CHEVERLY, Md. (AP) -Three-time Pro Bowl linebacker LaVar Arrington was released from the hospital Monday, two weeks after breaking his right arm and severely cutting his leg in a motorcycle accident.
``He's doing much better,'' said Arrington's attorney, Rosalyn Pugh. ``I won't say he's 100 percent, but he's doing better.''
Pugh said Arrington had a ``little limp'' from a gash in his leg as he left Prince George's Hospital Center and will also need time to recover from the broken bone in his right forearm. She had no timetable for Arrington's full recovery.
Arrington crashed on a highway ramp two days before his 29th birthday. He was issued citations for the accident and operating a motorcycle without a proper license.
Pugh said Arrington is focused on promoting his new restaurant in Prince George's County, not far from the Washington Redskins' stadium. Arrington's football career is on hold, at least temporarily, because of his injuries.
Arrington had been hoping to sign with a new team this offseason after being cut by the New York Giants in February. He played one season with the Giants, appearing in only six games because of a torn Achilles' tendon. He made the Pro Bowl three times in six seasons with the Redskins before injuries and disagreements with coaches and management led to his departure.
