Rhode Island Hospital confirmed Langi was released from the hospital late Saturday night.
Patriots Coach Bill Belichick began his press conference after Sunday’s game by saying: “First of all, I just wanted to, on behalf of the team, express the thoughts and prayers that are with Harvey and Cassie from the accident that happened over the weekend. We pray that they’re being looked over and they’re doing better – it sounds like they are. That was a really unfortunate situation, one that I think really shook everybody in the organization.”
On Saturday afternoon the Patriots confirmed that Langi and a passenger were stopped at a traffic light when they were rear-ended by another vehicle.READ MORE: 1-To-3 Inches Of Rain Coming, Flash Flood Watch In Effect Through Thursday Morning
“They were both transported to a local hospital with injuries and are receiving medical attention,” the team said. “Our thoughts are with Harvey, the Langi family and those who sustained injuries in last night’s accident.”
According to Kyed, Langi and his wife suffered injuries that are considered serious but not life-threatening.
Foxboro Police shared a photo late Friday night of two heavily damaged cars involved in a crash in the area of Commercial Street at Fisher Street, but did not confirm if Langi was involved.
