Myles Garrett will be ready for Browns training camp after mild foot sprain

New, comments

Overall, the news is positive when it comes to the Browns’ first overall pick.

The diagnosis on Myles Garrett’s foot injury is in. On Saturday, the Cleveland Browns released the following statement:

“After being evaluated by Browns Head Team Physician, Dr. James Voos of University Hospitals and foot and ankle specialist Dr. Robert Anderson of OrthoCarolina, Myles Garrett has been diagnosed with a lateral foot sprain. He is expected to be ready for training camp.”

Garrett suffered the injury during minicamp this past week, and it was believed that a foot injury may have also caused him to miss some time during OTAs. However, the injuries are not related, per what a source tells Mary Kay Cabot of the Plain Dealer. But now, Garrett will have over a month to let his foot get better in time for training camp. No surgery will be required, but that doesn’t mean Garrett will be 100 percent, as Cabot explains through talking to an independent foot an ankle surgeon who has not examined Garrett:

A patient with Garrett's diagnosis can expect to be about 80% in about four to six weeks, and fully recovered within three months, depending on the severity of the partial or complete tear of the soft tissue in the foot.
