Though he is still suspended indefinitely, Myles Garrett has been allowed back at Cleveland Browns facilities while he remains out of action.
Nate Urlich of the Akron Beacon Journal reported that the league has changed its mind about whether Garrett can be allowed into team facilities during his suspension.
Per Ulrich: “Garrett had been barred from the team’s training facility when the NFL suspended him, but a league source told the Beacon Journal that Garrett had his access restored within the last couple of weeks.”
His teammates report that Garrett is in good spirits.
“He seems in high spirits, man,” cornerback T.J. Carrie said. “But at the end of the day, when he goes home, no one really is going to know the full effect.
“The year he was having was MVP-type caliber [season]. He’s still up there in sacks. He hasn’t played in games. I think this year would’ve been a huge year for him. I know that’s probably something that he thinks about pretty often.”
Garrett certainly was in the NFL Defensive Player of the Year conversation before his act of rage sunk the rest of his season. For those who aren’t aware, Garrett was suspended by the league for ripping off the helmet of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph, then hitting him over the head with it as a weapon.
Though he is allowed back at Browns facilities, Garrett is not allowed to attend team meetings or practices.
