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.
Garrett will not need surgery on his high ankle sprain, Mary Kat Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
This is an encouraging sign for the rookie defensive end after he was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain Thursday morning. There's been no update on the potential recovery time for Garrett, who is expected to miss the first two games but who could return shortly therafter due to the fact he won't undergo surgery. In his absence, Emmanuel Ogbah and Carl Nassib will continue to operate as the only healthy 4-3 defensive ends on the roster, as Nate Orchard continues to work his way back from a groin injury.
Garrett had been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain, James Palmer of NFL Network reports.
Garrett suffered the ankle injury during Wednesday's practice, and the team later sent the No. 1 overall pick for an MRI. The results were far from favorable, as Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports Garrett will miss the first two weeks of the season before being reevaluated. It's not uncommon for high ankle sprains to carry a 4-to-6 week absence, though Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal suggests Garrett had a similar injury in his college career at Texas A&M, and only missed two games before playing through discomfort the rest of the way out. In the meantime, Nate Orchard (groin) continues to be a limited participant in practice, leaving Emmanuel Ogbah and Carl Nassib as the only truly healthy 4-3 defensive ends currently on the roster.
Garrett will undergo an MRI after injuring his right ankle during Wednesday's practice, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports.
It appears Garrett may have suffered a serious injury, as the Browns are fearful the No. 1 overall pick may miss not only Sunday's season opener versus the Steelers, but also multiple weeks after that. The Browns are banking on Garrett playing a major role as an edge rusher right away, so his potential absence would be a significant blow to the team's revamped defense.
