Monday's NFL injury and roster news for Week 12

Myles Garrett's stay on the reserve/COVID-19 list will last another week.

Garrett will be out for Cleveland's Week 12 game against Jacksonville, coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters Monday.

Garrett missed Cleveland's Week 11 win over Philadelphia due to his positive COVID-19 test, which came after he'd remained away from the team all week while feeling ill. The Browns recorded five sacks in the victory without Garrett, with Olivier Vernon accounting for three of them.

Despite not playing Sunday, Garrett remains tied for the league lead in sacks with 9.5, averaging slightly more than a sack per game. Garrett owns a league-best seven turnovers caused by quarterback pressures in 2020, per Next Gen Stats.

Jacksonville ranks 25th in sacks allowed per pass attempt at 7.96 percent.
