Twenty-nine things to know about Week 4 injuries

Myles Garrett could make his NFL debut this weekend.

The No. 1 overall pick was limited in practice for the second straight day on Friday and is officially listed as questionable heading into Sunday's tilt versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Coach Hue Jackson added he would huddle with the team's medical staff to determine whether Garrett can play this week. If Garrett makes his debut, he would likely be on a limited snap count.

The athletic pass rusher took part in his first practices this week since sustaining a high-ankle sprain before the start of the season.

Looking to get off the schneid after a 0-3 start, the Browns could use Garrett off the edge to help disrupt Andy Dalton on Sunday.

Jackson added that Jamie Collins (concussion) has been ruled out. Defensive tackle Danny Shelton (calf) and wide receiver Sammie Coates (hamstring) are both questionable after sitting out practice this week.

Other injuries we're tracking around the league:

  1. Many of the Washington Redskins' key players are listed as questionable for their Monday night matchup with the Chiefs: running back Rob Kelley (rib), linebacker Mason Foster (shoulder), tight end Jordan Reed (sternum), safety D.J. Swearinger (hamstring), wide receiver Jamison Crowder (hamstring) and linebacker Will Compton (ankle).
  1. Kansas City Chiefs coach Andy Reid told reporters Saturday that linebacker Dee Ford (back) and center Mitch Morse (foot) will not play Monday. Eric Fisher (back) meanwhile is a game-time decision. Linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (groin) is listed as questionable.
