Myles Garrett (foot) is "ready to go" for the start of training camp.
The No. 1 overall pick had a scare toward the end of spring workouts when he suffered a lateral foot sprain, but it proved to be a minor deal. Garrett will probably be monitored a bit early in camp but will avoid a stint on the active/PUP list. Jul 26 - 11:56 AM

Myles Garrett said his injured foot is "doing alright."

When a fan on Twitter asked him about his lateral foot sprain, Garrett shared a video of himself doing leg presses at the gym. Garrett was seen sporting a walking boot at the conclusion of OTAs last month but seems to be healing nicely. The Browns are likely to limit his workload early in camp but Garrett should be a full-go well in advance of Week 1.
Jul 7 - 3:11 PM

Browns first-round DE Myles Garrett has been diagnosed with a lateral foot sprain.

It's good news after Garrett got a second opinion from Dr. Robert Anderson. Garrett is in a walking boot, but he shouldn't need more than six weeks to recover. The Browns expect Garrett to be ready for training camp.

Myles Garrett has been wearing a walking boot on his injured left foot.

Garrett was spotted in a walking boot Friday at Cleveland Hopkins Airport and has reportedly been wearing it since injuring his foot on the second day of mandatory minicamp. It's hard to speculate on his availability for training camp until the Browns update his status. Garrett has a history of foot issues dating back to his college days at Texas A&M.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the belief is Browns first-round DE Myles Garrett (foot) is "fine."

The Browns provided a non-update on Thursday, but the spokesperson did say the fact Garrett was able to walk off the field on his own was a good sign. It would still be good to get some confirmation from the team, but for now it seems like Garrett avoided a serious injury to a foot which also bothered him in college.
Jun 15 - 1:04 PM

A Browns spokesperson said No. 1 overall DE Myles Garrett's left foot injury is still being evaluated.

It is as much of a non-update as an update can be. According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot, the spokesperson did say the team views it as a positive Garrett was able to walk off the field on his own, although he reportedly had quite a limp. Garrett dealt with issues to the same foot in college.

The Associated Press' Tom Withers reports No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett will undergo "numerous tests" after re-injuring his left foot/ankle at Wednesday's minicamp practice.

It's the same ankle/foot that slowed Garrett as a college junior. The injury limited him at OTAs and was aggravated on Wednesday. "His reaction made me think it could be significant," Withers said of Garrett's injury. The aggravation occurred on a non-contact play, forcing Garrett to limp off the field.

Browns DE Myles Garrett suffered a foot injury at minicamp.

Garrett was limping on the sideline at the end of practice. Coach Hue Jackson said he doesn't think it's serious. Garrett battled an ankle injury his final year at Texas A&M.
Jun 14 - 5:20 PM

Browns signed No. 1 overall pick DE Myles Garrett to a four-year, $30.4 million contract.

The deal is fully guaranteed and comes with a standard fifth-year team option. It also includes a $20.25 million signing bonus. The surefire top player in this year's draft, the Browns made an easy call by taking Garrett No. 1 despite heavy rumors they were considering Mitchell Trubisky. Garrett is a game-wrecker off the edge, and new DC Gregg Williams has developed defensive linemen really well.

Browns selected Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft.

Sanity prevails as Cleveland selects the best player in the draft rather than reaching for one of this year's low-probability quarterback projects. Garrett (6’5/272) arrived in College Station as a top-two high school recruit and spent his full three-year career as the Aggies’ best player, amassing 48.5 tackles for loss, 32.5 sacks, and seven forced fumbles. Garrett ruined SEC offensive schemes with a fierce bull rush, lightning-quick inside spin move, and incredible burst off the snap. He also received strong run-defense grades from PFF College. A complete edge defender with basketball-player athleticism, Garrett crushed the vertical (41"), broad jump (10’8"), bench (33), forty (4.64), and Wonderlic (31) at the Combine. After dominating college football at its highest level, Garrett should be a long-term difference maker for the Browns at one of the highest-value positions in the sport.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns will select Texas A&M EDGE Myles Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick.

Even the Browns can't screw this one up. Cabot's report comes via "multiple league sources." While the smoke around Mitchell Trubisky possibly leaping Garrett and becoming the Browns' preferred choice at No. 1 has been heavy, Cabot reports the Browns have been "working the phones" trying to trade up from No. 12 in order to come away with both Garrett and Trubisky on Thursday.
Apr 27 - 4:31 PM

The Cleveland Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett "is still the likely pick for the Browns at No. 1."

Cabot says the Browns are still attempting "to trade up into the top eight," suggesting they will take Garrett at No. 1 and hope to land UNC QB Mitchell Trubisky later in the draft. ESPN's Jeff Darlington adds the 49ers, who pick behind Cleveland, are "skeptical about Trubisky going to the Browns." With the draft finally here, we will know for sure soon enough.
Apr 27 - 10:47 AM

Appearing on the Dan Patrick Show Tuesday, NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah said, "I haven't talked to one personnel guy that has an issue with Myles Garrett and his effort."

This topic has gotten recent media attention, likely in a plot from a team trying to somehow scare the Browns off Garrett at No. 1 overall. Ex-NFL Network "talent" Warren Sapp added fuel to it by calling out Garrett for being "lazy". ESPN's Todd McShay ripped Sapp's evaluation on Tuesday, and some have questioned if Sapp has ever even seen Garrett play a snap. We doubt it.
Apr 25 - 10:58 PM

11-of-16 NFL scouts polled by the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel voted Texas A&M DE Myles Garrett the 2017 draft's top player.

LSU S Jamal Adams (2), Alabama LB Reuben Foster (1), Stanford DL Solomon Thomas (1), and Oklahoma RB Joe Mixon (1) split the remaining votes. When the scouts voted on the top pass rusher in the draft, Garrett again led the way with 12-of-16 mentions, while Alabama OLB Tim Williams drew two and aforementioned Thomas got the final two. We continue to not buy pre-draft reports that the Browns are considering taking Mitchell Trubisky over Garrett at No. 1 overall.
Apr 23 - 5:39 PM

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora "continues to hear" that coach Hue Jackson and his staff is "all in" on Myles Garrett at No. 1, but the front office and owner Jimmy Haslam is leaning more toward Mitchell Trubisky.

The "owner badly wants a QB," according to La Canfora. Haslam was said to be the one who banged the table for Johnny Manziel a couple years back, and that obviously backfired terribly. Maybe Haslam should consider refraining from meddling in personnel decisions and try and let his staff turn around this franchise. However, it sounds like the front office is also in his corner on this one, wanting a potential franchise passer. Garrett is a legitimate game-changer, and the "football guys," as in the coaching staff, know it. EVP Sashi Brown spoke earlier this week and hinted the pick will either be Garrett or Trubisky.
