Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was involved in a single-car crash Monday afternoon following a practice session in Berea, according to Ohio State Highway Patrol officials.
Garrett attended practice in Berea on Monday morning. After leaving the facility, Garrett reportedly crashed his 2021 Porsche near Wadsworth while driving south on State Road near Sharon Copley Road. The car went off the right side of the road, and the vehicle flipped several times before coming to a rest, according to OSHP.
The cause of the crash – which occurred around 3 p.m. on Monday – is unknown at this time. Neither alcohol nor drugs are factors in the crash, according to OSHP.
Garrett and a female passenger were taken to a nearby hospital and have non-threatening injuries. Both were wearing seatbelts, according to highway patrol, and Garrett’s injuries were reported as “minor.”
“Myles Garrett was involved in a one-car accident this afternoon after leaving the practice facility,” the Browns released a statement Monday. “He suffered non-life threatening injuries, was transported to a nearby hospital and we are in the process of gathering more information.”
There is no word yet on if the accident will impact Garrett’s on-field status. The Browns’ next game will be in Atlanta on Sunday, Oct. 2.
