The Cleveland Browns ended up bruised and battered after their first joint practice of training camp with the Philadelphia Eagles. Myles Garrett, Denzel Ward, and Jack Conklin all suffered injuries during the first joint practice with the Eagles. Those are three starters, and two of them are the key cogs to the Browns’ defense.
Garrett reportedly suffered a foot injury. He told Mary Kay Cabot that ‘silly stuff happens when you get old’, so it seems that Garrett is in good spirits and it could be relatively minor. Garrett signed autographs for fans and did not appear to be seriously impeded by the foot injury, which is a good sign.
Ward is reportedly dealing with an illness and left in the middle of practice. He did not return, and was not seen on the sidelines following the session. Of course, it is unlikely for the illness to be too long-term of an issue for Ward, and he seems like he should be okay in a few days.
Conklin, Cleveland’s starting right tackle, suffered a head injury and is currently being evaluated for a concussion. That is a perilous injury and being in concussion protocol always makes things trickier when trying to come back onto the playing field. But three injuries are not what the Browns want to see in the first of their joint practices in Philadelphia with the Eagles.
