Weimer was involved in a car accident yesterday in Dallas and is currently in the hospital.

We spoke to his team manager, J.C. Waterhouse, who had this to say this morning:

"Jake's injury is not life threatening. He just has mild facial injuries from the impact. Him and Billy [Laninovich] were leaving dinner on their way back to the hotel last night when the accident occured. Billy is okay- his arm is just a bit sore. I don't think they were screwing around or anything. Jake was driving and the roads were wet and they slid off the road. He may be released from the hospital tomorrow morning. I was over there this morning and he is okay. They just want to make sure the one facial fracture is going to be stable."
