Browns’ pass rusher Myles Garrett was hospitalized after being involved in a single-vehicle accident after training Monday afternoon, his agent, Nicole Lynn, confirmed Monday evening.
“While we wait to learn the extent of his injuries, he has been alert and responsive,” Lynn said in a statement. “The Garrett family would like to thank the medical personnel who removed Myles and his passenger from the vehicle and took them safely to the hospital.”
Like Garrett, the other passenger in the car suffered injuries described as non-life-threatening. Both passengers were wearing seat belts at the time of the accident. The cause of the accident is not yet known.
According to the Ohio State Highway Patrol, Garrett’s vehicle “overturned several times before coming to a stop,” via News 5 Cleveland. The OSHP has stated that neither alcohol nor drugs were a factor in the crash. Traffic charges are currently pending.
Garrett, 26, is in the midst of his sixth season with the Browns. Garrett, the first overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, is a three-time Pro Bowler and two-time All-Pro. He had three sacks in the first three games of the 2022 season while helping the Browns set a 2-1 record.
This is a story in development. We will provide an update on Garrett’s status, as well as any information regarding the accident, as it becomes available.
