Myles Garrett back practicing; his explosion is evident

Top pick Myles Garrett was on the practice field during Tuesday's OTA practice open to the media.

BEREA, Ohio--There was a Myles Garrett sighting Tuesday.

The NFL's overall top pick in 2017 was practicing for the first time--at least in front of the media. Garrett practiced last Tuesday and Thursday according to Hue Jackson, but reporters and cameramen were only permitted to watch practice on Wednesday.

Jackson said the injury wasn't related to the high ankle sprain he suffered last season at Texas A & M, but wouldn't reveal the injury. It has been reported by Cleveland.com that Garrett had a minor foot injury.

Jackson said that Garrett is not practicing every day.

“He is alternating," he said. "I’m going to make sure—I will keep saying it until I know for sure that we are totally healthy or where we need to be—there is some football that he has missed and so, we are working him back.

"He had a good practice today," he said. "I can’t wait to watch the tape. We will get him back out there again before this OTA session is done.”

Jackson was asked how Garrett's explosion off the line makes him feel.

“Really good and if I was a quarterback, really scared," he said. "He is talented. I think we all know that. He has just got to continue to integrate himself within our defense and our system. He’s a very eager and willing young man. He has worked extremely hard. I think hopefully you guys saw the talent today, and we’ll keep pushing him and getting him to where he needs to be.”
