Myles Garrett Listed As Questionable For Cleveland Browns' Game Sunday In Atlanta

Garrett has been selected to his fifth Pro Bowl, missing only two seasons since entering the league in 2017. Garrett has 14 sacks and four forced fumbles on the season and is widely considered to be the favorite for the Defensive Player of the Year award. He is tied with DT/DE Bob Gain (five) and NT Michael Dean Perry (five) for the most Pro Bowl selections by a Browns defensive player. Garrett is the only player in the NFL to record at least 14 sacks in each of the past three seasons (2021-23) and the only player to record at least 10 sacks in each of the past six seasons (2018-23).

Bitonio’s selection is his sixth, he has been selected to the Pro Bowl every year since 2018. Bitonio has had a strong season for the Browns in 2023, anchoring an offensive line that has seen almost every starter sidelined with injury at one point or another. He is tied for the fourth-most selections in team history, trailing on Pro Football Hall of Famers T Joe Thomas (10), RB Jim Brown (9) and T/K Lou Groza (9). Bitonio is the first Browns guard to be named to six consecutive Pro Bowls since Pro Football Hall of Famer Gene Hickerson made six straight (1966-71).
