This was indicated by his agent, Nicole Lynn, on Tuesday. The representative also claimed that the star player did not suffer any broken bones and was “alert and responsive” when receiving medical attention.
Around 3 p.m. Monday, Garrett’s Porsche 911 Turbo S was damaged on a road in Ohio. The area police department said an investigation is underway, but they do not suspect alcohol or drug impaired driving in the case.
For now, the 26-year-old’s presence in Sunday’s matchup against the Falcons in Atlanta is uncertain.
In three games this season, the first pick in the 2017 draft has made three quarterback sacks and seven tackles, in addition to causing a turnover.
Huge loss for the Giants
Elsewhere in the NFL, New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard will miss the remainder of the campaign as he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his knee on Monday night, head coach Brian Daboll confirmed.
Shepard fell in action late in the game against the Dallas Cowboys, a 23-16 loss. He complained of pain completing his run without being hit by a rival. The 29-year-old left the field on a cart, unable to walk properly.
The loss of the receiver could hurt the Giants, third in the National Conference East Division. He had 154 yards and a touchdown on 13 receptions this year.
