CLEVELAND (AP) Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett was released from a hospital late Monday night after he was injured when he rolled over his Porsche while driving on a rural road following practice.

Garrett suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the one-car wreck. He had been taken to the hospital, along with an unidentified female passenger, after crashing around 3 p.m. - about 2 hours after practice ended.

Garrett's playing status for the upcoming game is unknown. The Browns visit the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Cleveland's players don't practice Tuesday.

His agent, Nicole Lynn, said Garrett didn't break any bones. Lynn said Garrett was ''alert and responsive'' while receiving medical care.

Ohio State Highway Patrol said in a release that troopers arrived at the scene of the accident to find Garrett's damaged car on the side of the road after it appeared to flip over several times. Garrett had been driving on State Road in Sharon Township while traveling south after he left the team's headquarters in Berea, Ohio.

The highway patrol doesn't suspect impairment from drugs or alcohol. Garrett and his passenger were both wearing seat belts in his Porsche 911 Turbo S. The crash is still under investigation.

One of the NFL's most dominant defensive players, the 26-year-old Garrett has recorded 61 1/2 sacks in 71 games. He needs one sack to pass Clay Matthews for the team's career record.

The Browns drafted Garrett with the No. 1 overall pick in 2017.

Player Notes
Cooper Rush Sep 27 8:40am ET
Cooper Rush

The defense of the New York Giants was unable to slow down the Cooper Rush-led offense of the Dallas Cowboys in Week 3. Rush completed 21 of his 31 attempts for 215 yards and a touchdown while the Giants failed to record a sack on the backup signal-caller. While the Cowboys didn't have gaudy numbers through the air, the Giants had no answer for the one-two punch of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard. New York's defense allowed 178 rushing yards and a touchdown to Elliott and Pollard in the Monday night loss. It was nice to see Kayvon Thibodeaux make his NFL debut in Week 3, but the defense of the Giants doesn't look like a well-rounded unit yet.

Daniel Bellinger Sep 27 8:30am ET
Daniel Bellinger

New York Giants tight end Daniel Bellinger was able to catch four of his five targets for 40 yards in the Week 3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football. The rookie tight end saw the most targets of his young career after catching a touchdown on his first career target in Week 2 versus the Carolina Panthers. The Georgia product could carve out a decent-sized role on the Giants due to the lack of receiving options New York has right now. That being said, it's tough to trust Daniel Jones at the quarterback position. If you're in desperate need of a tight end that could see an increased workload throughout the season, you could do a lot worse than Bellinger.

Graham Gano

New York Giants kicker Graham Gano made three-of-four field-goal attempts in the 23-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in Week 3. The veteran kicker had his first field-goal attempt of the night blocked by the Cowboys, so it wasn't his fault for missing the kick. The 35-year-old kicker would proceed to make his next three field goals, including two 50-plus-yard field goals. After failing to attempt a single field goal in Week 1, Gano has now made three or more field goals in two straight weeks, making him an intriguing kicker in fantasy football moving forward.

Richie James Sep 27 8:20am ET
Richie James

New York Giants wide receiver Richie James recorded four receptions for 36 yards on five targets in the Week 3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. With the current wide receiver situation on the Giants, the former seventh-round pick has been one of the most consistent options for Daniel Jones to target. In the first three weeks, James has hauled in 14 of his 17 targets for 146 yards. The veteran wideout has also added six rushing yards on two carries to begin the season. It remains to be seen what the 27-year-old wide receiver's role will look like once Kadarius Toney and Wan'Dale Robinson are fully healthy. Given the lack of a ceiling for James, he's not a very enticing wideout to target in fantasy football.

Kenny Golladay Sep 27 8:20am ET
Kenny Golladay

New York Giants wide receiver Kenny Golladay had another forgettable outing in Week 3 as he finished with zero receptions on three targets in the 23-16 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Despite the Giants paying the former third-round pick a lucrative contract, he continues to see a minimal role in the offense due to his failure to adjust to the new scheme. When Golladay got an opportunity to make plays against the Cowboys, he failed to make the most of it as he had a crucial drop on third down on one of his targets. The expensive wide receiver has voiced his displeasure in his current role, but it appears that both sides are headed for a divorce at some point, so he shouldn't be on anyone's radar in fantasy football right now.

