I believe in VA Law he is required to wear a helmet, so most likely he had it on.

My prayers go out to him for a quick and speedy recovery. He definitely was a great linebacker while at PSU. I know exactly where that road meets the beltway. It sounds like it may have been a bit of a speeding episode then anything else.

Looking at the lost of injuries listed (leg/arm) it appears as if his head was undamaged - that would indicate, to me, that he was wearing a helmet.

Hope he makes a full recovery.

Maybe the NFL season should just be year-long...

the players can't seem to stay out of trouble.

I am so sorry to hear this, but am relieved that his injuries are not life-threatening. Here's to a speedy recovery LaVar!

i hate to hear this. im going to a funeral tonight for a state cop who was killed on his motorcycle last week. just off work, a minute away from home and had to spin around to chase down a speeder even though he was just off duty. unfortunately he tried to exceed the limitations of his bike and lost control and hit a parked semi.

even those who are trained and wearing a helmet arent immune to the machine

That sucks. I hate to see anyone get hurt like that. I hope he recovers and can lead a normal life... football is secondary to that.

i was shocked this story only got about 15 seconds of coverage, 20 minutes into sportscenter. of course "pac man" not commiting a crime or being near a crimescene was the headline story

and while we dont even hear that a helmet possibly saved arringtons life (or not), sportscenter devotes more time talking about the bengals quincy wilson being arrested.

wow. maybe the public (or media) only cares if it was a sb winning qb.

oh well, get better lavar. (i think this will be the nail in the coffin of his football career)

I pray that Arrington is okay, and recovers fully. Regardless of where he plays...

Life is more important the football. May God bless him.
