The Cleveland Browns are optimistic Myles Garrett will be ready to go week one of the 2020 NFL season.

Garrett has been suspended indefinitely ever since he hit Mason Rudolph in the head with his own helmet. Yet, reports seem to indicate he’ll be back for the start of the season after an upcoming meeting with commissioner Roger Goodell.

Browns GM Andrew Berry said, “Certainly, our hope is for Myles to be reinstated. Obviously, I was part of drafting him here previously. Obviously, this fall he made a huge mistake, but we know who Myles is a person, and we look forward to welcoming him back,” according to a Wednesday night report from ProFootballTalk.

As I’ve said before, the NFL should be embarrassed if Garrett is allowed to play week one. Roger Goodell has no spine if that’s allowed to happen.

Garrett could have seriously injured Rudolph with that helmet strike. Hell, he could have done damage that could have never been fixed.

Luckily, Rudolph was fine, but that’s not the point.

Players have been hit with gigantic suspensions for smoking weed and air pressure in balls. Yet, they’re going to let Garrett only sit part of a season for what he did to Rudolph?

Give me a break. If Goodell has any backbone at all, he’ll make Garrett miss at least half of the 2020 season.
