Garrett says he's okay with the decision. He says the original conflict stemmed from a "misunderstanding" about missed practices last week.

"I was sick and I didn't communicate well enough," Garrett said, per ESPN. "That's how it went down. Got to respect how [Stefanski] feels about the situation and his judgment."

Garrett missed multiple practices last week as he dealt with an illness. As a team captain, he called this discipline a "bad look" for the organization.

With their 17-10 loss to the Saints this past weekend, the Browns were mathematically eliminated from the postseason. They'll face off against the Washington Commanders in a Week 17 matchup on Sunday.
