Free agent wide receiver Donte' Stallworth suffered at least some burns but is expected to be okay following a hot air balloon accident Saturday, his agent told USA TODAY Sports.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus, in an email to USA TODAY Sports, wrote of Stallworth, "He's ok. Has some burns but he will be fine."

ESPN Boston was the first to report the accident.

The Associated Press reported that Stallworth has "serious" burns and had been hospitalized. AP said the basket carrying three hot air balloon passengers crashed into the power lines while airborne, according to Miami-Dade Police spokesman Roy Rutland. Two passengers were transported to a trauma center, Rutland said. A third was not injured.

Rutland referred news media to the National Transportation Safety Board. The NTSB had no immediate information about the crash.

Stallworth was signed by the Patriots in 2012, but he was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury following New England's Week 14 win over the Houston Texans.

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