All-Pro Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was injured in a car accident after practice on Monday, according to multiple media reports.
Garrett suffered non-life-threatening injuries after the single-vehicle crash near Cleveland. He and a female passenger were both transported to a local hospital.
“Myles Garrett was involved in a one-car accident this afternoon after leaving the practice facility,” the Browns said in a statement. “He suffered non-life threatening injuries, was transported to a local hospital and we are in the process of gathering more information.”
Garrett was driving a 2021 Porsche on State Road near Sharon Copley Road near the Browns practice facility in Berea, Ohio, when he went off the side of the road, filling the vehicle over several times, Ohio State Police officials told News 5 Cleveland.
The Browns play against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. It’s unclear if Garrett’s injury will impact his availability for that game or the practices leading up to it. Cleveland’s next full-squad practice session is scheduled for Wednesday.
Garrett has been a first-team All-Pro defensive end in each of the last two season and has been named to the AFC Pro Bowl team three times. The No. 1 overall pick out of Texas A&M in 2017, Garrett has 61.5 sacks, 63 tackles for loss and 12 forced fumbles in 71 career games.
Garrett had two tackles and a quarterback hit in the Browns’ 29-17 win over the Steelers on Thursday night in Cleveland.
