Browns’ Garrett injured in one-car accident, status unknown
Myles Garrett, an All-Pro defensive end for the Cleveland Browns, remains hospitalised as physicians evaluate his non-life-threatening injuries sustained in a one-car accident on Monday after practise. The collision occurred on a rural road a few hours after the team’s practise, and as of 11:50 p.m., Garrett was still being evaluated. The Browns have kept quiet about Garrett’s injuries and current status.
Nicole Lynn, Garett’s representative, tweeted that the actor is “awake and responsive” while in the hospital. We haven’t heard the full nature of his injuries yet,” she stated. Lynn, on behalf of Garrett’s family, expressed gratitude to the medical staff who freed the 26-year-old and an unnamed female passenger from the wreckage of their vehicle and took them to the hospital. Lynn texted AP that Garrett had not broken any bones and that he should be released from the hospital on Monday night or Tuesday morning.
There was a rollover incident at roughly 3 p.m., according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol. When the police came, they discovered a severely damaged grey Porsche 911 Turbo S on the right shoulder. The highway patrol has stated that while they are still looking into the crash, they do not suspect that anyone involved was under the influence of alcohol or narcotics. Belts were in use by both Garrett and his passenger.
Photos of the wrecked sports car, which can travel at speeds of up to 205 miles per hour, were published by multiple local news agencies. After a lengthy weekend celebrating their 29-17 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers at home on Thursday night, Garrett and his teammates were back at work on Monday at the team’s facilities in Berea, Ohio. After his morning workout, 26-year-old Garrett headed to the changing room. It’s unclear if Garrett’s accident will affect his ability to participate in Sunday’s game in Atlanta. Just one sack and Garrett will have the most in franchise history. In Thursday’s victory over the Steelers, he was only involved in two assisted tackles. Last week, he had to miss one session due to a neck injury. Garrett, one of the NFL’s best players, was taken first overall by the Browns in 2017. Last year, he led the club with 16 sacks, giving him a total of 61 1/2 in 71 games.
As of now, Garret has three sacks and a forced fumble on the season. The three-time All-Pro is frequently subjected to double and even triple teams from opposing blockers. When Cleveland lost end Jadeveon Clowney to an ankle injury last week, the Steelers pounced on the opportunity to focus more on Garrett. Clowney did not participate in Monday’s practise but has not been declared out for the Falcons just yet.
