Myles Garrett sets Browns’ sack record, aggravates shoulder injury

Defensive end Myles Garrett became the Cleveland Browns’ all-time sack leader on Sunday, but he also aggravated a left shoulder injury and left during the fourth quarter of their blowout loss to the visiting New England Patriots.

In the first quarter, Garrett sacked Patriots quarterback Bailey Zappe to break Clay Matthews’ record and reach 62.5 sacks for his career.

He picked up his second sack and reached 63.5 for his career with another sack in the fourth quarter. But stayed down on the field and needed to be helped off the field by trainers.

Garrett was on the injury report all week after sustaining arm, shoulder and hand injuries in a car accident last month. He confirmed after the game that he’d aggravated the shoulder he sprained in the accident, but promised it wouldn’t sideline him for long.

“I was playing today and I’ll be playing next week,” Garrett said.

Led by their rookie third-string quarterback, the Patriots ran roughshod over the Browns’ defense in a 38-15 win. Garrett wanted to downplay his record and said he had to do more to help the unit.

“It comes in a loss,” Garrett said of the record. “It’s nice to be recognized and honored, but at the end of the day winners are remembered. And we’re not winning.”

Browns’ Myles Garrett, Jadeveon Clowney questionable vs. Falcons

Cleveland Browns defensive ends Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney are considered questionable to play in Sunday’s game against the Falcons in Atlanta, coach Kevin Stefanski said Friday.

Garrett, 26, sustained a shoulder injury among other bumps and bruises following a car accident on Monday.

“The latest is (he is) here today and continuing to rehab,” Stefanski said of Garrett’s availability for the game. “We’re going to list him as questionable. We’re going to use the next 24, 48 hours to see how he continues to respond to treatment and those types of things and make an appropriate decision on him and the rest of the guys.”

Garrett has three sacks, seven tackles and a forced fumble in three games this season for the Browns (2-1).

A two-time All-Pro, Garrett has recorded 210 tackles, 61.5 sacks and 12 forced fumbles in 71 games (69 starts) since being selected by the Browns with the top overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft.

Clowney, 29, is nursing an ankle injury that forced him to miss Cleveland’s 29-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sept. 22.

He has totaled 297 tackles, 42.5 sacks and 13 forced fumbles in 99 career games (90 starts) with the Houston Texans, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans and Browns. Clowney was selected by the Texans with the top overall pick of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Myles Garrett issued citation in rollover crash

Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was issued a citation Thursday for failure to control his vehicle in the rollover crash that injured the two-time All-Pro earlier this week.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol issued the citation in Wadsworth Municipal Court. Garrett was cited for traveling at an un unsafe speed for the type of roadway; he was driving 65 mph in a posted 45-mph zone.

Garrett’s 2021 Porsche went off the road Monday and flipped multiple times before coming to a rest in a ditch.

Garrett and a female passenger were taken by ambulance for medical attention with non-life-threatening injuries. Both were released Monday night.

Garrett wound up with a shoulder sprain, a biceps strain, minor lacerations as well as some bumps and bruises to various other body parts. The accident occurred after Garrett, 26, left the practice facility in Berea, Ohio.

WKYC reported Wednesday that Garrett has been stopped for speeding at least six times since joining the Browns in 2017. Citing court records, WKYC said he has been cited for driving in excess of 100 mph multiple times, with a high of 120 mph.

Garrett was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and is in his sixth season with the Browns. He has recorded 61.5 sacks and 12 forced fumbles in 71 games (69 starts).

The Browns (2-1) are scheduled for a Sunday road game against the Atlanta Falcons (1-2) and there’s a chance that Garrett will be well enough to play.

Browns’ Myles Garrett could play Sunday, despite crash

Cleveland Browns star Myles Garrett has not been ruled out for Sunday’s game in Atlanta, despite sustaining injuries in a car crash on Monday.

The defensive end sprained a shoulder, strained his biceps and got other bumps and bruises in the one-car accident when his 2021 Porsche went off the road and flipped multiple times before coming to a rest.

Garrett missed practice Wednesday and stayed home to rest, but Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said that he expected him back with the team on Thursday.

