Garrett’s NFL debut will be delayed.
Defensive end Myles Garrett, the Browns’ No. 1 overall pick in April, suffered an ankle injury in practice yesterday and left the field early.
This morning, multiple outlets reported that Garrett suffered a high ankle sprain and will miss several weeks.
This is two years in a row with an early-season injury for the Browns’ top pick. Last year, wide receiver Corey Coleman, broke his hand in Week 2 and missed six games.
#Browns No. 1 pick Myles Garrett was diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, knocking him out several weeks. Generally 4-6 weeks.

Myles Garrett suffered a high ankle sprain. His status, per team, will be updated in a couple of weeks. Not good…

After a strong preseason, Garrett positioned himself as a bright spot to look forward to for a rebuilding Browns team.
Now, fans will have to wait a little longer to see him.
