CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett has been released from the hospital following a single-car crash Monday afternoon, a source tells News 5.

Garrett's agent confirmed Monday night that he did not suffer any broken bones in the crash.

Garrett attended football practice in Berea on Monday morning.

After he left the facility, seemingly on his way home, Garrett crashed his 2021 Porsche near Wadsworth while driving south on State Road near Sharon Copley Road.

According to Ohio State Highway Patrol, an unidentified female passenger was in the car.

According to law enforcement officials, both Garrett and the female passenger were taken to a nearby hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
