Report: Cardinals Player Had Cooking Accident, Is Out Four Games


The Cardinals placed cornerback Antonio Hamilton on the reserve/non-football injury list following a cooking accident in his home, according to a report from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo.

Hamilton is expected to miss the first four games of the season.

Hamilton confirmed the accident with a picture on Twitter of severe burns on his legs.

“Had the greatest camp of my career and last Monday I had an accident that could’ve ended up deadly for me and my family,” Hamilton wrote.

“But instead I got the short end of it by having my feet severely burned (2nd degree). It was literally a freak accident and God spared me to only have these injuries,” Hamilton continued.

Hamilton was expected to begin the season as a starter for the Cardinals.
