Stallworth’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says the 10-year NFL veteran won’t suffer any permanent damage from the accident in Homestead and will be able to continue his career.

Rosenhaus says “He’s going to be OK. He has some burns, but he’s going to be fine.”

Rosenhaus says one of the passengers was Stallworth’s girlfriend, but he would not say whether she was hurt.

A Miami-Dade Police spokesman says two passengers were injured and transported to a trauma center. A third passenger in the basket was not injured.

Stallworth was suspended for the 2009 season after a car he was driving struck and killed a pedestrian in South Florida that March. He spent 24 days in jail for a DUI manslaughter conviction.
