Reports: Donte Stallworth in 'stable condition' after hot air balloon accident

Free agent wide receiver Donte Stallworth has been taken to a Miami hospital along with his girlfriend after sustaining injuries in a hot air balloon accident on Saturday morning.

Stallworth's balloon reportedly crashed into power lines at about 10 a.m. Saturday at 29th Street and SW 217th Avenue in Miami, according to the Miami Herald. The balloon operator was unharmed, but Stallworth and his girlfriend were taken to the Trauma Center at Kendall Regional Hospital, according to the report.

Stallworth was burned in the accident and is in stable condition, according to ESPN.com's Mike Reiss.

The injuries are not serious and the 32-year-old will be able to resume his football career, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Stallworth appeared in just one game for the Patriots last season and has changed teams every season since 2006, playing for the Eagles, Browns, Ravens and Redskins.

His best seasons came with the Saints, including 945 yards and seven touchdowns in 2005. But a 2009 arrest on DUI manslaughter charges stemming from an incident in Miami Beach derailed his career, and he was suspended for the entire 2009 regular season.
