Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett will remain on the reserve/COVID-19 list and miss his second straight game this Sunday, coach Kevin Stefanski confirmed Monday.

Garrett did not play in Sunday's 22-17 win over the Philadelphia Eagles after testing positive for the virus last week.

Stefanski declined to comment when asked how Garrett is feeling.

The Browns (7-3) take on the Jaguars (1-9) in Jacksonville on Sunday.

Garrett, 24, is tied with Trey Hendrickson of the New Orleans Saints for the NFL lead with 9.5 sacks. He is tied with the Baltimore Ravens' Marlon Humphrey for the league lead with four forced fumbles.

The No. 1 overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, Garrett has 40 sacks, 79 quarterback hits, 135 tackles and 10 forced fumbles in 46 career games (44 starts) for Cleveland.
