Sunday will be the first real chance for Garrett to show off his pass rushing and sacking abilities. He will have more victories in Cleveland than any Browns quarterback since 1999 if the Steelers win Sunday.
The team said that Garrett's status will be updated in a couple weeks. He stands by that statement now that opening week is upon us.
"You have a game plan", he said. "I was super excited when we got him". "Making a difference whether it's a sack, TFL (tackle for loss) or just being disruptive, that's what I'm going to do". It's the whole defense against their offense. I don't want to go out there and jeopardize myself getting hurt in camp.
Bringing down "Big Ben" is no easy task. Despite the injury, Garrett managed to pick up 8.5 sacks over the course of 10 games - both of which served as career lows. Obviously, he didn't finish practice so let's just leave it at that. "So when you're trying to get him down, just try to rake the ball out when you're doing it".
Dieken also tells the guys what to expect from rookie QB DeShone Kizer in his debut. When Garrett returns, he will have the same traits he has now.
"That is fine", Garrett says. "There are just a lot of details that you need to be on".
This is awful news for the Browns, who had high hopes for the top prospect in the 2017 draft class. Garrett is a freakish pass rusher when healthy, but he's had a hard time staying healthy since getting to the NFL.
"He is no small fella". It's going to be pretty tough.
Roethlisberger has taken it upon himself to make sure the three are up to speed on "Steeler tradition, the Steeler way".
