Myles Garrett: Cleveland Browns defensive end released from hospital after car accident


Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been released from hospital after being involved in a car accident in Sharon Township, about 40 miles south of Cleveland, his agent Nicole Lynn confirmed to CNN on Tuesday.

Garrett and a passenger were taken to hospital with what Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. Ray Santiago called “non-life threatening injuries.”

Just before 3 p.m. Monday, soldiers responded to a report of a rollover accident and injuries, Ohio State Highway Patrol Sgt. Ray Santiago told CNN.

“When soldiers arrived on the scene, they discovered a gray Porsche 911 Turbo S on the right side of the roadway with rollover damage,” Santiago said.

The extent of Garrett’s injuries are not known at this time, but his agent Lynn tweeted that the player “was alert and responsive” following the “car accident”.

“The Garrett family would like to thank the medical personnel who removed Myles and his passenger from the vehicle and transported them safely to the hospital,” Lynn said in the statement.

CNN has contacted the Cleveland Browns for more information.

The accident is still under investigation, Santiago said, adding that the soccer player and his passenger were wearing seat belts and that drug or alcohol impairment is not suspected.

Garrett is a three-time Pro Bowler and was named first-team All-Pro each of the past two seasons.

After beating the Pittsburgh Steelers 29-17 on Thursday, the Browns are scheduled to play in Atlanta against the Falcons next Sunday.
