Cleveland Browns Pro-Bowl defensive end Myles Garrett has been listed as a game-time decision for the road game against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Garrett was involved in a single vehicle crash on Monday after leaving the team practice facility and suffered a left shoulder sprain and a right biceps strain as well as cuts and bruises from the crash.
Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski stated after Friday’s practice that the team will see how Garrett responds to treatment over the next two days before deciding on whether he’ll play.
Garrett stated that he wants to play on Sunday against Atlanta and that he is “recovering pretty quickly” from the crash.
A female passenger who was in the vehicle with Garrett was taken to the hospital with what was described as a “minor head injury.” The Ohio State Highway Patrol determined that impairment by drugs or alcohol was not suspected and that Garrett and the woman both were wearing seat belts.
The Browns will be on the road against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, October 2nd, with kick-off set for 1 p.m.
