AFC Notes: Browns, Ravens, Steelers

     

Browns

Despite the fact that Browns’ DE Myles Garrett has been a one-man wrecking machine this season, the team is still looking for other ways to get at the quarterback.

“If it is not what it is supposed to be, then we just have to do better,” Garrett said, via Scott Petrak of BrownsZone.com.I have to do better. I have to win my one-on-ones quicker. I have to beat whoever I have to beat to get pressure on them. That is on us who is called upon. We can’t be asking for anybody else. We can’t be complaining about the scheme. We just have to find a way to make it happen.”

Garrett will play Sunday against the Raiders after missing two days of practice with an ankle injury. Browns’ HC Kevin Stefanski said the team is “making sure we are keeping tabs on him, but he is ready to go.” Garrett added that he has tweaked the ankle twice and has simply needed to rest it going forward.

“I tweaked it twice so I just needed some time to get right,” Garrett said. It’s doing all right. Getting old, so just trying to take my time when I can. Doing the best that I can and going out there and making the plays that I am supposed to make. For what is in the forecast (wind and rain), I will probably be doing a little bit more run-stopping than pass rushing. Whatever happens, I will be ready for it.”

Ravens

  • Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic notes that one failure of the Ravens’ this season was finding a replacement for retired G Marshal Yanda.
  • Despite the struggle of replacing a player who is likely a future Hall of Famer, Zrebiec says that G Tyre Phillips has struggled in doing so as he had never played guard prior to getting to the NFL.
  • Zrebiec also says that while most Ravens fans are unrealistically fantasizing about adding a receiver like Julio Jones, Michael Thomas, or Kenny Golladay, the team should be able to get a lower-tier receiver such as Marvin Jones or Will Fuller.
  • He adds that either player would be a strong upgrade at a reasonable price. Zrebiec thinks this is likely the best they can do with their current cap space and due to the fact that they have already traded away some of their future draft picks.
  • Ravens promoted DB Terrell Bonds and LB Kristian Welch to their active roster.
