With defensive end Myles Garrett out with his indefinite suspension, the defensive line is missing its best player.
His suspension was upheld by appeals officer James Thrash and Ogunjobi will now sit out Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins.
Garrett's attack received immediate national attention on Thursday night, when the melee exploded with eight seconds left in Cleveland's 21-7 victory over Pittsburgh. Pouncey is now facing a three-game suspension while Garrett was hit with an indefinite suspension that would prohibit him from playing the rest of the season.
Garrett, who received an indefinite suspension that will last at least until the end of the regular season (and playoffs, if the Browns qualify), has chose to appeal the decision.
Myles Garrett looked composed and casual, a stark contrast to the last time he was seen in public.
That's when Garrett yanked off Rudolph's helmet, swinging it and connecting with the top of the QB's head.
Garrett's challenge of the penalty will include a claim that the NFL's collective-bargaining agreement does not allow for indefinite suspensions over on-field incidents, NFL Network reported, citing a source familiar with the matter. Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey was suspended three games for punching and kicking Garrett. As part of his punishment, the league said Garrett is required to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell's office before he can be reinstated.
In those 10 games, he's also had at least four passes, another record for Brown.
Ogunjobi and Pouncey had their appeals heard earlier this week by Thrash and Derrick Brooks, a Pro Football Hall of Famer. Rudolph grabbed Garrett's facemask and unsuccessfully tried to pry off his helmet.
Garrett leaves an office building in NY on Wednesday, where he's appealing his indefinite suspension for hitting Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph with a helmet.
When Rudolph turned away to protest to officials, Ogunjobi shoved him from behind, sending him sprawling.
"I am not going to make this into something bigger than it was, " he said. "I lost my cool and what I did was selfish and unacceptable".
"There's no excuse for that to happen on a football field", Kitchens said. "Bad happens in this world and people can take this moment - it could ruin them - people could take this moment, man up for their actions and keep going".
