The Cleveland Browns may be getting defensive end Myles Garrett back, but are now dealing with another injury to defensive tackle Danny Shelton.

The Cleveland Browns received some good news on Thursday as defensive end Myles Garrett returned to practice, but that news was tempered by the fact that starting defensive tackle Danny Shelton is now dealing with an injury.

Shelton injured his calf during practice on Wednesday, had an MRI and missed practice on Thursday, according to the injury report the team issued on clevelandbrowns.com.

This is the second injury that Shelton has dealt with in recent weeks as he missed a good portion of the preseason with a knee injury.

Neither the team nor Shelton went into specifics on Thursday about the calf injury, but Shelton put on a positive front when talking about his availability for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals, according to the team’s website:

"“You never know, but I am pretty confident that I will be good. I feel a lot better from yesterday. Just working with the trainers and doing the treatment, it has been feeling a lot better.”"

As much as Garrett will help the pass rush, losing Shelton will impact the run defense as he is coming off a solid game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Hopefully Shelton’s optimism is warranted and he will be on the field come Sunday afternoon.

Cleveland Browns news:

Browns welcome Myles Garrett back to practice

It has taken longer than anyone would have liked it to, but the wait may finally be over. Cleveland Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett returned to practice on Thursday and, if everything goes well, may make his debut on Sunday in front of the home fans as the Browns take on the Cincinnati Bengals.

Browns: Week 3 offensive line report

The Cleveland Browns offensive line was supposed to be an asset against the Indianapolis Colts. Did the line come through in the clutch?

"On the first play from scrimmage in Sunday’s loss to the Colts, Browns running back Isaiah Crowell received the handoff, followed his blockers up the middle and barrelled over a pair of defenders. It ended in a 10-yard gain for a new-look offense looking to get its run game on track. And, perhaps equally importantly, it served as an example of what Cleveland hopes will be routine in the near future."

"Joe Thomas continually insists he knows nothing about quarterback play. But he does know about pass protection and play calls and he does watch film with the offense. So when Thomas offers the opinion that Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer showed positive strides in the loss to the Indianapolis Colts it’s worth listening."

"There’s really no denying the truth of this Bengals offense. The statistics show it. The film certainly shows it. And the associated coordinator change from Ken Zampese to Bill Lazor solidified it. The offense for the quarterback charged with administering it felt light years away from the baseline established by Andy Dalton’s first coordinator, Jay Gruden, in 2011."

"Bears rookie Mitch Trubisky paced the sideline around midfield Thursday night. With a headset and baseball cap on, he held the play sheet close to his face, glancing at it briefly. Then he stopped near quarterbacks coach Dave Ragone and veteran Mark Sanchez and turned his attention to the field, where the Bears’ starting offense was aligning for its first play from scrimmage."

"A strange night in Green Bay, interrupted by a 47-minute lightning delay, ended in a familiar fashion. The Packers’ 35-14 victory over the visiting Chicago Bears was notable for its total lack of suspense, the home team holding a two-touchdown lead before the Bears even ran a second offensive play."
