Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett sustained non-life threatening injuries as a result of a rollover car crash that occurred after team practice. The Browns issued an official statement, but refused to give any additional details on the extent of Garrett’s injuries and health status.

“Myles Garrett was involved in a one-car accident this afternoon after leaving the practice facility. He suffered non-life threatening injuries, was transported to a local hospital and we are in the process of gathering more information.”

Garrett was discharged from the hospital on Monday evening, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero. Pelissero also says that the defensive end will undergo additional testing as a precaution. Garrett’s agent, Nicole Lynn, posted a statement on social media. Lynn highlights that her client has been both alert and responsive and extends a thanks to the medical personnel that extracted Garrett & his female passenger from his vehicle safely.

The crash occurred around 3:00 p.m eastern time. Officials say that the All-Pro was making the drive home from team practice when his Porsche ended up veering off course to the far right. Pelissero says that Garrett was trying to avoid hitting an animal while on wet road, and his car flipped several times as a result before ultimately coming to a halt. Traffic charges are reportedly pending, but neither drugs nor alcohol were believed to have been a factor in the crash. Garrett’s status for week four against the Atlanta Falcons remains questionable.
