Garrett (ankle) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Colts.
While the Browns are holding out hope Garrett will be able to play Sunday, we'd be surprised if he isn't ruled out eventually. After all, he's only 16 days removed from suffering a high ankle sprain. Look for Carl Nassib and Nate Orchard to see added snaps at defensive end if Garrett can't go.
It seemed a foregone conclusion that Garrett would be sidelined for the first quarter of his rookie season after suffering a right high-ankle sprain in a Sept. 6 practice, but the defensive end has healed far quicker than the organization could have anticipated. Though he didn't participate in practice Wednesday, Garrett wasn't completely idle, as he shed his walking boot and did some cardio work on a stationary bicycle. Unless he's able to get back on the field in some capacity Thursday or Friday, Garrett will trend closer to doubtful than questionable for Week 3, but the fact the Browns aren't yet ruling him out to play is an encouraging sign regarding his health.
Garrett (ankle) was spotted walking in the locker room without a boot Wednesday, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
This should be seen as progress, but Garrett still didn't practice Wednesday. There's still a possibility that he'll be able to suit up Sunday against the Colts, but the rookie defensive end will need to log some practice time before that's an option.
Garrett (ankle) is progressing in his recovery and could potentially work in practice this week.
Garrett is only 12 days removed from suffering the high ankle sprain, but the Browns remained reluctant to ever say he would miss Week 3. Head coach Hue Jackson indicated that he hopes the 2017 first overall pick can get some practice work in this week, but Garrett was seen in a walking boot while in the locker room Monday.
Garrett (ankle) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Steelers.
This was fully expected after Garrett suffered a high-ankle sprain on Wednesday. The 2017 first overall pick will thankfully not require surgery, but he will at least miss the first two games of the season. Defensive end Nate Orchard (groin) practiced fully Friday and will likely be expected to step up in his absence.
