Brent Celek Unharmed As Passenger In DUI Crash

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Brent Celek was a passenger in an early Thursday morning car accident that has resulted in the arrest of the driver for driving under the influence of alcohol.

No injuries were reported in the accident, which occurred at 2:30am ET on a highway off-ramp near Lincoln Financial Field.

“Thankfully, no one was injured and, to our knowledge, Brent is not facing any legal charges,” an Eagles spokesman said in an email to the Philadelphia Daily News.

Celek turned 27 on Wednesday and is coming off a season where he caught 62 passes for 811 yards and five touchdowns. In 80 career games with the Eagles, the 2007 fifth-round pick out of Cincinnati has 223 receptions for 2,789 yards and 19 touchdowns and signed a six-year, $29.25 million contract extension in December of 2009.
