The Browns list multiple defensive starters as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chargers. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler, however, reports that the team is "expecting most of their defensive nucleus intact." DE Myles Garrett is officially questionable, listed with knee and ankle issues that kept him out of Friday's practice. Garrett said earlier Friday that he expects to play, though. Also questionable are DE Jadeveon Clowney (elbow), CB Denzel Ward (neck) and LB Malcolm Smith (abdomen). Garrett is easily the biggest IDP factor of the group, so his optimism is good news. The late-afternoon Sunday kickoff makes it tougher to wait on any of them, and the other 3 probably aren't worth the wait in most cases. We'll update them all when game inactives come out, though.
Browns DE Myles Garrett is active for today's game against the Packers. He figures to be affected by the groin injury that kept him from practicing this week, but it's tough to sit an active Garrett in IDP leagues.
Browns DE Myles Garrett is questionable for Saturday's game against the Packers after missing practice all week. "I feel like I'll play regardless of how I feel," Garrett said Thursday, according to Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. "I haven't practiced, so we'll see. But I'm going to go out there and give my all." We'll see about Garrett's official status Saturday around 3 p.m. ET.
Browns DE Myles Garrett (knee, ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals. He was questionable last week for the same issues and played. Garrett finished the week with a limited Friday practice -- an improvement over last week, when he sat out Friday. DE Jadeveon Clowney (elbow, knee) is also questionable. He missed last week's game. CB Denzel Ward (neck) and CB Greg Newsome (calf) are questionable as well. LB Malcolm Smith has been ruled out. We'll update statuses for the questionable defenders come Sunday afternoon. Plan on using Garrett as usual in IDP lineups. You can probably find better options than the risk of waiting on the others.
The Browns expect to activate DE Myles Garrett off the COVID list Wednesday, which would make him eligible to return for Sunday's game against the Titans. Garrett missed the past 2 contests but should obviously return to IDP lineups going forward. He trails Rams DE Aaron Donald by just 0.5 for the NFL sack lead.
Browns HC Kevin Stefanski said Monday that DE Myles Garrett will miss another game on the COVID list. That puts him out for another upside matchup against Jacksonville. Porter Gustin started in Garrett's place against the Eagles, got his most playing time since Week 3 and notched a QB hit. He'll be just a low-level option against the Jaguars, though.
