Browns #1 Draft Pick Myles Garrett May Be Out “Weeks” with Ankle Injury, Because Cleveland
Pretty much every football expert in America thinks the Cleveland Browns actually did something right for once when they used the number one pick in the 2017 NFL Draft to take Texas A&M defensive end Myles Garrett.
Unfortunately, while the Browns front office may have gotten smarter, the franchise still has terrible luck. On Wednesday Garrett suffered an ankle injury during practice, and a team source told Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com that it could sideline their defensive cornerstone for weeks.
Of course, head coach Hue Jackson refused to speculate on record when reporters asked about Myles’ availability for Week 1.
“We will see. I don’t want to make medical decisions,” Jackson said. “I am not very good at them so we will see where we are as we move through the week.”
Garrett is expected to have an MRI on Thursday. We should know by Friday how severe the injury is. If it’s as bad as Cabot’s team source fears, it’ll come as a huge kick in the gut to Browns fans. Though they are under no delusions that their team would actually be good this year, Myles Garrett is expected to give them something to cheer about—a sack here, a forced fumble there. If he misses, say, the first three weeks, what do Browns fans have? DeShone Kizer?
At least basketball season isn’t that far away.
