Myles Garrett Expected to Be Ready for Training Camp Despite Foot Injury

A statement from the team today indicated that Myles Garrett has a relatively minor injury and should be good to go when the team opens camp in July.

The No. 1 overall draft pick was kept off the field Thursday with a left foot injury that is still being examined. He was spotted at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport on Friday wearing a walking boot.

For his sake and for the sake of a fan base that is in desperate need for some positive momentum, I hope that Garrett's foot injury doesn't prevent him from entering training camp in the proper condition that will allow him to hit the ground running as he begins his career.

The Browns recently signed the rookie star to a four-year, $30.4 million contract. Garrett had been slowed by an unspecified injury earlier this spring.

"That's part of the game", said Browns head coach Hue Jackson.

Garrett's good friend and fellow rookie Larry Ogunjobi said Friday morning at the youth clinic that he was helping Garrett keep his spirits up.

Throughout Cleveland's OTAs, Garrett struggled with what reported as a "sore foot". When diagnosed with a sprained ankle, you will likely be recommended to wear the walking boot for a certain period of time pending a check-in on the healing process.

Ogunjobi, a third-round pick, said Garrett has handled the setback well. "One day at a time", he said. "You kind of have to keep him in high spirits, you keep him going and you know he's good". He's still smiling, he's still feeling good.

Defensive line coach Clyde Simmons is also eager for his return. The deal included a $20 million signing bonus and a club option for a fifth year. Garrett remained on the practice field as an observer, but was limping noticeably.
