Giants running back Charles Scott was involved in a car accident in Louisiana earlier this week, according to his agent, Jon Perzley.

"He's doing well. He's definitely got some cuts and bruises. He'll be okay, put it that way," Perzley said by phone minutes ago. "He's going to be fine. And anytime there's a car accident, you're just so glad he's alive. He's like a brother to me. He's okay."

Last night, Scott posted a similarly positive message on his Twitter account.

"I just want to thank all my friends, fans & family for the many needed prayers and support," Scott wrote on his Twitter account. "I'm doing well and will be home soon. Love y'all."

Giants cornerback Michael Coe tweeted Scott was in a "terrible" accident and that he was in ICU. Perzley said Scott is no longer in ICU.

Perzley did not share any details about the accident except to say it occurred late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning. A report by Fox 44 in Baton Rouge, La., indicated Scott was a passenger in the car.

"Listen, just let all the fans know he's okay, he will be OK," Perzley said. "Nothing's life threatening. He's resilent. He'll bounce back. It's unfortunate that when this happens, it's not his fault. And when it's not his fault and the other person gets really hurt, it's not good. It's never a good thing."

Scott, a sixth-round pick of the Eagles last April who was on the Giants' practice squad all of last season and was signed to a reserve/future contract for 2011, is the second Giant/former LSU player in as many years to suffer injuries in a car accident. Last June, safety and third-round pick Chad Jones nearly lost his leg when he struck a pole in New Orleans.
