BEREA, Ohio — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett was subpoenaed for “improper control of his motor vehicle” following Monday’s only car accident, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said in a statement to ESPN.
Garrett was also driving at an “unsafe speed for the type of road” he was on, which contributed to the accident, highway patrol said. According to the accident report released to ESPN, Garrett was driving 65 mph on a 45 mph speed limit road.
The Star Pass Rusher suffered a sprained left shoulder and a strained right bicep, as well as cuts and bruises after his vehicle went off the curb and overturned. Garrett also complained of pain in his right hand while speaking to officers, according to body cam footage provided to ESPN by highway patrol.
Garrett was home to rest on Wednesday but was back at the Browns’ training facility on Thursday. Defensive coordinator Joe Woods said Garrett would not practice Thursday.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski hasn’t ruled out Garrett playing the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday.
Garrett, 26, was discharged from a hospital in Akron, Ohio, Monday night after the crash and has cleared the concussion log, according to the team.
Garrett crashed his 2021 Porsche near Wadsworth, Ohio, and crashed into a ditch after going off the road, according to highway patrol. His car then crashed into a fire hydrant before overturning several times. A passenger in the vehicle was also taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
Highway Patrol reiterated that drug or alcohol interference was not suspected and that Garrett and the woman were both wearing seat belts.
