Losing is tough in the NFL but it's worse when players get banged up during a defeat. That's what happened to the Cleveland Browns, who were already dealing with a plethora of injuries. With Deshaun Watson, Nick Chubb, and Jack Conklin out, the Browns have been leaning heavily on the defense this year.
The leader of that unit has been Myles Garrett, who is playing at an MVP level right now. Unfortunately, he was one of the players who was injured during their Week 12 loss to the Denver Broncos. Garrett, who left and re-entered the game for a while, says he "felt a pop" in his shoulder and was in a sling afterward.
He wound up getting an MRI and it appears there's no structural damage. Garrett insisted he would play through the pain and after being a limited participant early in the week, he was a full participant by Friday. Now, he heads into the game against the Los Angeles Rams without an injury designation.
That's great news for Cleveland, especially since they will be turning to their fourth starting quarterback this year. Dorian Thompson-Robinson suffered a concussion in the second half last week and will be out this Sunday. That means Joe Flacco will get the start. With all that being said, here's a look at the full injury report heading into this game.
