Reports reveal that Garrett avoided an animal before going off-road, and his vehicle flipped multiple times.
In a statement released yesterday, the team confirmed that he suffered from a shoulder strain, biceps strain, minor lacerations, and some bumps and bruises.
They also clarified that Garrett did not suffer any fractures and was cleared from concussion protocol.
Aside from his companion. no other individuals were involved in the accident.
However, the incident’s severity makes it likely for the three-time All-Pro to miss their Week 4 game against the Atlanta Falcons.
But safety John Johnson III isn’t ruling out his teammate’s return.
John Johnson III said he would probably just take it easy if he was Myles Garrett, but wouldn’t be surprised if he plays on Sunday. #Browns

Cleveland.com sports writer Hayden Grove tweeted, “John Johnson III said he would probably just take it easy if he was Myles Garrett, but wouldn’t be surprised if he plays on Sunday. #Browns.”
Taking a rest is the best option for Garrett, and returning before he is 100 percent ready might only aggravate his condition.
But Garrett’s strength can lead to his quick recovery in time for their game versus the Falcons.
