LaVar Arrington Hurt In Md. Motorcycle Crash

WASHINGTON -- Former Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington was injured Monday afternoon in a motorcycle accident in Prince George's County, according to police.

The incident happened at about 1 p.m. on a ramp from westbound Route 50 to the Outer Loop of the Beltway.

Arrington apparently lost control of his motorcycle and hit a guardrail, officials said.

He was transported to Prince George's County Hospital with what officials described as "non-life-threatening" injuries.

State police are investigating.

Free-agent linebacker LaVar Arrington was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident in the Washington, D.C., area, the player's agent told ESPN.com on Monday.

Carl Poston said it was his understanding that Arrington suffered a broken bone in his arm, three broken bones in his leg, cuts and bruises. The injuries do not appear to be life-threatening. He is recovering at Prince George's Hospital Center.

Arrington, a former Pro Bowl linebacker for the Washington Redskins, is not currently under contract to any team. The 28-year-old Arrington is still rehabilitating an Achilles tendon tear that cut short his 2006 season with the New York Giants.

Was he wearing a helmet? (not a sneer, just a question). Glad to hear the injuries apparently are not life threatening.

Any team that does not put a no motorcycles clause in every players' contract has more $$ than sense.

Smith has said nothing. I'm watching NFL Live now.

Almost exactly a year after Ben's motorcycle accident. I hope he's okay. He may have been an underachieving prima-donna in the NFL, but he was awesome in PSU.

Hope he's ok. How old is the guy? is it safe to say that if the injuries are really bad his career may be over??

I think it's safe to say he won't be playing in '07. Damn, that sucks.

Hope he is alright. I used to love to ride motorcycles until I had my accident. Now I just look at them as death machines.
