Myles Garrett wearing a walking boot, but Browns mum on severity of injury
The top pick in the draft was injured during Wednesday's practice
Thanks to an eagle-eyed fan at the Cleveland airport, we now know that Garrett is wearing a walking boot on the same left foot that he injured during practice.
According to Cleveland.com, Garrett has been in the boot since suffering the injury. Garrett was supposed to be with his fellow rookies on Friday to attend a youth clinic at FirstEnergy Stadium, but he was excused from the event due to his foot injury.
Although his fellow teammates didn't offer any details on the severity of Garrett's injury, rookie defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi did say that it was horrible seeing his friend go down with an injury.
"It sucks, especially when he's one of your good friends,'' Ogunjobi said, via Cleveland.com. "I've known Myles for just a short period of time, but we've connected and you know how good of a person he is because he's humble and he's hungry and really wants to be great. So you know it sucks, but it's part of the game. It's part of the process and you know he's going to bounce back."
Garrett's injury came on the same leg that gave him issues during his final season at Texas A&M. The defensive lineman suffered a badly sprained back in September that left him at just "75 percent" for the college season.
Browns coach Hue Jackson said the team would know more about Garrett's injury on Wednesday night; however, at this point he's decided not to share any of those details with anyone outside the organization.
The only update on Garrett so far has come from NFL.com. According to the league's official website, Garrett is "fine" and should be ready to go when the Browns kick off training camp in six weeks. If Garrett is fine, then the boot is likely just a precautionary measure.
On the other hand, the Browns could be mum because the injury is worse than they thought. Either way, the team likely won't talk about Garrett's injury until training camp, which means we could be waiting six weeks until we get an official update on the health of the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft.
