MIAMI (AP) - Miami Dolphins quarterback Daunte Culpepper says he
slightly bruised his non-throwing hand in a two-car accident last
night, but escaped serious injury.
Culpepper says the vintage Chevrolet car he was driving was rear-ended by another motorist on a South Florida highway. He says the top of his left hand was bruised and he got X-rays as a precaution.
Culpepper was Miami's starting quarterback for the first four games of the 2006 season, before the Dolphins shut him down because of lingering knee problems.
His rehab 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. The Dolphins have told Culpepper that they want to trade him, and last week acquired Trent Green from Kansas City and all but anointed him their number-one Q-B for the upcoming season.
