Myles Garrett has high ankle sprain, likely to miss a month

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger right visits with newly acquired cornerback Joe Haden during a team practice at the NFL football team's training facility in Pittsburgh on Monday Sept. 4 2017

Cleveland's rookie defensive end, who through preseason has lived up to enormous expectations as the No. 1 overall pick in this year's National Football League draft, sustained a right ankle injury Wednesday, leaving his status for Sunday's opener against Pittsburgh in doubt.

Cabot indicates there is concern Garrett, the No. 1 overall draft pick, will be out for some time.

The only Browns quarterback to equal that win in Cleveland since 1999 is Derek Anderson, who went 16-18 during his tenure, winning 10 of his 16 games at home. He suffered a left foot injury in minicamp with the Browns in June and had to wear a walking boot.

An MRI revealed that Garrett, who's 6-foot-4, 275 pounds, has a high ankle sprain, a tricky injury that typically takes several weeks to heal.

On draft night, after the Browns took Garrett with the No. 1 pick, the former Texas A&M standout said of Roethlisberger that he's "coming for him first, to chop him down". I mean, Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger - an OH native - has had absolutely no trouble with the Browns as he looks to improve his record to 21-2 against the club this weekend.

Again, I'm on the fence, but it would at least create some buzz for these games against the Steelers' most logical rival, a franchise that is just that short drive away. Will the Browns receivers make big plays?

Myles Garett could have a major impact in the pass rush, and Jabril Peppers is an impact player on defense and in the return game. A former-first round pick by the New York Jets, Pryor, a safety, was released Thursday by Cleveland shortly after he was involved in a fight with wide receiver Ricardo Louis. Is Britt a one-year wonder or will continue to provide big plays and scoring chances? Pittsburgh's offense averaged 24.9 points during the regular season.

Garrett's comments are fine with Jackson, but the Browns coach added after delivering the news on Garrett's health: "Now he has to back it up".

"I was just looking forward to trying to get to the playoffs, trying to spread my career to play where I haven't played", Haden said.

NB: No. Pittsburgh is a Super Bowl contending team, and Cleveland is still fighting to get out of the bottom 10. "That is something that I am going to have to be able to do here in Cleveland".

Now we know how they all got here, it remains to be seen if this blend of talent and backgrounds can do something the Steelers have failed to do since 2008. "He hasn't. We'll be ready to go". "It wasn't intentional and those things happen", Jackson says.
