Browns Get Good News on Myles Garrett Injury Update
By Max Staley
The Cleveland Browns struggled through a tough loss on Sunday, falling, 16-6, to the Las Vegas Raiders. But believe it or not, things could've actually been a lot worse. Superstar defensive end Myles Garrett hurt his knee on Sunday, but he's apparently going to be just fine.
The 24-year-old is expected to be back to 100% health following Cleveland's Week 9 bye.
This is obviously incredible news for Cleveland, as he has been the lone bright spot on an otherwise terrible Browns defense. Prior to last week, Cleveland was the league's ninth-worst defense by Football Outsiders' DVOA metrics despite getting otherworldly production from Garrett.
The former No. 1 overall pick is currently tied for an NFL-best 9.0 sacks, and he still has an outside shot at breaking the all-time single-season sack record in 2020.
Hopefully Garrett's recovery goes as planned, because the Browns' will need him at full strength as they vie for a playoff berth this season.
