Cleveland Browns Pro Bowl defensive end Myles Garrett was benched at the start of the game against the New Orleans Saints, for what Head Coach Kevin Stefanski stated as a team issue.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, however, Garrett was disciplined for lack of communication last week after missing two practices with a cold. In all reality, Garrett was sick and did not call off from work.
In the real world, that would earn anyone a write-up at their job or some type of disciplinary action.
