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

Houston 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 Saturday on Houston's injuries
because he has yet to be examined by a team doctor.