“Very, very grateful that he’s OK,” Stefanski said of his pass rusher.

NFL Network reported Tuesday that Garrett swerved to avoid an animal on a wet road and over-corrected, causing the car to flip.

The Browns said Monday the accident occurred after Garrett, 26, left the practice facility.

Details of the crash are under investigation. The Ohio State Highway Patrol confirmed there was a female passenger in the vehicle and that both occupants were wearing seatbelts, and there was no suspicion that Garrett was under the influence of alcohol nor drugs. She sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

Garrett was the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft and is in his sixth season with the Browns. He has recorded 61.5 sacks and 12 forced fumbles in 71 games (69 starts).

Browns DE Myles Garrett (neck) expected to play vs. Steelers

The Cleveland Browns expect defensive end Myles Garrett and two other key contributors to play Thursday night against Pittsburgh.

Garrett (neck), right tackle Jack Conklin (knee) and guard Joel Bitonio (biceps) are all expected to play when the Browns and Steelers square off.

Garrett, an All-Pro, sat out of practice Tuesday with a neck injury and the Browns had already ruled out Jadeveon Clowney (ankle) for Week 3.

Garrett and Bitonio were hurt Sunday in the Browns’ loss to the New York Jets but finished the game.

Bitonio also missed practice on Tuesday. Conklin, another All-Pro, has yet to make his season debut as he continued to recover from a season-ending knee injury.

The Browns will be at full strength at both tackle positions for the first time this season.

Browns DE Myles Garrett (groin) questionable vs. Packers

Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett was listed as questionable to face the host Green Bay Packers on Saturday despite failing to practice this week.

Garrett is nursing a groin injury sustained in Cleveland’s 16-14 loss to the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday.

“He wants to play very badly but we’ll see how it goes over the next couple days,” Browns coach Kevin Stefanski said of Garrett, whose 15 sacks trail only Pittsburgh’s T.J. Watt (17.5) and Chicago’s Robert Quinn (16) for the NFL lead.

Cleveland defensive tackle Malik Jackson (knee) also was listed as questionable despite being limited in practice on Thursday.

Safety John Johnson III (hamstring) has been ruled out for the Browns (7-7), while center JC Tretter was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Thursday.

Green Bay wide receiver Equanimeous St. Brown (concussion) was a full participant in Thursday’s practice and is expected to be available to play against Cleveland.

Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers (toe) and running back Aaron Jones (knee) did not receive an injury designation by the Packers (11-3).

Green Bay ruled out offensive tackles Billy Turner (knee) and David Bakhtiari (knee), linebacker Ty Summers (hamstring) and wide receiver Malik Taylor (shoulder) for Saturday’s game.

Browns DEs Myles Garrett, Jadeveon Clowney return to practice

Cleveland’s extensive injury report improved a bit Thursday as Myles Garrett and Jadeveon Clowney returned to practice, but the Browns were still without their backfield.

Garrett (knee, ankle) and Clowney (elbow, knee) were listed as limited in practice. Defensive end Takk McKinley (ankle, knee) also returned in limited fashion. Clowney missed the team’s Week 5 game.

Tight end David Njoku (knee) was also able to participate.

However, running backs Nick Chubb (calf) and Kareem Hunt (wrist, knee) both missed their second consecutive practice. Offensive linemen JC Tretter (knee), Jack Conklin (knee) and Jedrick Wills Jr. (ankle) also missed. Chubb is second in the NFL in rushing with 523 yards while Hunt has 295, good for 16th in the league.

Wills did practice Wednesday.

Browns offensive coordinator Alex Van Pelt said Thursday he’s “not really sure” if Wills and Conklin, the starting tackles, would be able to play.

“Hopefully we can get them out (to practice) later in the week, but if not, it’s next-man-up mentality for us,” Van Pelt said.

Cornerbacks Denzel Ward (neck), Greg Newsome II (calf) and Greedy Williams (shoulder) all practiced Thursday but were limited.

The Browns (3-2) host the unbeaten Arizona Cardinals (5-0) on Sunday.
