After a terrifying single-car collision on Monday in which Myles Garrett, a defensive end for the Browns, witnessed his car roll over three times, has been released from the hospital. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reported on Monday night that Garrett had left the hospital.
According to the report, his injuries are “not life-threatening,” but additional testing will be performed to ascertain the depth of the injuries. The 26-year-old suffered shoulder and biceps strains as well as multiple lacerations in the crash, according to the team. Furthermore, it is still unknown when he will return to the football field.
The Brown have released a statement addressing the condition of the star defensive end. “First — and most importantly — we are thankful that Myles, his passengers and no other parties were seriously injured in the single-car accident yesterday,” the team said.

“After medical evaluation today, our team doctors at University Hospital have concluded that Myles has sustained a shoulder sprain, a 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.”
The Ohio State Highway Patrol informed NFL.com on Monday that Garrett and a female passenger were engaged in a collision after leaving the team’s practice facility in Berea, Ohio, at roughly 3 p.m. local time. According to the OSHP, Garrett was awake and conscious when police arrived on the scene, and there was no indication of intoxication. Fortunately, the three-time Pro Bowl defensive end and the female passenger were saved by the seatbelts.
