Giants' Scott will be OK after car wreck

BY foxsports • May 13, 2011

Giants running back Charles Scott will be "fine," according to his agent, after being hospitalized in intensive care following a serious car accident in Louisiana, the Newark Star-Ledger reported Friday.

It is unclear exactly where the accident occurred, but FOX 44 in Baton Rouge reported Scott was a passenger in the vehicle Wednesday night and was transported to a hospital.

"He's doing well. He's definitely got some cuts and bruises. He'll be okay, put it that way," Scott's agent Jon Perzley told the Star-Ledger. "He's going to be fine. And anytime there's a car accident, you're just so glad he's alive. He's like a brother to me. He's okay."

Perzley emphasized Scott's injuries were not career threatening, and Scott tweeted Thursday night that he was doing well.

"I just want to thank all my friends, fans & family for the many needed prayers and support," Scott wrote on his Twitter account. "I'm doing well and will be home soon. Love y'all."

Scott is no longer in intensive care.

The 22-year-old was a sixth-round draft pick of Philadelphia in 2010, and finished last season on the Giants' practice squad.

It is the second serious car accident involving a former LSU Tiger and the Giants. Last summer safety Chad Jones, the Giants' third-round draft pick, was involved in a single-vehicle accident in New Orleans that nearly required the amputation of his left leg.

Jones is rehabbing his leg and hoping to return in 2012.
