Browns camp update: A few moves, more injuries and Garrett still out

·3 min read

Monday was an interestingly busy day for the Cleveland Browns as their second day of training camp after the start of preseason games happened. Sunday included a few injury updates and DE Myles Garrett being excused from practice.

On Monday, we did not get an update on QB Deshaun Watson’s discipline or OL Nick Harris’ injury but we saw the Browns back out on the field in Berea. This week will include joint practices with the Philadelphia Eagles coming to town before the two meet in the second preseason game for both teams.

Cleveland won’t play many, if any, starters in the game and it is likely Philadelphia will do the same.

Unfortunately, Monday came with a few more injuries of concern for the Browns:

Another day, another injury to an interior offensive lineman as Deaton was a part of the depth to help replace Harris but had to be carted off with a knee injury as well:

With Harris and Deaton carted off in the last few days, a couple of guys had to slide over to help out:

One of the major issues with Cleveland’s injuries so far in camp is that they keep getting hit at the same positions. Harley joins a variety of other receivers who have had injuries during camp, his is an ankle injury:

One positive for the Browns as their top corner returns from the PUP list. The team didn’t have to make a corresponding move but started their process toward getting down to 85 players by waiving Dillon:

Not a lot of information as Garrett’s absence hits day two. At this point, no reason to be concerned but that could change if his absence continues:

It is quite possibly going to be the Josh (Dobbs) and Josh (Rosen) show against Philadelphia as Brissett won’t be playing and Watson’s status is up in the air:
