It’s since been confirmed that Myles “swerved to avoid an animal on a wet road and overcorrected” before his car flipped. NFL Networker insider Tom Pelissero also confirmed that the footballer’s been released.
#Browns star Myles Garrett was discharged from the hospital Monday night, per source.
More tests coming. The good news is Garrett’s injuries aren’t life-threatening. He swerved to avoid an animal on a wet road and overcorrected. Car flipped multiple times. Could’ve been worse.

No word if he will play this week but hopefully he is resting and taking care of himself in the aftermath.
