Browns DE Myles Garrett injury update on Monday

Positive news for the Browns best defender

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The loss to the Denver Broncos was not the Cleveland Browns biggest concern in Week 12. Instead, injuries continued to be the biggest storyline for a team that has been hammered with them all year long.

The biggest concern was for DE Myles Garrett who struggled to put a shirt on, said he heard a pop in his shoulder and had his left arm in a sling following the game.

On top of Garrett, WR Amari Cooper left the game with a rib injury, QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson was unable to finish with a concussion and DT Jordan Elliott was knocked out of the contest with an ankle injury.

Browns fans can breathe a small sigh of relief as HC Kevin Stefanski informed reporters today that Garrett was day to day:

While Stefanski seems positive, Cleveland fans recall that he said similar things about QB Deshaun Watson early in the season when his initial shoulder injury happened. Watson missed a couple of games and then a new injury to the same shoulder knocked him out for the season.

Garrett has helped the Browns defense be among the best in the league all year while stuffing the stat sheet with 13 sacks, 23 QB hits, 12 tackles for loss, four forced fumbles, three passes deflected and one fumble recovery.

Cleveland is practicing out in California this week. Given the timezone differences, we will likely have to wait until late Wednesday afternoon to find out Garrett’s practice status to start the week. Generally, the hulking defensive end rests the first day, is limited the second before being full go by Friday. Given the shoulder injury, Friday could be the first day he sees the field this week.

Are you relieved by this report on Garrett or still have major concerns about his shoulder?
