    Did his airbag bruise his arm or what? He wasn't drunk or on drugs, so if he doesn't have anything other than soreness from having an accident at highway speed, I don't care. Look over those huge neck muscles the next time you're merging onto the highway Ryan, and don't bring your driving skills to the Autobahn.

    you're always going to have some pain after a crash, so I'm not too surprised at that. And it's possible he made a mistake or something happened with his car etc

    There's one place in all of the UK with the population of San Diego County. Give the guy a break.

    Yeah, but making a driving error and missing zero TC/game time as a result of it isn't football news. It's literally totally uninteresting, and likely shouldn't have even been reported. Unless his injuries are going to keep him from practicing, this is irrelevant.

    Yeah, its possible he just merged into another car while entering the highway, **** happens on big freeways when people are changing lanes.

    I just hope he doesnt have a concussion or any broken bones.....hell what am I talking about, I hope he doesn't have a high ankle sprain. :p

    population doesn't mean a thing, entering a road safely isn't rocket science as long as you're paying attention

    Oh, of course, the volume of traffic at an interchange has nothing to do with the likelihood of an accident occurring there, my bad...

    Per 10News, the accident happened at a little after midnight last night... I thought there was a curfew during TC?

    Shoot the guy can't play a complete season, he fumbles the ball away and now we find out he's a danger to himself and other on the roadway. Put him in a fawking bubble after the season ends with a damn baby sitter and keep him off the roadway.

    You sure can, but that has nothing to do with the rate at which traffic accidents occur relative to area population, now does it?

    idk if there is one but midnight especially with no major practice the next day isn't too bad, especially if he's on his way home

    Are all accidents trivial, or just ones that involve Charger players?

    A 2 car accident in which one driver suffered negligible injuries and the occupants of the other vehicle suffered none is pretty trivial to me. Having been in several car accidents, if no one is injured, and insurance/you can pay for the repairs, then it's nothing more significant than the inconvenience of having your car repaired, and therefore having to adjust the seat on your rental car the way you like it.

    Nothing more than a minor fender bender that never resulted in injury to anyone. In fact I have never had a mishap over 5 MPH. I've done some fancy driving to avoid high speed wrecks and thank God for giving me the ability to do so.

    If only that were true. Car accidents are a massive pain in the *** and if you're feeling pain immediately after the accident? I'd hate to see how you're feeling in the days/weeks following. Not to mention the pain that comes with dealing with insurance companies... :mad:
