Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett was released from a hospital late Monday night after he was injured when he rolled over his Porsche while driving on a rural Ohio road following practice. Garrett suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the one-car wreck, per the AP. He'd been taken to the hospital, along with an unidentified female passenger, after crashing around 3pm Monday—about two hours after practice ended. The extent of Garrett's injuries isn't yet known, and it wasn't immediately clear if the All-Pro will play Sunday when the Browns visit the Atlanta Falcons.

Garrett's agent, Nicole Lynn, said Garrett didn't break any bones. Lynn said Garrett was "alert and responsive" while receiving medical care. The condition and status of the female passenger hasn't been disclosed. Ohio State Highway Patrol said in a release that troopers arrived at the scene of the accident Monday to find Garrett's damaged car on the side of the road after it appeared to flip over several times. Garrett had been driving on State Road in Sharon Township while traveling south after he left the team's headquarters in Berea, Ohio.

The highway patrol doesn't suspect impairment from drugs or alcohol. Garrett and his passenger were both wearing seatbelts in his Porsche 911 Turbo S. The crash is still under investigation. One of the NFL's most dominant defensive players, Garrett has recorded 61 1/2 sacks in 71 games. He needs one sack to pass Clay Matthews for the team's career record. The Browns drafted Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick in 2017. (Garrett previously made headlines for an ugly on-field incident.)
