Cleveland.com reports that the Browns also indicated Garrett is likely out for Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings in London. There has been no word whether or not Garrett will travel with the team to London.
Garrett was touted as an arguable no-brainer top pick before the Browns selected him with the No. 1 pick in the 2017 NFL Draft. Injuries, however, have plagued the 21-year-old. A high-ankle sprain caused him to miss the first four games of the season. But in three games since his return, Garrett has notched a team-leading four sacks and seven tackles in three games.
Suffice to say, yet another devastating blow for the Browns, who followed a 1-15 campaign in 2016 with an 0-7 start this season.
