It’s all fun and Pro Bowl Games until someone gets hurt.

The NFL’s new all-star format was met with some polarizing reactions over the weekend. Some were entertained with the way the new events and mini-games events shook out, while others were less than enthused. Count Browns pass rusher Myles Garrett in the latter group.

According to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, Garrett suffered a dislocated toe during the weekend’s Pro Bowl events, which seemingly occurred during the “Gridiron Gauntlet” obstacle course on Sunday.

Overall, though, it’s a positive diagnosis for Garrett: X-rays were negative, per reports, meaning the pass rusher avoided anything that may keep him out an extended period of time.

Thankfully, Garrett — and everyone else competing in this weekend’s Pro Bowl Games — avoided major injury. In 1999, Patriots rookie Robert Edwards suffered a major knee injury that would keep him sidelined until 2002. He would only attempt 20 more rushes in his career.

The 2022 Pro Bowl Games were an attempt by the NFL to reinvigorate the event, which has lost plenty of luster in recent years. The Gridiron Gauntlet event that Garrett was injured in was one eight events that culminated in a trio of flag football games.

Free agent running Josh Jacobs was among those displeased with the new event, keeping it plain with his criticism: “This s— is stupid,” he said.

Garrett may feel the same way after the injury to the appendage.