Saquon Barkley Sep 27 8:10am ET
Saquon Barkley

New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley rushed for 81 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries in the team's Week 3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The former first-round pick also brought in all four of his targets for 45 yards. It was a slow start for Barkley, but then the star running back would break off a 36-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter to give the Giants a 13-6 lead. While New York would fail to hold onto the lead, it wasn't due to the efforts of the 25-year-old running back. Even with the Giants not having a dynamic offense, Barkley is seeing a healthy workload and he continues to prove that he's back to being an RB1 in 2022.

Daniel Jones Sep 27 8:00am ET
Daniel Jones

New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 20 of his 37 attempts for 196 yards and an interception while also rushing for 79 yards on nine carries in the Week 3 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. The former first-round pick now has three consecutive games to start the season where he's had fewer than 200 passing yards for the Giants. While New York's wide receiver room isn't a dynamic group, Jones has failed to show many improvements in his game to begin the season. Even though it was a positive sign seeing the 25-year-old quarterback make plays with his legs, his lack of passing production and turnover concerns makes him a quarterback to avoid in fantasy football right now.

Dak Prescott Sep 27 1:10am ET
Dak Prescott

The Dallas Cowboys defense played well in Week 3's edition of Monday Night Football, helping Dallas win a 23-16 game against the New York Giants. The Dallas defense allowed just 16 points while recording an interception, five sacks, and a blocked field goal. The Cowboys defense continues to play very solid football, and should only improve once the offense improves with the returns of Michael Gallup (knee), Dak Prescott (thumb), and Dalton Schultz (knee) in the following week or two. The Cowboys face the Commanders in Week 4, and should be a solid defense option then.

Jalen Tolbert Sep 27 1:00am ET
Jalen Tolbert

Dallas Cowboys rookie wide receiver Jalen Tolbert was active for the first time in his pro career in Week 3 and made his first NFL catch, gaining four yards. Tolbert was taken in the third round out of South Alabama, but Cowboys coaches clearly hadn't been happy with him so far, making him a healthy inactive for the first two games of the season. Finally active for Week 3, he wasn't able to draw more than two targets, despite two of the Cowboys projected top pass catchers, Michael Gallup (knee) and Dalton Schultz (knee) being out of the game. There's obviously upside with Tolbert, but he's looking like much more of a deep dynasty stash than someone who will contribute in any redraft formats.

Brett Maher Sep 27 1:00am ET
Brett Maher

Dallas Cowboys kicker Brett Maher made five kicks in a Week 3 win over the New York Giants. Maher made three of his four field goal attempts and both of his extra point tries. His long field goal came from 44 yards out and his miss was from 59 yards out. The Cowboys interestingly chose to punt at one point in the first half from what would have been in Maher's range, but MetLife Stadium is notoriously tough to kick in. Still, it was a strong performance from Maher, who has now made six of his seven field goal kicks and all four of his extra points. He's a useful fantasy kicker in leagues that still use them.

Noah Brown Sep 27 12:50am ET
Noah Brown

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Noah Brown was solid once again in a Week 3 win over the New York Giants. Brown was targeted seven times, catching five passes for 54 yards. While it wasn't the career-best game he had in Week 2, this was another strong performance from a guy likely undrafted in many fantasy leagues. With Dak Prescott (thumb) and Michael Gallup (knee) both expected back soon though, Brown's best days may be behind him.

Peyton Hendershot Sep 27 12:50am ET
Peyton Hendershot

Dallas Cowboys rookie tight end Peyton Hendershot caught the first three passes of his career in a Week 3 win over the New York Giants. Forced into a split starting role alongside fellow rookie Jake Ferguson due to a Dalton Schultz (knee) injury, made the best of his chance, catching all three balls that went his way and gaining 43 yards. He soundly outplayed Ferguson, who caught two passes for 13 yards. With Schultz not expected to miss much time, Hendershot can be left on waiver wires in most fantasy formats.

Jake Ferguson Sep 27 12:50am ET
Jake Ferguson

Dallas Cowboys rookie tight end Jake Ferguson made the first two catches of his NFL career in a Week 3 win over the New York Giants. Ferguson split starting duties with fellow rookie Peyton Hendershot due to an injury keeping Dalton Schultz (knee) on the sidelines. Ferguson was targeted three times, making two catches for 13 yards. Meanwhile, Hendershot saw three targets as well, but he caught all three and gained 43 yards. Neither rookie tight end will have much if any fantasy value when Schultz returns, and that could be as soon as Week 4.

