Myles Garrett has been wearing a walking boot since injuring his left foot during drills in the Cleveland Browns' minicamp on Wednesday. But the Browns still have not commented publicly on the severity of the No. 1 overall draft pick's injury.
Garrett was spotted in the walking boot Friday at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
The defensive end fell to the ground and grabbed his foot after rushing quarterback Brock Osweiler. Garrett then limped to the sidelines after being checked by team trainers. He missed Thursday's team activities to have his foot evaluated, and was excused from attending a youth sports clinic Friday at FirstEnergy Stadium. ESPN reported a Browns source said the team doesn't believe Garrett suffered major damage to his foot.
But while coach Hue Jackson and staff haven't addressed specifics about Garrett's condition, some of his teammates told the Cleveland Plain Dealer they expect the rookie will be fine.
Browns rookie tight end David Njoku told the Plain Dealer that Garrett is in high spirits and "he's a happy camper.''
Rookie defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi added Garrett will "bounce back."
"I've known Myles for just a short period of time, but we've connected and you know how good of a person he is because he's humble and he's hungry and really wants to be great. So you know it sucks, but it's part of the game," Ogunjobi said. "It's part of the process and you know he's going to bounce back.''
