Myles Garrett released from hospital after flipping car in crash

Cleveland Browns All-Pro defensive end Myles Garrett has been released from hospital after he flipped his Porsche in a one-car accident following practice on Monday.

The team said Garrett suffered “non life-threatening injuries” in the accident, which happened on a rural road a few hours after the team’s practice. His agent, Nicole Lynn, told ESPN her client did not break any bones in the crash.

Lynn, said in a statement posted on Twitter that Garrett has been “alert and responsive” while receiving medical attention.

On behalf of Garrett’s family, Lynn thanked medical personnel for getting the 26-year-old and an unidentified female passenger out of his vehicle and transporting him to the hospital.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said it responded to a rollover crash around 3pm. When troopers arrived, they found a gray Porsche 911 Turbo S on the right side of the road with rollover damage. The crash is still under investigation, but the highway patrol said “impairment from alcohol/or drugs is not suspected.” Garrett and his passenger were wearing safety belts.

Garrett and his teammates returned to practice Monday at the team’s facility in Berea, Ohio, following a long weekend after their home win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.

Garrett was in the locker room following the morning workout. It’s not yet known if Garrett’s playing status for Sunday’s game in Atlanta will be altered by the accident.

Garrett needs just one sack to become the team’s career leader. He was held to two assisted tackles in Thursday’s win over the Steelers. He missed one practice last week with an unspecified neck issue.

One of the NFL’s most dominant players, Garrett was selected with the No 1 overall pick by Cleveland in 2017. He set a team single-season record with 16 sacks last season, and has recorded 61.5 sacks in 71 games.
