CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -Carolina Panthers rookie receiver Dwayne Jarrett escaped serious injury after being involved in a car accident.
Jarrett's agent, Darin Morgan, said Jarrett's car was rear-ended Wednesday night on Interstate 77 near Charlotte. Jarrett, who walked away from the accident, was checked out Thursday by team doctors.
``It appears he has no serious injuries, just some bumps and bruises,'' Morgan said.
Jarrett, who starred at Southern California, was Carolina's second-round pick. He's expected to compete with Drew Carter for the starting receiver's job opposite Steve Smith.
