Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was involved in a single-car collision after practice on Monday. His Porsche flipped several times after swerving to avoid hitting an animal on the road.
The team released a statement on Garrett’s injury, detailing that the two-time Pro Bowler suffered “a shoulder sprain, biceps strain” and several lacerations as a result of the crash near the city of Wadsworth.
The statement also noted that Garrett’s availability for Week 4’s matchup against the Falcons has not been determined.
Cleveland’s statement read:
“First-and most importantly — we are thankful that Myles, his passenger and no other parties were seriously injured in the single-car accident yesterday. After medical evaluation today, our team doctors at University Hospitals have concluded that Myles has sustained a shoulder sprain, biceps strain, minor lacerations as well as some bumps and bruises to various other body parts. Myles didn’t suffer any fractures and has also cleared concussion protocol.
“Currently, our focus is on providing Myles the medical care needed for him to return to football activity. Although we hope to have him back soon, his availability for Sunday’s game in Atlanta will be evaluated by team doctors throughout the week.”
Body camera footage from responding authorities was also released on Tuesday. The video showed Garrett sitting on the ground as he was evaluated for injuries before being accompanied to an ambulance and transported to a nearby hospital.
Photos of Garrett’s Porsche showed significant damage sustained from the car’s barrel rolling. Thankfully, Garrett injuries were deemed non-life-threatening.
