The car accident in it Myles Garrett‘S 2021 Porsche flips many times suffered multiple injuries and while the All-Pro defensive end returns to the Browns’ base this week, he will not be back on the field in Week 4.
The Browns excluding Garrett for their Falcons match. Monday’s crash left Garrett with a shoulder sprain and a biceps strain, along with cuts elsewhere. After not training when he returns, Garrett will have another week to recuperate.
The news is not particularly surprising, and the outcome of Garrett’s solo car crash on Monday afternoon could clearly have been significantly worse. As for the Browns, they can be significantly beaten on the defensive. Jadeveon Clowney is still in doubt to play against the Falcons, after missing Week 3 due to an ankle injury. But the two former Cleveland No. 1s did not practice this week. It is usually an indicator of an impending absence of a player.
Though injury problems have defined much of Clowney’s NFL career, Garrett hasn’t missed a game due to injury since his 2017 rookie season. His six-match suspension in 2019 and COVID-19 the following season resulted in Garrett’s only absence in the years since. Since coming back from his helmet attack Mason Rudolph, the Browns’ top passer amassed two All-Pro First Team titles. Garrett, 26, is going through a string of four double-digit seasons.
The Browns ranked 13th in total defense, tightening up against the Steelers after a Week 2 confrontation with the Jets. But removing Garrett from the equation will present a new challenge. The Browns used the third round pick on Alex Wright and started him in Clowney’s place in Week 3. To date, Wright has played 52% of the Browns’ defensive saves, and the 6-foot-7 defense has made two professional passes. The team has veterans Isaac Rochell and rookie of the seventh round Isaiah Thomas on its list of 53 people in this position.
