2017 NFL Draft No. 1 Pick Defensive End Myles Garrett Displays Toughness for Cleveland Browns

By Nikko Villanueva, Posted: 06/19/17 04:44AM EDT

When the 2017 NFL Draft took place and the Cleveland Browns used the No. 1 pick to select Myles Garrett, everyone knew they added someone special. Indeed Cleveland did as the young defensive end is reportedly ready for training camp, despite nursing a foot injury. 

According to NFL.com, the Browns announced Saturday that Garrett has a lateral foot sprain. The injury was suffered last Wednesday during minicamp. It prevented the 21-year-old from participating in practice Thursday and required him to sport a walking boot. 

The good news is, there is no need to worry for Cleveland. Included in the Browns' statement was a confirmation that Garrett is good to go for the upcoming training camp. 

This shows Garrett's toughness and his desire to help Cleveland, a goal he is focused on since being chosen in the NFL Draft. In one of his interviews following the selection process back in April, the Texas A&M product sounded eager to join the Browns and expressed his intention of doing "big things" for the organization. 

The world may see Garrett in NFL action for the first time in August. Cleveland will play four preseason games versus the New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the Chicago Bears. 

The true test for Garrett and the Browns starts on September 10 when they open their 2017 NFL season against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Garrett and Pittsburgh's franchise quarterback, Ben Roethlisberger, threw light verbal jabs at one another earlier this offseason which makes the game more interesting. 

Cleveland hopes Garrett would be one of the players that will lead the franchise to its resurrection. The Browns have missed the NFL playoffs for 14 consecutive seasons and they are considered as the worst team in the league.
