HOUSTON – Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett could be facing a league suspension for his outburst Thursday night when he ripped off Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph's helmet and clubbed him on the head during the final seconds of Cleveland's 21-7 win, but it's happened before, most recently by a Texans player. 

In a 2013 preseason game, Texans defensive end Antonio Smith tore off Miami Dolphins' guard Richie Incognito's helmet and swung it at him, barely missing Incognito's head. The referee did not call the offense, but Smith was later suspended for three games.
