BEREA, Ohio — Browns rookie defensive end Myles Garrett has been placed in concussion protocol.

The No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL draft reported to the team's facility complaining of concussion-like symptoms on Tuesday morning. Because of the timing, it's unlikely he'll play in Sunday's game at London against the Minnesota Vikings.

Garrett missed Cleveland's first four games with a sprained right ankle. The 21-year-old has four sacks in three games and has given Cleveland's defense a huge lift.

The concussion is the latest injury for Garrett, who also suffered a foot sprain during spring minicamp.

Garrett's injury is another setback for the winless Browns, who lost Pro Bowl tackle Joe Thomas for the remainder of the season with a torn triceps. Thomas had been on the field for more than 10,000 consecutive plays before getting hurt in Sunday's loss to Tennessee. He had surgery on Tuesday.
