Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries following a car crash, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.
Just before 3 p.m., troopers responded to a report of a crash and injuries in Sharon Township, about 40 miles south of Cleveland, Ohio State Highway Patrol Sergeant Ray Santiago told CNN.
“When troopers arrived on scene, they found a gray Porsche 911 Turbo S with damage on the right side of the roadway,” Santiago said.
Garrett and a passenger in the car were taken to the hospital with what Santiago called “non-life-threatening injuries.” The extent of Garrett’s injuries is not yet known, but his agent, Nicole Lynn, tweeted that the player is “alert and responsive” following a “one-car accident.”
“The Garrett family would like to thank the paramedics who extricated Miles and his passenger from the vehicle and transported them safely to the hospital,” Lynn said in a statement.
CNN reached out to the Cleveland Browns for more information.
The accident is still under investigation, Santiago said, adding that neither the soccer player nor the passenger were wearing seat belts and were not suspected of being impaired by drugs or alcohol.
Garrett is a three-time Pro Bowler and was named first-team All-Pro the past two seasons.
After a 29-17 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday, the Browns are set to take on the Falcons in Atlanta on Sunday.
