Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, has been diagnosed with a high ankle sprain.
According to Browns broadcaster Nathan Zegura, Garrett suffered the injury earlier this week when a player fell on his leg during practice. He underwent an MRI on Wednesday and the team plans to update his playing status in “a couple weeks.”
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network pointed out the ailment usually sidelines players for between four and six weeks, though individual timetables for a full recovery vary.
During Garrett’s absence, defensive ends Nate Orchard and Carl Nassib are expected to step into expanded roles on the defense.
Myles Garrett was a dominant force in college and racked up 141 total tackles, 31 sacks, seven forced fumbles and an interception across 34 games with the Aggies.
