CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns All-Pro defensive end Myles Garrett remains in hospital care with unspecified injuries after he flipped his Porsche in a one-car accident following practice Monday.

The team said Garrett suffered “non life-threatening injuries” in the accident, which happened on a rural road a few hours after the team’s practice. The Browns did not provide any details about Garrett’s injuries or condition.

His agent, Nicole Lynn, said in a statement posted on Twitter that Garrett has been “alert and responsive” while receiving medical attention. She said “we are waiting to learn the extent of his injuries.”

On behalf of Garrett’s family, Lynn thanked medical personnel for getting the 26-year-old and an unidentified female passenger out of his vehicle and transporting him to the hospital.

The Ohio State Highway Patrol said it responded to a rollover crash around 3 p.m. When troopers arrived, they found a gray Porsche 911 Turbo S on the right side of the road with rollover damage.

The crash is under investigation, but the highway patrol said “impairment from alcohol/or drugs is not suspected.” Garrett and his passenger were wearing safety belts.

Several local media outlets posted photos of the extensively damaged sports car, which can reach speeds of 205 m.p.h.

Garrett and his teammates returned to practice Monday at the team’s facility in Berea, Ohio, following a long weekend after their home win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.

The 26-year-old Garrett was in the locker room following the morning workout.

It’s not yet known if Garrett’s playing status for Sunday’s game in Atlanta will be altered by the accident.

Garrett needs just one sack to become the team’s career leader. He was held to two assisted tackles in Thursday’s win over the Steelers. He missed one practice last week with an unspecified neck issue.
