Jets RB Houston involved in car accident

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (April 23, 2006) -- New York Jets running back Cedric Houston was injured in a one-car accident late Friday night.

He was taken to the University of Tennessee Medical Center where he was treated for injuries that were not considered life threatening and released.

The former Tennessee standout was a passenger in a car that went up an embankment on a rural stretch of Interstate 40, about 50 miles west of Knoxville, and hit a tree stump, Tennessee Highway Patrol officials told Knoxville television station WATE.

Charges were not immediately filed against the driver.

The Jets would not comment on Houston's injuries because he has yet to be examined by a team doctor.
