Garrett was released from the hospital on Monday night with no broken bones but very little else was known at the time.
While Garrett’s health and safety were the primary concern, how the Browns defense would look without him lingered with Sunday’s game with the Atlanta Falcons a few days away.
Tom Pelisserro of the NFL Network released a report of minor injuries for Garrett which was shortly followed by this statement from the team:
Given the importance of Garrett to the defense, and the tough schedule after the Falcons, it is possible Cleveland will play it safe less than a week after his accident.
We will keep you up to date with the team’s injury reports. The first comes out on Wednesday with the final determination of Garrett’s game status potentially not coming until 90 minutes before kickoff when the inactive list comes out.
