BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett continues to be slowed by an unspecified injury.
The No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft wasn’t on the field Wednesday as his teammates worked out. Garrett was with a group of other injured players, who worked with trainers on the side.
Last week, Garrett described the injury “as a little nick” and said the Browns were holding him out of practice as a precaution. He also said he expected to be “full tilt” for this week’s workouts. A Browns spokesman said Garrett did participate in Tuesday’s practice, which wasn’t open to the media.
The 6-foot-4, 272-pound Garrett was slowed by an ankle injury during part of his junior season at Texas A&M.
The Browns are counting on Garrett to not only improve their pass rush but a defensive unit that was ranked among the worst in the NFL last season.
