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.

Browns DE Garrett to have MRI on knee

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett will undergo an MRI after sustaining a knee injury during Sunday’s 16-6 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders.

Garrett was limited all week in practice with an ankle injury, but was able to start Saturday before injuring his knee early in the game and seeing his snaps reduced.

“It was unrelated to the ankle from this week,” Cleveland coach Kevin Stefanski said. “He was able to play, probably didn’t play as much as he would have liked, we would have liked. … We’ll let the medical staff guide us on that one.”

The Browns (5-3) enter their bye week before returning to action against the visiting Houston Texans on Nov. 15.

Garrett, 24, signed a five-year, $125-million extension in the summer, and entered Sunday’s action with an NFL-leading nine sacks in seven games. He was held without one for the first time since Cleveland’s 38-6 season-opening loss to Baltimore on Sept. 13.

Since being selected by the Browns with the top overall pick of the 2017 NFL Draft, Garrett has recorded 39.5 sacks.
