Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been released from hospital after he was involved in a car crash in Sharon Township, about 40 miles south of Cleveland, his agent Nicole Lynn confirmed to CNN on Tuesday.

Garrett and a passenger were transported to the hospital with what Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant Ray Santiago called “non-life-threatening injuries.”

Just before 3 p.m. on Monday, troopers responded to a report of a rollover crash and injury, Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant Ray Santiago told CNN.

“When troopers arrived on scene, they discovered a gray Porsche 911 Turbo S off the right side of the roadway with rollover damage,” Santiago said.

The Cleveland Browns said Tuesday Garrett sustained a shoulder sprain and a biceps strain in addition to minor lacerations, bumps and bruises. Garrett has also cleared the NFL’s concussion protocol, according to the team, but his status for Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons is unknown at this time.

“Currently, our focus is on providing Myles the medical care needed for him to return to football activity,” said Andrew Berry, Browns executive vice president and general manager. “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.”

Garrett’s agent Lynn tweeted that the player “has been alert and responsive” following the “one-car accident.”

“The Garrett family would like to thank the medical personnel that got Myles and his passenger out of the vehicle and safely transported to the hospital,” Lynn said in the statement.

CNN has reached out to the Cleveland Browns for more information.

The crash is still under investigation, Santiago said, adding that both the football player and his passenger were wearing seat belts and impairment from drugs or alcohol is not suspected.

Garrett is a three-time Pro Bowler and was named first team All-Pro each of the last two seasons.

After defeating the Pittsburgh Steelers 29-17 on Thursday, the Browns are scheduled to play in Atlanta against the Falcons this upcoming Sunday.
