According to NFL insider Tom Pelissero, Garrett “swerved to avoid an animal” and “overcorrected” before his Porsche was crashed on a Medina County roadway after Monday’s Cleveland Browns practice.

Pelissero also said Garrett was released from the hospital on Monday night.

In 911 audio released to 19 News, one caller told dispatchers the woman involved in the crash said her head was hurting while sitting on the ground.

Another 911 caller told dispatchers said he was unsure what happened but said the car ‘lost control’.

Garrett has not shared anything publicly about the incident, but his agent said in a statement on social media that the 26-year-old was “alert and responsive” after the crash.

A passenger in the car with Garrett also sustained non-life-threatening injuries, according to the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Investigators said drug or alcohol use are not believed to be factors in the crash.
