Fred Smoot's jaw is broken in five places as the result of a recent car accident, and he's out of the hospital and recovering, according to Vikings head coach Brad Childress. There aren't a lot of details available at the moment, but there is no reason to believe (well, not much reason, anyway) that Smoot was engaged in any sort of Eddie Griffin-like activity at the time of the accident. I would like to know where Roethlisberger was at the time, though.

Smoot is unable to talk, though, which will come as great news to at least 2% of his colleagues in the NFL. He has been exchanging text messages with Childress, though, so you can relax, women of Minnesota. Smoot's digits are still fully functional and capable of dishing out pleasure in high doses.
