Chicago Bears tight end Jimmy Graham said he is "fine" after he escaped a car crash Thursday "unscathed."

Graham explained he was attempting to avoid a vehicle in the center lane when the crash happened.

Just wanted to get ahead of this and tell everybody I’m fine. Was in an accident this morning trying to avoid a disabled vehicle in the center lane. I walked away from it unscathed. Blessings

Andy Slater of Fox Sports 640 echoed those sentiments when he reported the tight end was in a single-car crash and "swerved to avoid a car that was blocking the road."

Graham has been in the league since the New Orleans Saints selected him in the third round of the 2010 NFL draft. He has played for the Saints, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers and Bears.

The five-time Pro Bowler posted two seasons with more than 1,200 yards with the Saints and was one of the best tight ends of his generation in his prime.

He was still somewhat productive for Chicago last year and tallied 50 catches for 456 yards and eight touchdowns.

Graham is under contract with the Bears through the 2021 season.
