Need to Know: Myles Garrett practices again; Hue Jackson hopes more players back by end of week

In the moments before he hit the practice field for the third time in the past week, Myles Garrett sent out a Tweet his coach was as happy to see as anyone else.

Garrett, the No. 1 pick who has yet to see the field because of a high ankle sprain, simply said "Regrese," which translates from Spanish to English as "I am back."

"That is good. I would like to see that tweet," Jackson said with a laugh after the practice. "He did some good things today, so again, we will just keep assessing everything after practice and see exactly where he is and see if we can get him back out there tomorrow."

Garrett, the highly touted pass rusher who made an immediate impact in the preseason, was officially listed as a limited participant at Wednesday's practice. He did more at the practice than he did at last Thursday's, his first since suffering the injury in early September.

"He did some better things today," Jackson said. "We will see after practice just where that is and then kind of go from there."

Linebacker Jamie Collins Sr., who has missed the past two games because of a concussion, and defensive tackle Danny Shelton, who missed last week's game with a calf injury, did not practice, but Jackson said he's hoping to "get some other guys back toward the end of the week."

"Looking forward to those guys getting back out there and practicing so they have an opportunity to play this weekend," Jackson said.

The Browns practice before their game against the Jets in Week 5.

-- Jackson said Bryce Treggs' "top-end speed" stands out to him as he looks to find opportunities for his newest receiver.

The Browns signed Treggs off Philadelphia's practice squad Tuesday in the wake of waiving Jordan Leslie (hamstring) with an injury designation. Cleveland is looking for an immediate impact in a position group that has struggled through the first quarter of the season.

"He has suddenness, he has quickness," Jackson said. "I have always known that about him. I really like him.

"This guy is here because he can help our football team. I think he can play. I think he has some characteristics that I think we need. We will leave it at that and see where it goes."

-- Jabrill Peppers' connection to New York Jets safety Jamal Adams goes beyond all of the time they spent with each other leading up to the 2017 NFL Draft.

Both participated in the 2014 Under Armour All-American Game during their respective senior years of high school. The highly touted recruits bonded during the week of practice, and Peppers said Adams tried to sway him out of his commitment to Michigan and follow him to LSU. Peppers, of course, remained steadfast in his pledge, and the two ended up becoming first-round picks three years later.

"He's having a hell of a year so far," Peppers said. "He's around the ball making plays, both behind the line and showing great range."

-- Browns quarterback DeShone Kizer had high praise for Adams, too, saying "he hits like a linebacker" and is "as fast as a corner." He's a player Kizer will identify every time he's under center as he looks to find holes elsewhere in the Jets defense.

"He has all of the it factors to be a good safety in this league, and he has been able to show it in the first four games," Kizer said. "His transition from college to the NFL obviously was seamless. It is on us to make sure now that we find out where he is each play and make sure that we keep the ball out of his way."
