Browns' Myles Garrett has sprained left foot, should be ready for camp

Browns' Myles Garrett has sprained left foot, should be ready for camp

That is time-weeks, perhaps-in which Garrett's physical conditioning is going to degrade, and that will show by the time he hits training camp, assuming that he is ready to resume practicing by that point.

The top pick in this year's NFL Draft could be slowed down for the remainder of the summer, if not longer. He was spotted at Cleveland Hopkins Airport on June 16 wearing a walking boot on his left foot.

For his sake and for the sake of a fan base that is in desperate need for some positive momentum, I hope that Garrett's foot injury doesn't prevent him from entering training camp in the proper condition that will allow him to hit the ground running as he begins his career.

It's good news for the Browns, who were concerned when Garrett went down without any contact while rushing quarterback Brock Osweiler during a two-minute drill.

He also suffered a left high ankle sprain last season at Texas A&M that hampered him all season and limited him to 8 1/2 sacks. "I don't know that for sure but we'll find out as I go inside".

"That's part of the game", said Browns head coach Hue Jackson. The defensive lineman suffered a badly sprained ankle back in September that left him at just "75 percent" for his final college season. "It's part of the process and you know he's going to bounce back". That's the nature of the game.

Njoku was the team's 3rd player selected in the draft, their third of three picks in the first round, and their only tight end selected. He's still smiling, he's still feeling good. "You've got to be even keel and just take it one day at a time". You can't really be up and down.

"Myles is everything we expected", defensive line coach Clyde Simmons said. The deal includes a $20.25 million signing bonus and a fifth-year club option.

Garrett remained on the sideline, most of the time in a kneeling position, until lightning forced Jackson to order practice be concluded in the fieldhouse. You just see a guy who knows what he wants to do and how he wants to do it.
