Former New England Patriots wide receiver Donte Stallworth is in a South Florida hospital Saturday after a hot-air balloon he was riding in with his girlfriend hit power lines, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN Boston.com.
Stallworth was burned in the accident, but ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the injuries aren’t serious enough to jeopardize the ten-year veteran’s career.
The accident occurred around 10:00am eastern time and involved a third passenger who was reportedly not injured.
After spending the first four seasons of his career with the New Orleans Saints, the 32-year-old Stallworth has bounced around the league, playing with Philadelphia, Cleveland, Baltimore, Washington and Philadelphia. He is currently a free agent.
