NEWARK, N.J. (AP)

New Jersey police say New York Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson suffered minor injuries in a two-car crash early Saturday.

State Police Lt. Stephen Jones says Wilkerson was driving a 2011 Dodge Challenger northbound on the Garden State Parkway in Kenilworth, Union County. He attempted to change lanes and struck the rear left side of a 2011 Toyota Sienna carrying 11 people.

Wilkerson's vehicle flipped over and came to rest on its roof.

The Jets say Wilkerson received stitches in his forearm. Jones says three people in the minivan reported pain but declined treatment at the scene.

Police don't believe alcohol was involved. Wilkerson was ticketed for careless driving and failure to maintain his lane.

The team says he's expected to be fine by training camp next month.
