Buccaneers defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul was involved in a single car accident in Florida early Thursday morning.  He and a passenger were taken to the hospital after the 5 a.m. crash.

According to reports JPP wasn’t speeding at the time of the accident and wasn’t cited for it either.  He was released from the hospital and will be evaluated by the team. 

Via TMZ Sports:

Bucs general manager Jason Licht tells TMZ Sports the team’s aware of the incident and says JPP was NOT cited. Licht adds there was a passenger in the car, whose condition is unclear.

Licht went on to say, “Our immediate concern is for the safety and well being of Jason and his passenger. We have been in contact with Jason and will be getting him further evaluated by our medical staff in the near future.”

Accidents do happen, but something tells me there’s more to the story.  The details will eventually come out.
