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.

Garrett was officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest, but there was never any real doubt about his availability for the Browns' first postseason game in 18 years. The star defensive end and game captain will work to make use of his game-wreaking abilities as a pass rusher against Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers.

While Garrett's officially listed as questionable, coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday that he's confident Garrett will be able to play, per Scott Petrak of The Chronicle-Telegram. The first overall pick in the 2017 draft is arguably the most important player on Cleveland's defense, as his 12 sacks this year marked his third straight campaign with a double-digit total in the category.
Garrett had four tackles, one sack, two quarterback hits and one pass defensed in Sunday's 23-16 loss to the Jets.
Garrett's recorded sacks in two straight games and has never gone more than one game without one. He's up to 12 sacks over 13 games.
Garrett admitted he's still feeling the effects of COVID-19 which caused him to miss two games, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Garrett said he continues breathing treatments over the days since his return two weeks ago against Tennessee. The edge rusher was visibly winded at times and played just 72 percent of the snaps (52 of 72) against the Titans before getting up to 90 percent (54 of 60) against the Ravens last week. "I'm not sure how long it's going to take for me to feel really 100 [percent] with my wind. I feel normal, it's just about trying not to gas out too early and trying to pace myself knowing it can jump on me rather quickly," said Garrett, who tallied half a sack against Baltimore on Monday and has 10.5 for the season.
Cleveland defensive coordinator Joe Woods expects Garrett to play more in Monday's game than he did last week, Nate Ulrich of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Garrett came off the reserve/COVID-19 list last week after missing two games and played 52 of 72 snaps (72 percent). Over the previous eight games in which the edge rusher has been available for the entire game, Garrett averaged 83 percent of the snaps. Woods expects to see normal usage in his second week back. "This week, he'll be in better shape. He'll have more practices under his belt and should be good to go," said Woods. Garrett is tied for third in the NFL with 10.5 sacks.
Garrett had two tackles and a sack in Sunday's 41-35 win over Tennessee.
Garrett returned from a two-week stay on the COVID-19 list, played 52 of 72 snaps, and didn't miss a beat. He now has 10.5 sacks, which ranks tied for third in the NFL, 1.5 sacks behind leader T.J. Watt.
Garrett returned to practice this week after being activated from the COVID-19 list and is expected to play Sunday against the Titans, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Garrett was activated Tuesday, then practiced Wednesday and Thursday, prompting optimism from head coach Kevin Stefanski. "He looked good to me. We're going to make sure that we're smart about how we get him back out there. But checking in with him, he looked really good," said the coach. Garrett, who missed two games due to the illness, is tied for third in the NFL with 9.5 sacks and tied for second with four forced fumbles.
Garrett was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday.
After missing the previous two games due to COVID-19, the star defensive end is expected to return Week 13. The 24-year-old was leading the league in sacks prior to his illness and will serve as a strong asset to the Browns defense as the team takes on the Titans' impressive offense.
Coach Kevin Stefanski said Monday that he expects Garrett (illness) to be activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list this week, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.
Garrett has missed the team's last two games while on the reserve list. This is an encouraging development, and his contributions to the pass rush would help cover some of the blemishes of playing without No. 1 cornerback Denzel Ward (calf). Garrett was enjoying a monster season prior to his hiatus, recording 31 tackles, 9.5 sacks, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries through nine games.
Coach Kevin Stefanski said Monday that Garrett (illness) won't return for the Week 12 matchup against Jacksonville, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Garrett will remain in the league's COVID-19 protocol through Week 12 because the protocol requires 10 days away from the team, and his first positive test appears to have been last Friday. The 24-year-old defensive end will eye a return Week 13 against the Titans. Porter Gustin is expected to start at defensive end until Garrett returns, but Adrian Clayborn should handle a considerable workload as well.
Garrett (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. He will miss Sunday's game against the Eagles.
The 24-year-old didn't practice Wednesday or Thursday due to what was believed to be a non-COVID-19-related illness, but the Browns announced Friday that he has since tested positive for the virus. No high-risk close contacts were identified since he was away from the facility this week. Garrett will be unavailable until he clears the league's COVID-19 protocols, but for now, the Browns aren't ruling him out beyond Sunday's game against the Eagles. Porter Gustin and Adrian Clayborn should see more reps at defensive end during Garrett's absence.
Garrett (illness) did not practice Thursday, Scott Petrak of the Cleveland Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Garrett has now missed two straight practices due to illness this week, but coach Kevin Stefanski has said that he's scheduled to return Friday, per Jake Trotter of ESPN.com. If Garrett is indeed able to retake the practice field prior to Sunday's game against the Eagles, it will bode well for his chances of suiting up.
Garrett (illness) is not practicing Wednesday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.
Garrett is not one of the three Browns on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which bodes well for his chances of playing Week 11. The star defensive end will look to resume practicing as Sunday's game against the Eagles looms closer.
Garrett had six tackles, half a sack and two tackles for losses in Sunday's 10-7 win over the Texans.
Garrett was coming off a Week 8 knee injury but looked in fine form Sunday after getting the bye week to recover. He once again had a key stop that helped swing the game to the Browns. In the second quarter, Garrett dropped Houston's Deshaun Watson on a quarterback draw for a two-yard loss on fourth down inside Cleveland's five-yard line. He's up to 9.5 sacks over nine games.
Cleveland head coach Kevin Stefanski said Garrett "should be good to go" Sunday against the Texans, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.
Garrett, who injured his knee and was removed from Week 8's game against the Raiders, has not been listed on the injury report at all this week as the Browns prepare for Week 10. He had also been dealing with wrist and ankle injuries prior to the Raiders game but looks ready to play Sunday.
Garrett (knee) returned to practice Monday, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Garrett sustained the knee injury in Week 8's loss to the Raiders, while also was dealing with wrist and ankle injuries. The expectation is that Garrett will suit up Week 10 at home against the Texans, who rank ninth in sacks allowed.
Coach Kevin Stefanski said Garrett (knee) has no structural issues after undergoing an MRI on Monday, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports.
Stefanski relayed after Sunday's loss to the Raiders that the 24-year-old was dealing with knee pain, but he should be able to play after the Browns' bye this week. Garrett entered the contest with an ankle issue and was limited to 46 percent of defensive snaps due to the injuries, but he'll now have some extra time to recover before the Week 10 matchup with Houston.
Coach Kevin Stefanski said that Garrett will have an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of a knee injury he suffered in the second quarter of Sunday's loss to the Raiders, Jake Trotter of ESPN.com reports.
Garrett battled an ankle injury during the practice week, but he appeared ready to handle his normal workload Sunday. Stefanski relayed that Garrett's knee injury was very painful but isn't related to his ankle injury. Although his snap count was limited following the injury, Garrett finished the game and contributed on clear passing downs. That bodes well for Garrett's availability following the Week 9 bye, but Monday's MRI will provide more detail on the nature of his injury.
