Default Arrington in wreck...

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.

Senior writer Michael Smith covers the NFL for ESPN.com.

I wonder if he'll even play this season with this happening. What was his status before the wreck? Was anyone showing interest?

To my knowledge he was still rehabbing from his torn Achilles injury which is why he is still a free agent. But, with all of the injuries sustained from this accident I doubt he sees the field this year.

LaVar Arrington’s motorcycle crash fails to live up to its potential


Although it had everything you could want in a motorcycle accident – high speed, a ramp, and a novice rider – LaVar Arrington’s crash on Monday in Maryland disappointed many who saw the NFL linebacker total his bike.


“This was a crash that could have been legendary, you know? One of the greatest ever,” said Robert Lamont, who witnessed the crash. “But for whatever reason it just didn’t pan out that way. Sure, there were some broken bones, but it could have been so much more.”


Police officer Sgt. Michael Smetger, who responded to the scene, said that when he heard over the dispatch that a motorcycle had crashed into a guardrail on a highway ramp he expected something awesome.


“I thought there probably was a big fireball or some severed limbs – something breathtaking and dramatic. From what I heard, it had that sort of awesome potential,” said Smetger. “But then I was told it was LaVar Arrington in the crash, and I knew it was best if I lowered my expectations.”
