They will have to play without Garrett again this weekend. Head coach Kevin Stefanski announced on Monday that Garrett will not play against the Jaguars in Jacksonville. Stefanski said the league’s protocols led to Garrett being ruled out and wouldn’t otherwise discuss Garrett’s condition.
The Browns defensive line generated five sacks of Carson Wentz and one went for a safety when Olivier Vernon dropped Carson Wentz in the end zone. Another outing like that would help the Browns’ chances of ending Week 12 with an 8-3 record.
