Ohio State defensive tackle Haskell Garrett, who was shot early Sunday morning, has been discharged from the Wexner Medical Center, according to an Ohio State spokesman.
Garrett was reported to be in stable condition following reports of a shooting shortly before 12:30 a.m. at the 400 Block of Chittenden Avenue. At the scene, officers found blood in the street and a shell casing near the blood, and Garrett had a gunshot wound through both the cheeks on his face. He was found by police from a blood trail to an apartment on East 11th Avenue.
On Monday morning, Ohio State head coach Ryan Day released a statement saying that he expected Garrett to be released from the hospital later that day.
“Haskell Garrett has been receiving excellent care at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center for the injuries he received on Sunday. We anticipate he will be released from the Medical Center this morning,” Day said in the statement. “On behalf of his family and this football program, we would like to thank all those who have been a part of Haskell’s treatment and we are grateful that he will be heading home today. We will continue to help him and his family any way we can to expedite his recovery.”
Throughout his Ohio State career, Garrett has tallied 20 tackles (11 solo), 2.5 tackles for loss and one pass breakup in 33 games.
