Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett, the No. 1 overall pick in this year's Draft, limped off the field with a foot injury during Wednesday's minicamp. Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reported that Garrett suffered the injury as he was about to sack Brock Osweiler during a two-minute drill near the end of practice. Garrett went down in a heap with no apparent contact and grabbed his foot while appearing to be in considerable pain.

According to Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network, Garrett walked the full sideline in an apparent effort to shrug off the injury. While walking, he greeted some teammates with high fives and walked off the field limping as the Browns moved their training indoors due to bad weather.

Head coach Hue Jackson confirmed to reporters after practice that Garrett apparently suffered a foot injury. Jackson is hoping that “everything's OK and we'll see once we get a chance to go inside."

Jackson optimistic about Garrett’s injury

Jackson also considered as a good sign the fact that Garrett left the field without assistance from a trainer. In his final season at Texas A&M, Garrett sustained a high ankle sprain in September and battled through it during the season. While Garrett missed some of the Browns' OTAs with an undisclosed injury, Jackson said it was largely precautionary. Depending on the extent of the injury, Garrett has a full six weeks to heal before training camp starts in late July.

Garrett recently signed a four-year, $30.4 million deal, with a $20.25 million signing bonus, last month.

Outstanding career at Texas A&M

The Browns were rumored to pick quarterback Mitch Trubisky with the No. 1 overall pick but eventually fulfilled their earlier plan of taking Garrett as the anchor of their defense.

The Browns also planned to take Trubisky later in the first round with their No. 12 overall pick but the Chicago Bears traded up to No. 2 to take the Ohio native as their future franchise quarterback.

During his stint with the Aggies, Garrett tallied 141 total tackles, with 47 tackles for loss, 31 sacks, seven forced fumbles, five passes defended, and an interception in 34 collegiate games.

Injuries limited Garrett’s performance in his final season, recording just 33 tackles and 8.5 sacks. Aside from Garrett, the Browns also picked another defensive player, taking versatile lineman Jabrill Peppers with the No. 25 overall pick. Peppers showed his versatility during his collegiate stint at Michigan, but he will probably play safety for the Browns.
