CLEVELAND _ Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was taken to hospital after an accident in which his Porsche was overturned on Monday.
The accident happened after the team’s training. The Browns did not specify the nature of the injuries, but they said Garrett’s life is not threatened.
The club is gathering more information.
The Ohio Highway Patrol responded to a call for a rollover car around 3:00 p.m.
Garrett and an unidentified passenger were taken to the hospital, authorities said. Impaired driving was not suspected. Garrett and the passenger were wearing their seat belts.
The team returned to practice after a home win against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. 26-year-old Garrett needs just one sack to become the team’s all-time point guard.
Garrett was drafted first overall in 2017. Last season, he set a Browns mark with 16 sacks in a single campaign. In 71 games in the NFL, he has 61 and a half sacks.
The Browns (2-1) will play again Sunday afternoon in Atlanta (1-2).
