Receiver Donte' Stallworth, who was with the Patriots in 2012 training camp and later returned to the team for one regular-season game, is in stable condition after being involved in a hot air balloon accident Saturday morning, a source close to the player told ESPN.

Stallworth was with his girlfriend when the balloon hit power lines, causing them both to be shocked and burned. A source told ESPN that Stallworth wasn't seriously injured.

Stallworth, 32, caught a touchdown pass in his lone game with the Patriots last season (Dec. 10 vs. the Texans) before going on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

In 2009, Stallworth served 24 days in a Miami jail for DUI manslaughter.
