Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett “felt a pop” in his left shoulder during Sunday’s 29-17 loss to the Denver Broncos and left the game in a sling.

He told reporters after the game that the severity of his injury isn’t clear. When or how he sustained the injury also wasn’t immediately clear. Garrett will undergo an MRI on Monday.

“I’ve played through things that should have sidelined me before,” Garrett told reporters in the Browns’ locker room. “I’m gonna continue to fight and gonna do what’s best for the team and for myself. We have high hopes for this season and what we’re gonna do. Nothing like this is gonna hold us back or me back.”

He finished Sunday’s game with the injury.

“I’m not gonna come out unless it’s falling off,” Garrett said.

This injury’s a potential blow for Garrett and a Browns team that has already lost All-Pro running back Nick Chubb (knee) and quarterback Deshaun Watson (shoulder) to season-ending injuries. Garrett was the betting favorite to win NFL Defensive Player of the Year honors as of Sunday.

A four-time All-Pro and Pro Bowler, Garrett’s in the midst of a career season with a league-leading 13 sacks through 11 games. He has also tallied 30 tackles, four forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

The Browns entered Sunday on a three-game win streak and fell to 7-4 with Sunday’s loss. They remain in the playoff hunt despite the injuries, but face a tough road to the postseason without their starting quarterback and running back, and the potential loss of their best defender. They have remaining games against the Rams, Jaguars, Bears, Texans, Jets and Bengals.
