Giants running back Charles Scott will be “fine” after serious car crash

Giants second year running back Charles Scott was involved in a serious car accident that put him in the intensive care unit in a Louisiana hospital earlier this week.

Thankfully, it appears Scott will be fine in the long run.

“He’ll be okay, put it that way,” his agent Jon Perzley told Zach Berman of the Newark Star-Ledger. “He’s going to be fine. And anytime there’s a car accident, you’re just so glad he’s alive.”

The nature of Scott’s injuries are a little unclear.  Perzley stressed Scott will absolutely be able to play football again.  He was the passenger in the car in an accident.

Scott, a sixth-round pick last year of the Eagles, is the second Giants player in as many offseasons to get in a serious crash in Louisiana.   Safety Chad Jones nearly lost his leg in a crash last year.

    Maybe they should figure out why he has an Eagles jersey on in his photo while they are investigating…

    Because he was a 6th round pick for the Eagles last year. It says that right in the story. My guess is he was a waiver wire or cut last year that the Giants picked up and put on the practice squad/never activated. I don’t remember him getting a carry for the Giants last year.

  2. Two out of four responses by two people who obviously didn’t actually read the article where it clearly states he was drafted by the Eagles.

    Come on, people!
