In a Monday joint practice session with the Philadelphia Eagles, the Cleveland Browns faced some concerning moments as key players dealt with health issues.
Defensive end Myles Garrett left the field around the midpoint of the practice, making his way to the training room accompanied by athletic trainers.
Meanwhile, right tackle Jack Conklin was under evaluation for a possible concussion, and cornerback Denzel Ward had to step out during 11-on-11 drills due to an illness.
The Browns organization provided limited information regarding the status of Myles Garrett, disclosing only that he had sustained a foot injury.
Despite the initial worries, Garrett displayed a lighthearted attitude, returning to the field later in the practice session. He interacted with fans by signing autographs and posing for pictures, even going as far as to step onto the field barefoot.
The Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot inquired Garrett about his condition. In response, he humorously commented, “Silly stuff happens when you get old,” suggesting that the incident might not be as serious as initially feared.
