Former No. 1 overall pick set to miss time after suffering injury just before season-opener

This is awful news.

The Cleveland Browns will be without No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett as they start the season Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Garrett injured his right ankle during practice on Wednesday.

According to, Garrett could miss four or more weeks with the injury. Garrett sprained his left foot earlier in camp, and that injury sidelined him for a few weeks.

Last season at Texas A&M, Garrett sprained his left ankle that bothered him throughout the season.

It's a difficult loss for the Browns, who needed Garrett as the prepared to take on Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers' offense.
