Myles Garrett has been everything the Browns could ask for after they took him with the first overall pick in 2017. He’s made three all-pro teams, was rookie of the year, and is considered the best defensive end in the national football league.
He’s had some notable incidents, mainly when he tried to kill Steelers’ quarterback Mason Rudolph. But, other than that, he’s been a model franchise player. Today, however, could really throw a wrench in his season.

That is not good for the Browns, who can ill-afford to have their star miss time. It’s good that injuries are not life-threatening, but even something like whiplash could cause issues for his availability.
The NFL world reacts
This is a big story in the NFL and many people are reacting.

This Browns fan is putting things into perspective correctly. That’s something that Browns fans have struggled with lately.
Praying Myles Garrett is ok. A lot of people (myself included) instinctively start thinking about how this will affect the Browns season.
He and the other passenger are alive after the car flipped several times.
That’s all that matters.

This seems ironic now.

Hopefully Garrett is okay and ready to play this weekend.
