No. 1 overall pick Myles Garrett missed the final day of minicamp Thursday with a left foot injury that isn't expected to be serious. The pass rusher, however, was seen in a walking boot on Friday.

Garrett was spotted at the Cleveland Airport with the boot on his left foot, per The Plain Dealer. Photo evidence:

We're not going to make a mountain out of this molehill. The boot could very well be precautionary for a player who had a minor tweak to a previously injured foot -- the defensive end dealt with a high-ankle sprain during his final season at Texas A&M.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport said he was told Thursday that Garrett was "fine." Neither coach Hue Jackson, nor defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, sounded worried about Garrett's injury lingering into training camp. The first-round pick has the next six weeks to make sure he's completely healed before the real work starts.

With a dearth of NFL news during this down time in the NFL calendar, updates on Garrett's left foot will be of interest over the next few weeks. But until we hear otherwise, the boot is simply a boot.

The Browns have not provided an update on the injury, Garrett is not expected to miss a significant amount of time.

Fellow rookie defensive lineman Larry Ogunjobi saw what happened but doesn't think it will keep Garrett down long.

"It sucks, especially when he's one of your good friends,'' Ogunjobi told Cleveland.com of seeing Garrett fall to his knees and grab his foot after a would-be sack of Brock Osweiler. "I've known Myles for just a short period of time, but we've connected and you know how good of a person he is because he's humble and he's hungry and really wants to be great. So you know it sucks, but it's part of the game. It's part of the process and you know he's going to bounce back.''

UPDATE: Cleveland.com reported on Saturday afternoon that Garrett has been diagnosed with a lateral foot sprain. He is expected to be ready to go at the start of training camp in late July. The fact that nothing is broken and there is no structural damage is good news for both Garrett and the Browns.

Garrett and the Browns kick off the season at home vs. Pittsburgh on Sep. 10.
