BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett didn’t hesitate to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Garrett contracted the virus last season and missed two games. He struggled with his breathing when he returned, so Garrett didn’t think twice and got vaccinated.

As the Browns opened training camp, the All-Pro said he’s not pushing any teammates to get the vaccine. He said that’s a personal choice.

Browns coach Kevin Stefanski would not disclose what percentage of his team is vaccinated. Rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah is missing the start of camp after the Browns placed him on the COVID/Reserve list.
