“Firstly – and most importantly – we are grateful that Miles, his passenger and no one else were seriously injured in yesterday’s car crash,” the Browns said in a statement Tuesday evening. “Following a physical examination today, our team doctors at university hospitals concluded that Miles has a shoulder and bicep sprain, minor lacerations, and several bumps and bruises on various other parts of his body.

“We are currently focused on providing Miles with the medical care he needs to return to football. While we hope he returns soon, his readiness for Sunday’s game in Atlanta will be assessed by team doctors during the week.”

Garrett was reportedly driving home from training with a female passenger around 3:00 pm ET Monday afternoon when he crashed. His car reportedly left the right side of the road and rolled over several times before coming to a stop.

Both Garrett and his passenger were wearing seat belts and were taken to the hospital. The accident is currently under investigation, although it was reportedly caused by Garrett swerving to avoid an animal and then “overcorrecting” in the wet.

Garrett is in his sixth season in the league after the Browns took him first overall in 2017. The 26-year-old has just seven tackles and three sacks this season. The Browns, who started the season 2-1, will play the Falcons on Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
