Myles Garrett diagnosed with lateral foot sprain

Garrett hurt his left foot Wednesday during drills, and Coach Hue Jackson didn't know how severe the injury was at the time.

1 pick, didn't appear at a youth football camp Friday at FirstEnergy Stadium with the Browns' rookie class - safety Jabrill Peppers was excused - and the team didn't provide an update. Having their top pick healthy and ready to go when camp begins will be important for the team hoping to improve upon their 1-15 showing from a year ago.

Ogunjobi said Garrett, who signed his four-year, $30.4 million rookie contract last month, has handled the setback well.

A pass rusher from Texas A&M, Garrett is viewed as an immediate difference-maker in the Browns' defense. "So you know it sucks, but it's part of the game", Ogunjobi said.

Garrett was limited during organized team activities and minicamp with what reported as a sore foot. That's the nature of the game.

He said Garrett is handling it well. "One day at a time", he said. It's just part of life.

"He has done a great job", said new defensive coordinator Gregg Williams. "I have a big smile on my face, and I will just wait and let him show everybody before I talk about it".

Defensive line coach Clyde Simmons is also eager for his return. The deal includes a $20.25 million signing bonus and a fifth-year club option.

Garrett had more than 26 sacks by himself in his three seasons with Texas A&M, tallying 31 total due to an explosive first step and the power to bulldoze through offensive linemen when needed. Garrett remained on the practice field as an observer, but was limping noticeably. "He's a guy you can learn a lot from".