CeeDee Lamb Sep 27 12:40am ET
CeeDee Lamb

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb scored a huge touchdown in a Week 3 win over the New York Giants. Lamb made an amazing one-handed catch that we'll see on highlight reels for a long time, but he also made a mind-numbing drop that we'll see on blooper reels for perhaps just as long. In total, he caught eight of his 12 targets for 87 yards and the score. He led the team in targets, catches, and yards, and was the only wide receiver to score a touchdown in the game. Despite the solid performance, it still felt like Lamb once again left a lot of meat on the bone. He has the tools and the opportunity to be an alpha WR1, both in real life and in fantasy, but he just hasn't quite shown it yet through the first three weeks. He'll get a boost once Dak Prescott (thumb) returns to the starting lineup.

Tony Pollard Sep 27 12:30am ET
Tony Pollard

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard had an excellent game in a Week 3 win over the New York Giants. He ran the ball 13 times, gaining 105 yards including a long run of 46 yards. Strangely, he only saw one target in the passing game, and was unable to make the catch. Pollard's 13 carries were behind Ezekiel Elliott's 15, but Elliott only gained 73 yards. He did score the only rushing touchdown in the game for the Cowboys though. Pollard has once again shown to be the better, more explosive Cowboys running back, but he figures to continue splitting backfield time with Elliott, severely limiting the upside of both. Pollard could be a league winner if Elliott gets hurt, though.

Ezekiel Elliott Sep 27 12:30am ET
Ezekiel Elliott

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott scored a touchdown in a Week 3 win over the New York Giants. "Zeke" ran the ball 15 times, gaining 73 yards and scoring on the ground. He also caught his only target for an additional two yards. The Cowboys relied on their running game quite a bit in this one, giving Elliott 15 carries and his backfield mate Tony Pollard 13. Pollard was once again the clearly better back, gaining 105 yards to Elliott's 73 despite two fewer carries. Still, it was Elliott who found the end zone at the end of the day. The two backs will continue to cancel out each other's upside, but both come in as RB2/3 options with solid floors.

Cooper Rush Sep 27 12:20am ET
Cooper Rush

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Cooper Rush led the team to another win in a Week 3 game against the division-rival New York Giants. Rush attempted 31 passes, completing 21 of them for 215 yards and one touchdown. Rush zeroed in on wide receiver CeeDee Lamb again, targeting him with 12 of his passes, but once again showing better chemistry with Noah Brown. With Dak Prescott (thumb) stating that he wouldn't rule himself out for Week 4, Rush's reign as the starter may be coming to an end. He's played well enough to keep the Cowboys from rushing Dak back onto the field though. Still, at most it seems like Rush will get one more start before Prescott returns to his space atop the depth chart.

Parris Campbell Sep 27 12:00am ET
Parris Campbell

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Parris Campbell has seen very little success early in the season. In Week 3, Campbell hauled in both of his targets for 10 yards in the win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Through three games, Campbell has five receptions for 47 yards, which is pretty sad. He was expected to compete for the No. 2 wideout spot, but clearly Campbell isn't going to be heavily involved in this passing attack. Fantasy managers should be able to find a more reliable option in basically all fantasy formats.

Alec Pierce Sep 27 12:00am ET
Alec Pierce

Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Alec Pierce made his return to the field during the Week 3 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. He missed Week 2 due to a concussion, but made sure to make an impact in his return. In Week 3, Pierce finished with three receptions on five targets for 61 yards in the win. The rookie wideout was finally able to make some noise on the field. Hopefully, Pierce will be able to carry this success over into his next few contests. Although, fantasy managers shouldn't have much faith in the anyone outside of Michael Pittman Jr. and Jonathan Taylor on this offense. Pierce is worth holding in dynasty formats, but can be avoided basically everywhere else.

Nyheim Hines Sep 26 11:50pm ET
Nyheim Hines

Indianapolis Colts running back Nyheim Hines has seen very little action on the ground this season. A bulk of the touches goes to Jonathan Taylor, but Hines continues to get involved through the air. On Sunday, Hines hauled in five of his six targets for 23 yards in the win over the Kansas City Chiefs. Through three games, Hines has seen at least five targets in all of those contests. That being said, he should be able to hold RB3 value in PPR formats going forward. He'll be worth considering as a flex play in PPR leagues for the Week 4 matchup against the Tennessee Titans.
