Former Bears and ‘Skins wide receiver Josh Morgan shot himself with his gun while cleaning it at his house in Virginia on Jan. 31, according to a report from the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office.

The 30-year-old Morgan was taken to a hospital with “non-life-threatening injuries.” A spokesperson for Morgan told TMZ on Wednesday that the incident was a “simple accident,” and said that the NFL player was fine.


On Feb. 4, police charged Morgan with misdemeanor reckless use of a firearm.
