Browns’ Garrett (knee) not expected to miss games
Cleveland defensive end Myles Garrett, who played most of the Browns’ Sunday game hampered by a sore knee, does not have any structural damage to the joint, coach Kevin Stefanski announced Monday.
Garrett should be ready for the Browns’ home game against the Houston Texans on Nov. 15. The Browns, who fell to 5-3 with a 16-6 home loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday, have a bye this week.
An MRI on Monday showed no damage to Garrett’s knee, according to Stefanski.
“It’s obvious how much of an impact he makes in these games … we dodged a bullet,” Stefanski said. “We just need him to come back Wednesday and see if he’s ready to practice. If he’s not, we’ll have a few days to rest and get ready to roll next week.”
Garrett, whose nine sacks leave him tied with the Los Angeles Rams’ Aaron Donald for the league lead, said he hurt the knee in the second quarter. He left the game briefly, then returned but was not on field for all of the Browns’ defensive snaps.
The top pick in the 2017 draft, Garrett has four forced fumbles this season, also tied for first in the NFL.
