Myles Garrett Injury Update: No. 1 Pick Suffers High-Ankle Sprain


It looks like Myles Garrett, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, could miss significant time to start his rookie season.

On Thursday morning, the Cleveland Browns announced the former Texas A&M star has suffered a high-ankle sprain. The injury will be re-evaluated in a few weeks, while Garrett remains on the sideline.

Typical time for a high-ankle sprain recovery is in the four to six week range.

Garrett initially suffered the injury during Wednesday’s practice. He underwent further evaluation throughout the day, before a timeline for his recovery was set. Without Garrett in the starting lineup, the Browns will turn to Nate Orchard and Carl Nassib to fill the void.

Cleveland opens the season against the division rival Pittsburgh Steelers at home. Kickoff at FirstEnergy Stadium is set for 1:00 p.m. ET on CBS.
