The top overall pick in this years draft got hurt in practice on Wednesday, while the Browns were having their first full practice in preparation for Sundays season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Cleveland Plain Dealer reported that Garrett suffered the injury after a teammate stepped on the side of his right ankle. However, over the last two seasons, he has struggled due to injuries, only playing 18 out of a possible 32 games.
The Pittsburgh Steelers directly benefited from infighting by the Cleveland Browns, signing Joe Haden to bolster their secondary after he was released by their AFC North rivals. "I've been feeling like this since the beginning of training camp". He missed time during his final year at Texas A&M with a left ankle sprain. The Browns' brief statement said an update on Garrett's status and progress will be provided "in a couple weeks". Ben Roethlisberger returns and the Steelers should have no problems moving the football against the Browns.
It's the second year in a row that the Browns lost their highest draft pick to injury.
The Steelers could end the game early if they get in the head of rookie Deshone Kizer.
If Garrett can not play against Pittsburgh, Carl Nassib figures to be the next man up, with Nate Orchard taking his spot as the third end in the rotation. "I think he understands where he is and he knows he's going to get back out there, so he'll be fine".More news: See The Face Of Serena Williams Newborn Daughter
Tomlin said he's comfortable going with rookie third-round pick James Conner if Bell is limited in Cleveland. The Kansas City Chiefs showed their offense is one of the best, which means Pittsburgh needs to now prepare for even more threats in the AFC. "As long as I do that the coaches, the play, everything is going to go along wth it".
Garrett hopes to begin his season by getting his hands on Roethlisberger, who is 20-2 in his career against the Browns. Pittsburgh's offense averaged 24.9 points during the regular season.
Now we know how they all got here, it remains to be seen if this blend of talent and backgrounds can do something the Steelers have failed to do since 2008. "We will play this thing out as we go, and if there is a chance where Cody fits better, then Cody will be the backup".
"My bold prediction, I really feel like Myles can make the Pro Bowl his rookie year". "It wasn't intentional and those things happen", Jackson says. Those dreams of Garrett planting Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will have to wait until Week 17.
"Just make sure you don't hit him up high", Garrett said.
