3. Defensive end Myles Garrett follows up dominant debut with another two sacks.
FINALLY. It was totally worth the wait to see Garrett make his debut as he was made an impact from the get-go on the field.
In just 19 snaps, Garrett recorded two sacks and influenced other plays. He was noticeably limping at times due to an ankle injury but gutted it out until late in the second half. Garrett dicussed his injury after the game and a key goal he has in mind going forward. His playing time is expected to increase moving forward, starting with this week against the Texans.
Houston has allowed the most sacks in the NFL this year with 20, according to ESPN. Stud left tackle Duane Brown is still holding out in hopes of a new contract. Last year’s starting right tackle Derek Newton is still rehabbing from two torn patella tendons suffered last year. This all plays right into Garrett’s hands.
Even if he plays limited snaps, Garrett will be going up against arguably the worst offensive line in football right now. Coming back to Texas, the Texas A&M product is poised for another big day. Two more sacks in Week 6 is certainly not out of the question for Garrett as he continues to get back to full health.
