MIAMI (AP) -Miami Dolphins quarterback Daunte Culpepper said Thursday that he slightly bruised his left, non throwing hand in a two-car accident, but escaped serious injury.
``I am fine,'' Culpepper said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.
Culpepper said the vintage Chevrolet car he was driving was rear-ended by another motorist late Wednesday night on a South Florida highway. He said the top of his left hand was bruised and he got X-rays as a precaution.
``The real problem is that the guy damaged my 1975 convertible Caprice Classic,'' Culpepper said.
Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Sgt. Mark Wysocky confirmed Culpepper was involved in the accident but had no immediate details.
``We've spoken to Daunte and he assured us he was fine,'' Dolphins spokesman Harvey Greene said.
Culpepper was Miami's starting quarterback for the first four games of the 2006 season, before the Dolphins shut him down because of his ongoing knee problems. Culpepper needed reconstructive surgery after tearing knee ligaments while playing for the Minnesota Vikings in 2005, then was traded to the Dolphins after that season.
His rehab from the knee injury is ongoing, but he was cleared to resume football workouts earlier this month.
Culpepper has asked the Dolphins to release him from his contract so he can compete to be a starting quarterback elsewhere this season. The Dolphins have told Culpepper that they want to trade him, and last week acquired Trent Green - who's almost certain to be this year's starting quarterback - from the Kansas City Chiefs in exchange for a draft pick.
