BEREA, Ohio (WKBN) – Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett is officially listed as questionable for Sunday’s game in Atlanta.
Fellow defensive end Jadeveon Clowney is also listed as questionable for the game.
Neither player has been ruled out, and they could potentially play in week four.
Garrett met with reporters on Friday for the first time since his single-car accident on Monday.
“I am feeling a lot better,” Garrett said. “I am glad that everything worked out in a positive light with my passenger and I we are both healthy and walking around. Just blessed to live another day. As far as Sunday, it is a game-time decision up to (Head) Coach (Kevin Stefanski) and the training staff and all of us coming together to make the right decision for me and moving forward.”
He also thanked first-responders: “I would like to thank the Ohio Highway Patrol. I would like to thank the Medina County’s Sheriff Office. I would like to thank all of the first responders who were able to get to me and my passenger and came so quickly and helped us get the medical attention that we needed.”
Garrett told media members that he is relieved to have survived the crash. He suffered a sprained shoulder, strained biceps, cuts, and also a ruptured blood vessel in his left eye.
“I am recovering pretty quickly, but both (shoulder and biceps) have given me some pain here and there. I wake up each morning feeling better.”
Garrett says the accident will change his driving behavior moving forward, and that being back in the team facility has helped his recovery.
“It has been amazing seeing these guys just so happy and excited to see me and in good spirits and good health, and seeing these guys just ready to rock. Being around football is something I love and being around these guys who I have grown with and come to know and be able to grind with for these last few months and few years with some of these guys, it is just a great feeling,” added Garret.
The Browns and Falcons will kickoff Sunday at 1 p.m. The game will be televised locally on WKBN-27.
