Much like an expensive vase, or a major award, first-round picks tend to have “handle with care” warnings.
But we wouldn’t consider Myles Garrett fragile, even if he’s spending a day during organized team activities on the sideline.
The first-overall pick is dealing with an undisclosed injury that isn’t believed to be serious, per the Akron Beacon Journal. Garrett could be seen laughing and smiling while off to the side working with kettlebells alongside a group of offensive linemen on Wednesday, according to The Plain Dealer. Coach Hue Jackson told reporters after practice that Garrett will be fine and that the team is being cautious.
Garrett went one step further afterward, saying he will be “full tilt” next week after taking it slowly as a precaution. Per multiple reports, he’s expected to return to OTAs next week.
It’s also worth noting that Joe Thomas, a player who has never missed a start, was in the group with Garrett, and it’s May. Jackson said it’s nothing serious with him, wide receiver Kenny Britt or safety Jabrill Peppers, with each also missing Wednesday’s activities. Don’t panic, Cleveland.
Other injury news we’re tracking on Wednesday:
