Browns reportedly fear Myles Garrett could be out 'weeks' with ankle issue

Browns reportedly fear Myles Garrett could be out 'weeks' with ankle issue”

During his junior season at Texas A&M, Garrett was severely limited with a left ankle injury.

As he prepares for his National Football League debut, Browns rookie Myles Garrett says he's viewing Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger as "just another guy".

Last season, Roethlisberger was sacked a career-low 17 times, and his confidence in the offensive line is still high as the 2017 season begins. "We'll see where we are", Jackson said of Garrett, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "They always want to protect me, open up things in the run game, so they take great pride in being the best in the business and that's what I think they are". "So we'll see where we are as we move through the week".

Garrett had a foot issue in minicamp, but Jackson said he did not believe the ankle was at all related.

Garrett has previously dealt with foot-related injuries prior to making it into the National Football League, notably dealing with a left ankle injury during his third and final season in College Station, Texas. Garrett still finished the year with 15.0 sacks and 8.5 tackles for loss.

"You shouldn't be scared to take anybody down", Garrett said. It is not just one player getting after five guys.

Garrett and Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer will both get their first taste of one of the NFL's fiercest rivalries.

Garrett was officially listed as limited participant on the Browns' practice report.
