When contacted by Scout.com this evening, Jarrett's agent, Darin Morgan, confirmed the accident.

"At this point, it appears that Dwayne only has bumps and bruises. Dwayne has consulted with the Panthers' medical personnel and we will continue to monitor his medical situation.

Dwayne and I talked soon after the accident and thank goodness he was wearing his seatbelt and wasn't seriously hurt."
