The NFL reinstated Myles Garrett from his indefinite suspension early this week and his first order of business was to sit down with ESPN for his first interview since he was suspended for hitting Mason Rudolph in the head with his own helmet.

Garrett, who days after the incident claimed Rudolph used a racial slur against him, told Mina Kimes during the interview for “Outside the Lines” that Rudolph called him a “stupid n-word.”  He also claims the NFL is covering up the on field audio from that play.

Despite his claims, Garrett said he didn’t want to make the incident about race.  The full interview will air on Saturday morning on ESPN.
