LANHAM, Md. (AP) -Former Redskins and Giants linebacker LaVar Arrington was hospitalized with serious but not life-threatening injuries after his motorcycle crashed on a highway ramp, police said.
Arrington lost control and hit a guardrail, Maryland State Police Sgt. Russell Newell said.
Arrington, who turns 29 Wednesday, was wearing a helmet and alcohol was not involved in the accident, Newell said. Arrington was issued two citations - one for operating the motorcycle without a proper license, and one for the crash itself.
Washington drafted Arrington No. 2 overall in 2000, and he made three Pro Bowl appearances while with the Redskins. But he injured his knee in 2004, his playing time decreased, and Arrington bought out his contract after the 2005 season.
He then joined the Giants but was injured in October and played only six games last season. New York released him in February.
