It’s been made clear via Ian Rapport that DE Myles Garrett is actually going to be fine when it appeared otherwise after Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos. Here’s a quote from the reporter on Twitter (X).
“Pro Bowl DE Myles Garrett, who left Sunday’s game with his shoulder in a sling, checked out OK today, sources say. He was described as sore, but day-to-day.”
Yes! This great news means that the Browns will still have their elite pass rusher in the coming weeks out on the field and won’t lose him as originally thought. Garrett described feeling a pop in his shoulder on Sunday and that sounded like very bad news was ahead for the team that’s already experienced a plethora of injuries.
This 6’4, 274-pounder has 13 sacks on the season (tied for second in the league) and 24 tackles in total. He is a force within the pass rush throughout the entire game. Garrett has 87.5 sacks in his career.
While this news may not save the season necessarily, it’ll help the Browns overall with pressuring other quarterbacks. Now, say Garrett isn’t able to go it’ll be Ogbo Okoronkwo and Isaiah McGuire as the backup ends on the depth chart.
Let’s hope that there is no injury that causes any disturbances in the future. It’s nice for the Browns to finally get some news that’s good moving forward.
Garrett will be on the field against the LA Rams in a road matchup on Sunday. The 7-4 Browns look to make up for a 29-12 loss to the Broncos this past week.
Note how many more sacks throughout the season Garrett has as he already holds the aforementioned 13 on the year. One of the greatest to play the position, that’s for sure. Best of luck Myles and continue to stay on the field and healthy!
UPDATE: Browns WR Amari Cooper (ribs) had negative X-rays and is expected to be OK, per HC Kevin Stefanski.
