Garrett posted four tackles (three solo) and a sack in Sunday's 33-29 loss to the Chiefs. Garrett sacked Patrick Mahomes on third down late in the fourth quarter, forcing the Chiefs to punt with a four-point lead and just 2:59 remaining. The Browns squandered the opportunity, as quarterback Baker Mayfield threw an interception just five plays later. Nevertheless, it was a strong start for Garrett, who's aiming for his fourth straight season with double-digit sacks.
Garrett (hamstring) isn't listed on the Browns' injury report released Wednesday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Garrett sustained a hamstring injury in early August, but the Browns never appeared to view it as more than a day-to-day concern. With the star defensive end opening Week 1 prep with a full practice, he shouldn't face any limitations with his reps heading into Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Garrett will be taking aim at his fourth straight double-digit sack campaign in 2021.
Coach Kevin Stefanski said Monday that Garrett (hamstring) will not practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. Stefanski described Garrett as day-to-day. Hamstring injuries can be tricky, so the Browns will likely take a cautious approach to Garrett's recovery, but it doesn't appear that there's any real reason to worry about his status for Week 1. However, Garrett could end up missing whatever action Cleveland's starters handle during August 14's preseason game against the Jaguars.
The oblique injury Garrett sustained during the playoffs shouldn't affect his offseason routine, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Garrett suffered the injury during Sunday's 22-17 loss to Kansas City in the divisional round. He finished with 12 sacks in 14-regular season games and one more in two postseason appearances, earning his second Pro Bowl nod through four NFL seasons. Garrett is signed with the Browns through 2026, and he should enter 2021 as one of the Defensive Player of the Year favorites.
Coach Kevin Stefanski said Garrett suffered an oblique injury during Sunday's 22-17 divisional-round loss to the Chiefs, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Garrett picked up his oblique injury in the second half and toughed it out through much of Sunday's contest, ending the day with two solo tackles, one sack and two quarterback hits. At this time, there's no reason to believe that the star defensive end is in any danger of missing the start of offseason workouts or being limited. He notched 48 tackles (33 solo), 12 sacks, two defended passes, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries during 14 regular-season games in 2020.
