Browns' top pick Garrett injures ankle during practice

Rookie defensive end Myles Garrett has a high right ankle sprain and will not play against the Steelers in the season opener September 10, the Browns reported in an update on September 7.

More reports are coming out about Cleveland Browns rookie Myles Garrett and his injured right ankle, and the news isn't positive.

"He is a guy who doesn't go down easily", Kizer said.

Garrett will undergo further testing that will include an MRI, a source close to Garrett said. He knows it and has worked hard on his conditioning to play a full season.

"Never in my eight years have I ever seen (this)", center Maurkice Pouncey said.

"He has to go out and play his tail off for us", he said. Garrett hurt his foot in minicamp before hurting his ankle Wednesday.

Joe Haden-The ex-Brown and new Steeler starting CB will be on a mission in his first game against his former team. Now, that chance may have to wait as he recovers from another injury.

During June's mini-camp, Garrett suffered a foot injury, but he recovered just in time for training camp. He has dazzled with his speed, strength and commitment.

The 6-foot-4, 275-pound Garrett was limited by a left ankle sprain a year ago at Texas A&M.

In the late 1960s the Dallas Cowboys rose up as Cleveland's biggest rival, as Dallas beat the Browns for the division title in 1966 and again in the playoffs in 1967.

In November 2004, days before the 3-5 Browns hosted the 7-1 Steelers, defensive tackle Gerard Warren, Cleveland's 2001 first-round pick, explained his plan for slowing Roethlisberger, then a rookie. "I feel he will show that on Sunday". We didn't miss on that one. "He just has stuff that you can't teach - his motor, his professionalism and his attitude".

"It'll definitely be unusual and odd to see him in a Steelers jersey", 10-time Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas said of Haden. He is mature beyond his age. Offensively, Cleveland averaged just 16.5 points per game in 2016.

Last year, Brown scored 12 receiving touchdowns for the Steelers which is one shy of his career high in that category. Following the draft, Garrett made it clear he meant to make Roethlisberger his first sack, saying he was "coming for him first".

This week, before the injury, Garrett remained steadfast in his initial assessment.

"He's no small fella". It's going to be pretty tough. It could happen to anybody on our football team. "He is not at the bottom", Jackson said.

"I can't explain it, you're not prepared for it but you're excited", Wilcox said.
