reinstated Cleveland Browns defensive end, Myles Garrett, Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot reports.

The announcement comes after he met with NFL commissioner, Roger Goodell, and other league representatives on Monday. 

"We welcome Myles back to our organization with open arms," Browns General Manager, Andrew Berry, said in a statement. "We know he is grateful to be reinstated, eager to put the past behind him and continue to evolve and grow as a leader. We look forward to having his strong positive presence back as a teammate, player and person in our community." 

Garrett was suspended following a violent altercation with Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, Mason Rudolph. During the final seconds of the fourth quarter of a November game, Garrett ripped off Rudolph's helmet and struck him with it. After being suspended, Garrett went on record claiming that the fight was sparked by Rudolph calling him a racial slur

Garrett missed the remaining six games of the season, which cost him over a million dollars in lost game checks. He was also fined $45,623 by the NFL for the incident. Rudolph wasn't suspended, but he was hit with a $50,000 fine for his role in the altercation.

Garrett is now free to participate in upcoming team activities, but before he does, he plans on continuing his humanitarian efforts as the captain of the NFL's Waterboys program.
