Here we go again.

Fans of the Browns franchise have become all too familiar with the early camp injuries to star players. The injury bug decided to bite No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett on Wednesday.

According to the Associated Press, Garrett injured his left foot late in practice during a two-minute drill. He stayed on the ground while being checked by trainers before going off to the sideline. He stayed on the sideline before practice was cut short due to a lightning warning and was seen limping off the field.

There is no word yet on what the injury might be, the severity of it, or if any medical treatment will be required. But Garrett already was dealing with an injury early in OTAs and, of course, said a high ankle sprain slowed him down last season at Texas A&M.

It’s too soon to hit the panic button on a player expected to help transform the Browns’ pass rush this season. But considering 2000 No. 1 overall pick Courtney Brown had his career severely shortened due to injury, this news is definitely an early cause for concern.
